Art Bailey (b. 1971) is a pianist, accordionist, improviser, composer, and arranger, living in Brooklyn, NY. Bailey performs with such notable musicians as Kirk Knuffke, Rene Hart,George Schuller, Guillermo Gregorio, Michael Bisio, and Jeff Lederer. in 2014, he composed the score for Why We Dance, the award winning short film by Emily Faulkner.

October 25 marks the maiden voyage of the collective group of Christof Knoche (bass clarinet, electronics), Art Bailey (Fender Rhodes, electronics), and John O’Brien (drums).  They will be performing their own compositions and improvising freely, throwing shards of noise, melody, harmony and found sound at the audience, and each other. Familiar sounds will be forced through electric circuitry, molding and shaping their waveforms like pizza dough, and rendering them freakishly distorted and unrecognizable. No injuries will be sustained.
