MAN FOREVER is an exploratory percussion project helmed by John Colpitts (aka Kid Millions), one of New York’s most versatile and critically-lauded musical collaborators, and a founding member of Oneida. Since its inception in 2010, MAN FOREVER has hosted an impressive list of guest performers, but few have been as specially qualified to perform Colpitts’ technically challenging meditative workouts. Colpitts continues to be one of the most in-demand drummers in New York. Throughout 2013 he toured as a member of Spiritualized, performed in duos with Greg Fox and Jim Sauter, recorded a record with Akron/Family, released an album with People of the North on Thrill Jockey, and performed with Rhys Chatham as a member of Oneida. So far in 2014 he has recorded an album with Rick Moody and has performed with William Basinski at the Ecstatic Music Festival in March.
Cincinnati, Ohio-based saxophone improviser and experimental artist JON LORENZ has been heavily involved in Cincinnati’s experimental scene for many years, running the Art Damage Lodge from 2007-2011, and presenting shows then after under the moniker Dome Presents. He may be best known for his heavily amplified sax/ clarinet duo, Wasteland Jazz Unit, but also plays in numerous other projects including Public Housing, Early Tunnels, and Ohio Unsemble. He has also played in or collaborated with the likes of Burning Star Core, Rhys Chatham, Ryan Jewell, Fred Lonberg-Holm, C. Spencer Yeh, Mike Shiflet, Darin Gray, Dylan Posa, and many others. Solo, LORENZ combines amplified sax smears with tape loops, homemade electronics, and oscillators.
