YAK // Jani Parsons + Chris Sies

  • Narloch Piano Studio 4636 North Francisco Avenue Chicago, IL, 60625 United States (map)

The ambient/industrial duo YAK from Detroit visits Chicago on a midwest tour. They're joined on the bill by Jani Parsons (pianist) and Chris Sies (percussionist) performing solo and duo works. The two pairs will perform a variety of music including works by Christopher Cerrone, Olivier Messiaen, Nicholas Deyoe, and works from YAK's debut album "BOS MOTUS".

YAK is an ambient/industrial duo of amplified, bowed friction on strings and metal. Their 2017 Midwest Tour is an audio-visual journey into the existential mind-state of the Tibetan beast, the Yak. These sounds are tailor-made for the shaggy beast of burden of the Himalayan Plateau, evoking their life and spirit in a mesmerising structured improvisation cycle.
