The viola and bassoon are two instruments rarely associated with free improvisation and noise; yet Amy Cimini and Katherine Young rip it up with particular aplomb, weaving disjunct lines, constructing chaotic sound masses, and raising towering monoliths. Crafting their improvised materials into tight structures, they capture the compositional, timbral and expressive breadth of this uncommon coupling: from divergently soloistic to profoundly intertwined playing, from a slowly unfolding intimacy to a jagged and kinetic style. Cimini and Young lunge and flutter through their materials with the intuition and energy of constant discovery.

Violist Amy Cimini and bassoonist Katherine Young have been performing together as Architeuthis Walks on Land since 2003. The duo developed their approach to improvisation in Chicago and New York City's rich experimental music communities, where they have collaborated with artists like Anthony Braxton, Peter Evans, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Jessica Pavone, and the Tri-Centric Orchestra.

This concert is brought to you by the Alternating Currents Live series, broadcast on WMSE (91.7) FM, Milwaukee
