Clip Mouth Unit – Jen Baker / Dafna Naphtali duo project (trombone/voice/electronics, voice/live-sound-processing/electronics)

(Dafna Naphtali / Jen Baker at SWiTCH)


Clip Mouth Unit has a unique set of open form compositions for their multi-faceted performance concept – merging electro-acoustics, multi-phonics, and extended techniques, integrated directly with scalar and rhythmic concepts.   After improvising together for several years, including a presentation at 2014 ISIM (Int’l Society of Improvising Musicians Conference), the duo been quietly (and not so quietly!) preparing a unique set of open form compositions for their multi-faceted performance concept merging electro-acoustics, multi-phonics, extended techniques, integrated directly with scalar and rhythmic concepts.
