Event Description
Kristine Leschper, Nina Ryser, Avalon Tassonyi

Kristine Leschper:
Kristine Leschper is an interdisciplinary artist working in sound, text, image, and performance. Her work positions itself around the spectacle of the human condition, deeply interested in questions of meaning-making, womanhood, socio-ecological systems, and the wielding of power. Her personal philosophies around music-making approach the sonic landscape as an object with shape, dimension and weight. She has presented over 250 live performances across the US, UK, and Europe.

Leschper’s The Opening, Or Closing Of A Door, due March 4 via ANTI/Epitaph, is a paean to the sensory world. It’s the first Leschper has released under her given name, having retired the moniker Mothers after eight years of performing and releasing music under it. Though both projects are guided by Leschper’s idiosyncratic approach to songwriting, they couldn’t sound more different. While Mothers drew inspiration from the stark, skeletal sounds of post-punk and contemporary folk, Leschper’s new work is practically baroque, integrating an array of synthesizers, strings, woodwinds, and over a dozen percussive instruments.

Nina Ryser:
Nina Ryser is a Philadelphia-based musician and composer. Her self-titled experimental pop project consists of lush synth compositions, vocals and electronics. Nina’s background is in contemporary classical composition, working with a variety of ensembles including the American Symphony Orchestra. Nina has played in many bands, including Palberta – a DIY art-punk/pop trio of 10 years that has released 8 full-length records reviewed by the New York Times, NPR Music, Rolling Stone, and Pitchfork; they have toured prolifically, and opened for Bikini Kill and Deerhoof. Nina is currently working on her seventh full-length solo album, as well as a synth-based film score for her friend's feature length sci-fi film, to be released in 2023.
