Lotte Anker (sax)
Lotte Anker is a Copenhagen-based saxophone player and composer working in the field between experimental jazz/improvisation and contemporary music. Her music includes both melodic (often twisted or fragmented) elements and more abstract textural material and covers a wide territory from minimal, transparency to dense and dark expressionism. Lotte Anker has been initiator and bandleader of a number of highly acclaimed collaborations and groups such as Anker, Taborn, Cleaver (w/ Craig Taborn and Gerald Cleaver), Trio with Sylvie Courvoisier and Ikue Mori, to name a few. Other recent projects are the 8-piece group What River Ensemble, duo with Fred Frith and a quartet with Johannes Bauer, Clayton Thomas and Paul Lovens. Lotte has performed at major festivals and concert spaces in most of Europe, USA, Canada, Asia, Africa and the Middle-East and has also played and toured with Marilyn Crispell, Herb Robertson, Tim Berne, Okkyung Lee, Paal Nilssen-Love, Joelle Leandre, Raymond Strid, Sten Sandell, Andrew Cyrille, Phil Minton, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Peter Friis-Nielsen and many others. Compositional work includes music for both small group and large ensemble and for both contemporary new music and modern/experimental jazz ensembles – and a combination of these.

Michiyo Yagi (21-string koto, 17- and 18-string string bass kotos, 13-string koto, electronics, voice)
Michiyo Yagi studied the traditional Japanese transverse harp known as the koto under the late Tadao Sawai and Kazue Sawai, and graduated from the NHK Professional Training School for Traditional Musicians. During her subsequent tenure as Visiting Professor of Music at Wesleyan University in Connecticut, U.S.A. she premiered numerous modern compositions for koto and came under the influence of maverick American composers such as John Cage and Christian Wolff. Yagi’s debut CD Shizuku was produced by John Zorn and released on his Tzadik label in 1999. She has since been active as a recording artist, releasing Yural (2001) with her multi-koto ensemble Paulownia Crush; Seventeen (2005), entirely performed solo on the giant 17-string bass koto; Live! at SuperDeluxe (2006), a trio performance with Norwegians Ingebrigt Håker Flaten (contrabass) and Paal Nilssen-Love (drums); Head On (2008) and Volda (2010) with Nilssen-Love and Peter Brötzmann; Reflexions (2010), an album of duets with the experimental New York guitarist Elliott Sharp; Soul Stream (2011), a quartet session with Joe McPhee (pocket trumpet, saxophones), Lasse Marhaug (electronics) and Nilssen-Love; and Angular Mas (2013)s, a trio with Marhaug and Nilssen-Love; Ichi No Maki [Vol. 1] (Idiolect, 2014), credited to Dōjō, her “power duo” with Japanese jazz drummer Tamaya Honda and featuring guests Nils Peter Molvær (trumpet) and Nilssen-Love; and Ni No Maki [Vol. 2] (Idiolect, 2017), a second Dōjō CD with guests Akira Sakata (reeds & voice) and Keisuke Ohta (violin). An album of ambient music co-produced by the Norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset, and a trio recording with Giovanni Di Domenico (keyboards) and Chris Corsano (drums) are forthcoming. A CD of original compositions featuring Yagi’s vocals is nearly completed, and a contemporary classical recording of written and commissioned music is also in development. An eclectic performer who continually challenges conventions, Yagi has played at the Moers, Kongsberg Jazz, Punkt, Újbuda Jazz, Musique Actuel Victoriaville, Archipel, Bang on a Can, Tokyo Summer, Vision, Instal, Jazztopad, Sengawa Jazz, Fuji Rock, and Music Unlimited festivals. Notable co-performers include Mark Dresser, Jim O’Rourke, Sidsel Endresen, Han Bennink, Alan Silva, Kazutoki Umezu, Raz Mesinai, Yoshihide Otomo, Ned Rothenberg, Knut Buen, Bugge Wesseltoft, Satoko Fujii, Håkon Kornstad, Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Masahiko Sato, Thomas Strønen, Carl Stone, Billy Bang, Keiji Haino, Mats Gustafsson, Roger Turner, Gerry Hemingway, and Mani Neumeier. Yagi’s koto has been featured in ex-Judy & Mary guitarist/singer Takuya’s band, and she has recorded with neo-prog rocker Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), J-pop idol Ayumi Hamasaki, and singer-songwriter Angela Aki. In addition to leading the Michiyo Yagi Trio and performing solo concerts — all with an emphasis on her original compositions, extended techniques, and unique vocals based on the traditional jiuta style — she continues to be active as the leading improviser on her chosen instrument.
