A mainstay of the "downtown" creative music scene in the '80s and early
'90s, Samm Bennett will return from Japan to perform at Location One for his
first New York City appearance in 7 years! Bennett is a drummer, a
percussionist and a creator of electronic music. He will perform a few of
his trademark solo pieces followed by an evening of trios with guitarist
Marc Ribot and Ned Rothenberg on saxophone and clarinets.

During Bennett's New York years he led his own group, Chunk, and played a
central role in the cooperative groups, Bosho (with Kumiko Kimoto, Yuval
Gabay and Hanh Rowe), Semantics (with Elliott Sharp and Ned Rothenberg) and
Third Person (with the late Tom Cora on cello and an ever-evolving cast of
third persons). He also contributed to various projects of John Zorn,
Shelley Hirsch, George Cartwright, Christian Marclay and many others. Both
his solo work and his group compositions are characterized by intricate,
multi-directional rhythms and rich, varied sonic textures.

In 1996 Bennett relocated to Tokyo, where his primary ongoing project is
Skist, a duo with singer and electronic sound creator Haruna Ito. Skist
tracks have appeared on compilations from labels such as Mille Plateaux,
FatCat and Luaka Bop; their first full length CD ELLIPSIS was released in
Japan in September 2002 on their own POLARITY label. In addition Bennett has
performed and recorded in Asia with many artists, including: Otomo
Yoshihide, shamisen virtuoso Tanaka Yumiko, Okinawan singer/sanshin player
Daiku Tetsuhiro, Kazutoki Umezu and Korean hojok master and shaman Kim Suk
Chul. Along with Ned Rothenberg and guitarist Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Bennett is
a member of the newly-formed trio, R.U.B., whose first release Are You Be is
just out on Animul Records.

Marc Ribot's latest release on Atlantic is a solo recording entitled Saints.
He leads the CUBANOS POSTIZOS and has played live and on recordings with a
who's/who of musicians: John Zorn, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits and Medeski,
Martin and Wood, to name but a few.

Ned Rothenberg has performed internationally in solo and group contexts for
25 years. He has lead the ensembles Double Band, Power Lines and SYNC (with
Jerome Harris, guitars and Samir Chaterjee, tabla) and has worked on other
projects with Paul Dresher, Yuji Takahashi, Sainkho Namchylak, Elliott
Sharp, John Zorn, Katsuya Yokoyama, and Evan Parker. His latest solo
recording is a double-CD, Interval on Animul Records.
