Live in Your Bedroom

One Sheet: 

There is a technical aspect to the works that supports their spontaneity: Igor uses a wide array of traditional guitar processing devices and techniques of his own invention, and Oakes uses his trombone to control a synthesizer through the use of a pitch-to-MIDI converter. The result is a dreamy musical continuum consisting of unusual timbres that you would swear came from more than just two players. 

The OG-O-GO Duo comprises Igor and Rodney Oakes. Igor worked for many years in his native Russia, performing with the Moscow State Film Orchestra, numerous jazz ensembles, and organizing two very successful improvisation groups, Roof and Asphalt. In addition, he taught jazz studies in two Moscow conservatories. 

Rodney Oakes is a composer who happens to play trombone. His interest in music and technology has occupied much of his creative energy, and he has written numerous works for MIDI trombone. He has worked and performed throughout the U.S. and Europe, and has taught music and computers at the Conservatory of Music in Krakow and the Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw as a Senior Fulbright Lecturer. 

Igor and Oakes live, teach, create, and perform in Los Angeles. They have worked together as a duo since 1993 and have produced Music Beyond, a series of festivals of improvised music. Both are also active as jazz musicians
