Australian piano/drums duo PIVIXKI is a classic example of something that works when it shouldn't: a versatile composer hammering hyper-fast piano riffs referencing, Cecil Taylor, Slayer, Xenakis, and Ethiopiques grooves over immaculate blast beats by one the hardest-working drummers in international grind, who also produces hip-hop and electro tracks in Melbourne.
Throw musical polymath Mike Patton into this territory and you have a genuinely dangerous proposition: music with the borders completely invisible and the possibilities immense. An early supporter of the band, and one of the world's most versatile and creative composer/vocalists EVER, the resulting trio promises an uncompromising night of delirious sonic reality.
Three cavernous musical minds do battle at the best rock venue in town: PIVIXKI/PATTON play one night only at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, May 18th, 2011. This is an American premiere AND exclusive for PIVIXKI so, DON"T MISS OUT.
