Flowsonic Booking Proposal for 2020

From 01 December 2019 to 31 August 2020
Ronnie Burrage: Drums, Voice, Electronics; Michael Gregory Jackson: Guitars, Voice, Electronics; Jair-Rohm Parker Wells: Basses, Electronics


FlowSonic is Ronnie Burrage - drums, voice and electronics, Michael Gregory Jackson - guitar, voice and electronics and Jair-Rôhm Parker Wells - NS Design basses and electronics.

Ronnie Burrage has been a formidable figure on the NYC Jazz scene since 1976. He has performed and/or recorded with Wayne Shorter, Sonny Rollins, Pat Metheny, Jaco Pastorius, McCoy Tyner and Jackie McLean. He is featured on more than 150 recordings and has toured on all four continents. With FlowSonic, he continues to perform some of the most interesting and cutting edge jazz in the world.

Michael Gregory Jackson is one of the most influential, unfettered and innovative guitarists to have emerged from New York’s avant-garde loft scene in the 70s. Jackson is a master guitarist, producer, composer, and improviser. He has spanned and at times defied musical genres. He has worked with a long string of music giants that include Nile Rodgers, Oliver Lake, Anthony Braxton, Walter Becker, David Murray, Julius Hemphill, and Wadada Leo Smith, to name a few. He has recorded for Black Saint, Hat-Hut, Arista, RCA/BMG, Island Records and his own GOLDEN label. Jackson continues to passionately define the state of the art with FlowSonic.

Jair-Rôhm Parker Wells is one of the founding members of the improvising band Machine Gun with Thomas Chapin and Robert Musso and the founder of the Meeting Interdisciplinary Arts Festival in Stockholm, Sweden. He has collaborated with Bob Belden, Karl Berger, Daniel Carter, Jaron Lanier, John Sinclair and Tony Scott. Compositions from his "Liberation" cycle are featured as part of "res·o·nant", the light and sound installation by artist Mischa Kuball at the Jewish Museum Berlin. Jair-Rohm's eclectic approach to the practical application of sophisticated electronics with the electric upright bass propels FlowSonic to the outer limits of originality.
