museum exhibition of Aboriginal Art in 1995. Andy looks inspired by
Andy plays around frequently at venues in downtown Manhattan such as
the Knitting Factory, both solo and with cutting edge band leaders such
as John Zorn. Andy came out of the no wave jazz scene and is not afraid
of experimention in his playing, often incorporating found sound, readings
of mystical texts through the instrument, tape loops etceterca. His
playing has recently become infused with the cadences and scales of
South Indian Karnatic singing.
His CD, Arnhem land, is available as a Japanese import featuring duets
in some very unusual contexts, challenging avant garde music.
