Mirah and Jherek Bischoff at BRIC House, May 5
(Published: April 14, 2016)

BRIC is pleased to welcome Brooklyn songwriter Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn and Los Angeles musical polymath Jherek Bischoff to BRIC House on May 5. The night will feature sets from both Mirah and Bischoff, with a euphonious string quartet rounding out the band. Expect to hear tried and true favorites from their back catalog along with new music from both Mirah and Bischoff's forthcoming albums. The sets will also feature Kane Mathis on the Kora, a complex 21 string West African chordophone, and Deerhoof's Greg Saunier on percussion.

Mirah has been creating incorruptible independent pop music since the late 1990's. She has released over a dozen solo and collaborative recordings on K Records, Kill Rock Stars and various domestic and foreign independent labels. Defined by her graceful songwriting and adventuresome recordings, Pitchfork has praised her "incredible voice-a versatile coo that can flit from low, sultry tones to high, airy falsetto in one breath." Mirah has always sought the creative company of unique collaborators, from multi-media artists and orchestral composers to DJs. A partial list of some of her collaborators includes Phil Elverum (The Microphones/Mount Eerie), Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Tara Jane O'Neil, Khaela Maricich (The Blow), Melanie Valera (Tender Forever), Lori Goldston, Britta Johnson and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

Jherek Bischoff is a Los Angeles-based composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumental performer. In his 30-odd years, he has collaborated with the likes of Kronos Quartet, Bang on a Can, David Byrne and Neil Gaiman and has performed in venues and festivals around the globe including Carnegie Hall, BAM, Adelaide Festival and Tasmania's MONA FOMA. His work as a composer has garnered commissions from Kronos Quartet, Lincoln Center and St. Ann's Warehouse and performances by Seattle Symphony, Adelaide Art Orchestra, Wordless Music and yMusic. The Guardian's 4-star review of his 2012 release Composed hailed his work a "collection of lavishly orchestrated pop songs." 2014 saw his musical scoring debut with Johnny Breitwieser at Vienna's Schauspielhaus. And in 2015, Bischoff ventured into television, contributing work to Starz' Blunt Talk and Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. This year, Bischoff will release his highly anticipated, Kickstarter-funded album Cistern, a collection of ambient works recorded with a live orchestra.

Tickets for this event are on-sale now via BRICArtsMedia.org.
