Event: OCC.0248

Thom Nguyen

June 24, 2021

Thom Nguyen is an Asheville, North Carolina-based improviser and drummer of MANAS, YOE, Nest Egg, We Bow To No Masters, and more. Producing energetic bursts and invoking a sensitivity to space that one often associates with Free-Jazz and New Music percussion, Nguyen’s approach elegantly bridges works of sonic sculpture with a punk aesthetic of immediacy, aggression, and playfulness. This event showcased a fully improvised percussion set inside the BMCM+AC space using a drum kit and various percussion elements in the spirit of his recently released album, “Exits,” on Sige Records.
