Fire Museum Presents: Jake Meginsky

JAKE MEGINSKY (percussion/electronics) has collaborated and performed with such artists as Milford Graves, Alvin Lucier, Joan Labarbara, Greg Kelley, Bhob Rainey, Vic Rawlings, Joe McPhee, Thurston Moore, William Parker, John Blum, Daniel Carter, Paul Flaherty, Arthur Brooks, Bill Nace, and John Truscinski.

HUCK magazine describes his work as “constantly transgressing the boundaries between acoustic and electronic, analog and digital” and continues, “invention is at the heart of Jake’s work even before he strikes a note.” Volcanic Tongue recently called Meginsky’s 2014 solo record, Lâ appel Du Vide, “a hallucinatory electro percussion masterpiece” and in the WIRE Magazine review of the album, Nick Cain writes, “the album uses little more than a couple of sounds, extracting often head spinning complexity from a minimum of means”.

Meginsky’s recordings can be found on Feeding Tube Records (Northampton, MA), Rel Records (Providence, RI), Open Mouth Records (Northampton, MA), Hells Half Halo (Seattle, WA), Wooden Finger Records (Belgium), Ultra Eczema Records (Belgium), and Ecstatic Peace Records (Northampton, MA). He recently remixed Body/Head’s (Kim Gordon & Bill Nace) “Last Mistress” for Matador Records (NYC).
