Bill Frisell
Close Your Eyes
Featuring Eyvind Kang
& Jim Woodring

Saturday, September 15
at 8pm

The Invisible Dog Art Center

Co-presented with The Invisible Dog Art Center

“[Bill Frisell is] At the very epicenter of modern American music.”—BBC

“I believe music and drawing come from the same place. Whatever it is inside of us that makes us do these's the same”—Bill Frisell

Bill Frisell offers an intimate insight into his creative process. He invites viola player and longtime collaborator Eyvind Kang and acclaimed visual artist Jim Woodring to explore his extensive note books. While the two musicians seek to make sense of Frisell’s musical thoughts and ideas, Woodring illuminates what he hears with real-time illustrations.
