Don’t Trip Thursday’s w/s/g Gnostikos (Live Band)

On Thursday, December 12th for the newest installment of DON’T TRIP THURSDAY’S, DJ Silas Green will be sharing the stage with Michael Malis’ project GNOSTIKOS for a night of mind-bending tunes at Ziggy’s in downtown Ypsi.

GNOSTIKOS:

Michael Malis — piano, compositions
Zara Teicher — french horn, compositions
Kaleigh Wilder — baritone saxophone
Thom Monks — percussion

Bringing together performers and composers from a variety of practices, Gnostikos takes as its starting point the Greek concept of “gnossis:” knowledge that can only be acquired through experience, rather than through theory. There is an undercurrent in the concept of gnossis that implies many ways of knowing; a diffusion of knowledge, as opposed to a centralized orthodoxy; an emphasis on personal spiritual knowledge, unencumbered by authority and tradition. An ensemble comprised of improvisers, composers, and musical seekers, Gnostikos works to achieve a widening of musical and artistic pathways.

Doors at 9. 18+ $5
