Chris Cochrane and the Natalie Merchants: Performance

Chris Cochrane and the Natalie Merchants is Chris Cochrane, Mike Duclos, and Hanna Fox. Chris Cochrane is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, improvisator and producer. He has performed regularly in bands and improvised with hundreds of players. In addition to his rare solo recordings, he co-founded (with harpist Zeena Parkins) the groundbreaking experimental prog unit No Safety. He is the composer of the music for THEM, a dance-performance piece which was recently produced in residency at the New Museum in collaboration with Ishmael Houston-Jones and Dennis Cooper.

“Cochrane’s jagged guitar playing is fully committed and fully his own. At this show, he was burning and shrieking with a band that drove alongside him and toward your gullet, and made you wonder why anyone ever needed more than trio to make a point.” —Eszter Balint, “The Best of Music 2010,” Artforum
