8/19 Secret Drum Band

Saturday, August 19th
Duck Club Presents
Secret Drum Band with guests



Secret Drum Band is a percussion and noise ensemble from Portland, OR. Lisa Schonberg started SDB in 2006 in Olympia, WA. Her dreamy yet precise compositions, often based on the soundscapes of specific ecological sites, contrast with the pulsing momentum of pieces co-written with Allan Wilson and Heather Treadway. SDB employs drums, synthesizers, stringed instruments and field recordings to evoke daydreams of bright colors, dynamic movements, and wild places. SDB’s lineup includes Allan Wilson (ex-!!!), Lisa Schonberg (ex-Explode into Colors), Sara Lund (unwound/Nocturnal Habits), Pieter Hilton (Typhoon), Anthony Brisson (Psychomagic), and noise musician Marcus Fischer. DYNAMICS features performances by Heather Treadway (ex-Explode into Colors), Sam Humans (Orquestra Pacifico Tropical), Alison Clarys (Tiburones), Eddie Bond (Psychomagic), Marisa Anderson, Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox Through Water), Jose Medeles (1939 Ensemble), and Aaron Hartman (Old Time Relijun/Girls in Trouble). SDB has performed in various manifestations all over the U.S. West Coast, including performances at Disjecta, The Quiet Music Festival, The Improvisation Summit of Portland, Henry Gallery at UW Seattle, The Ace Hotel, MOCA Tucson, PMOMA’s Houseguest residency, and events for Tom Tom Magazine, High Desert Test Sites and ESP TV. Schonberg has played with Tara Jane Oneil, John Colpitts, John Niekrasz, Neal Morgan, Tuneyards, Erase Errata, Mirah, and Thao & the Get Down Stay Down, and has commissioned work for filmmaker Vanessa Renwick and a 19-drummer performance in New York City.
