Welcome back to the Six Foot Love series at The Wild Detectives. A series of live outdoor performances with numbered seats and limited capacity.

A stellar trio meeting with trajectories traveling from Honolulu, Brooklyn, and Austin, for a brief southern tour. Ackerly was born in Canada, then sharpened their guitar hybrid skills for many years in New York, and nowadays is based in Hawai’i. Wallace is a unique pianist whose practice is informed by his vast experience in classical, jazz, and improvisation contexts in NYC. Carver has been pushing the boundaries of percussion through a perennial opening approach to music-making ever since moving to Austin to drum in Roky Erickson’s band some decades ago.


“As a guitarist and musician, I strive to achieve an auditory dialogue between the bounds of sound quantifying music and its navigation through an emotive landscape of one’s personal experience. I pursue concepts of transcendence above convention, inward contemplation of outer experience, and the struggle of defining one’s authentic-self by disarming projected roles of patriarchal society. By exploring these spheres, I continually develop a hybrid musical language with my instrument; drawing on the influences of Black American Music and avant-garde improvisers, as well as the culture of the thriving New York City rock and noise scenes. This language is expressed across intuitive and designful musical situations, either as a collaborator or soloist. Through the guitar, I continually explore the degrees of separation between natural sound and treated amplification, as well as acoustical noise and conventional melody. Through performance, I attempt to create musical structure between intuition and preconception; engaging listeners through the dualism of spontaneity and composition with each unique encounter I present them.”

During the past decade, Jessica Ackerley has established themselves on the Canadian and American music scenes as a unique and versatile guitarist, composer, and improviser. Born in Alberta, Canada, Jessica now resides in Honolulu after almost a decade of being located in New York City. They have worked alongside notable musicians such as Tyshawn Sorey, Daniel Carter, Marc Edwards, Luke Stewart, Patrick Shiroishi, and Jason Nazary, to name a few. Jessica is a current doctoral candidate in composition at University of Hawai’i.


Pianist, improviser, and composer who resides in Brooklyn, NY, leading his own projects, collaborating with other like-minded artists, and co-curating the interdisciplinary performance series Invocation with Drew Wesely. His work as a pianist displays his vast milieu of experiences from classical, jazz, free improvisation studies, and extensive piano preparation, while his compositions employ notational strategies to broaden the manner in which sounds are created and the ways in which musicians interact. Over the past decade, he has appeared on dozens of albums and has performed at such esteemed venues as The Stone, New York, NY, Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago, IL, and the Outsound New Music Summit, San Francisco, CA.


Using amplified/acoustic percussion and strings, she locates resonant frequencies in space to create oscillating overtones, which are then employed as sound sources for live improvisation. She also plays drums and percussion. She has improvised live with Jandek, Eugene Chadbourne, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, Faust, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, Claire Rousay, Alex Cunningham, Damon Smith, Raquel Bell, Tom Carter, Sandy Ewen, Thor Harris, Jonathan Horne, Steve McKay, Rat Bastard, and others.

Lisa has turned her attention recently to making instruments and then learning how to play them. In 2018 she was commissioned by Cloud Tree Gallery in Austin, to create an installation that became a joint effort with artist Brian Johnson. Entitled “Thee Mortal Coil”, the sound sculpture consisted of a 20-foot tall spiral tube that incorporated ball bearings with timed bursts of pneumatic pressure, amplified by contact microphones routed through a mixer.
