Please join us at Rhizome on June 15th as percussionist William Hooker, the genre-bending free jazz legend, will improvise a live soundtrack to the Japanese avant-garde cinema masterpiece "A Page of Madness".

William Hooker is an artistic whole, a vast circle of vision and execution. A body of uninterrupted work beginning in the mid-seventies defines him as one of the most important composers and players in jazz. As bandleader, Hooker has fielded ensembles in an incredibly diverse array of configurations. Each collaboration has brought a serious investigation of his compositional agenda and the science of the modern drum kit. As a player, Hooker has long been known for… the persuasive power of his relationship with his instrument. His work is frequently grounded in a narrative context. Whether set against a silent film or anchored by a poetic theme, Hooker brings dramatic tension and human warmth to avant-garde jazz.

A Page of Madness is a masterpiece of Japanese avant-garde cinema. A nightmarish fantasy that threatens to overwhelm its audience, its searing, fevered imagery bombards you from the opening minutes and in an unrelenting wave of bravura filmmaking and refuses to stop until the closing credits. Made in 1926, but thought lost until an incomplete print resurfaced in the early ‘70s, Teinosuke Kinugasa’s surrealist classic is one of the most startling and expressive films of the silent era.
