Niki Johnson & Mary Rapp

Ms Kitteridge & Bok Choy is a new jazz and experimental music series in an unlikely space adding to the music scene of Dulwich Hill with a theatrical edge.

Niki Johnson’s solo set explores a simple and broad theme of ‘resonance’ through composition and improvisation for percussion instruments such as vibraphone, glass bowls and marbles. These musical pieces aim to pair and repair different long sounds and humming rhythms. This provides a space to explore the feeling of having tiny metal earworms dancing in the eardrums, or perhaps having the heart strings stretched to the limits.

Niki Johnson is a percussionist and composer-performer whose experimental musical practice incorporates interdisciplinary collaboration, improvisation, contemporary classical repertoire, and performance art.

Mary Rapp has a perpetual curiosity that has led her to investigate jazz, classical, experimental and Korean traditional music. Her interests and musical goals lie in notions of digging deep into the body, movement led technique and noisy catharsis. She plays cello, double bass and sings.
