Eris 136199: Han-earl Park/Catherine Sikora/Nick Didkovsky
“A beautiful noise.” — KFJC 89.7 FM
“In a field of experimentation and free music, Eris 136199 stands as singular.” — The New York City Jazz Record
The group Eris 136199 was formed in New York in 2012 and is the quick-reacting cyborg virtuosity of Han-earl Park (Sirene 1009), the mighty melodic imagination and big tenor sound of Catherine Sikora (Clockwork Mercury), and the diamond-cut precision and grind-meets-experimentalism of Nick Didkovsky (Doctor Nerve).
Eris 136199 released their second album in 2018: the eponymous Eris 136199 (BAF001, 2018), funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign. The followup to their debut Anomic Aphasia (SLAMCD 559, 2015), the album captures the trio during the 2017 European tour. In August 2019, Eris 136199 will again tour Europe, performing at Jazz em Agosto, Lisbon, and elsewhere.
