Caspar Sonnet (lap-steel dobro) Kozue Matsumoto (koto) is an acoustic experimental, improvisational duo based in Los Angeles, California. Both artists employ numerous extended techniques exploring an array of interesting sounds and textures using both modern & early eastern/western folk instruments. Their collaborations are fiercely intensive, concentrated duals where both players utilize prepared strategies composed in set time blocks. Each player is then assigned a specific set of tools to manipulate various parts of the instrument and are assigned set tunings, microtonal or otherwise. Their use of instrumental augmentation, movement and presence are captivating to witness and mesmerizing to hear. Matsumoto/Sonnet are anticipating a record release entitled “Versus” on Sounds et all late August 2018.
Music at Washington Street presents a great night of improvised music with Steve Norton / Tom Plsek duo, a solo set by Mr. Dirky, and the trio In Transit (Kozue Matsumoto, koto; Patrick Behnke, viola; Chris Foss, shakuhachi + bassoon) from LA.

MA is a duo whose rich and emotive music is centered upon two asian instruments: the Chinese pipa and the Japanese koto. Jie Ma and Kozue Matsumoto, originally from China and Japan, draw upon the traditional musical influences of their respective motherlands alongside decades of performance in North America and Europe. These diverse points of reference converge to form MA’s unique sound, which floats between the ancient and the modern. Taking inspiration from early training that blended traditional Asian composition with Western ideas, MA’s musical spectrum is constantly developing.
