FUTURE DEATH TOLL is a throbbing mess of noise that eatz technology and shitz performance art. Forged from the figurative beauty that dance and movement provides, FUTURE DEATH TOLL introduces movement, light, sound, rope, markers, fire, haircuts, phone calls, and flags as a metaphorical stand-in for issues like mortality, death, diseases, prison as a corporation, intellectual property rights, bdsm, and subjective destitution.
Jonathan Wood Vincent has played music since the old days when his father would submerge beautiful flowers into steaming liquid nitrogen. Early on, it was apparent that making art was utterly impossible. Despite this, he has played, recorded and toured as a pianist, accordionist, singer, actor, dancer, and other things with lots of musicians and artists. These include Masashi Harada who conducts bands by flapping his hands in faces around a recording studio with chains and ribbons and Katt Hernandez and Tatsuya Nakatani, free improvisers who reinvent their instruments every day, and Zack Fuller, post Mortem neolicious scary dancer, and post Torah folk rockers Girls in Trouble, and mainstream alt country singer songwriter Eileen Rose, and a multilingual stripper rap band called Un Cuerpo Exquisito, etc., etc. He has recorded on Emanem, Sony, Kimshee, J-Dub, Stone Quarry, Generate Records, etc. His newest project of complex yet tragically familiar piano songs connects the imbroglios between all of these projects to gently pierce your solicitous hearts.
