Radical 2 (Levy Lorenzo and Dennis Sullivan) is a performance duo based in Brooklyn, New York. Grounded in the tradition of contemporary classical percussion, Radical 2 extends this performance practice by exploring compositions that use theatrical vocal techniques and prototype electronics. By integrating the human voice via extended techniques and oddly contextualized speech, Radical 2 is actively blurring the lines between their vocal chords and percussion instruments. While also making use of physical theater, their performances range from whimsical and witty, to somber and nebulous, to farcical and just plain absurd. With electronics, Radial 2 uses newly designed instruments that allow the use of live electronics into their performances which provide strong engagement between the audience and the electronic sound worlds. Radical 2 extends the role of classical percussionists into actors and electronic musicians, yet still relying on the percussionist’s sense of extended techniques and new music performance practice. The March 5th program will include a world premiere by Dennis Sullivan, along side a piece for eight electric toothbrushes commissioned by online media company, Gawker, as well as works by Rick Burkhardt, Mark Applebaum and Radical 2.
