Blackout Over Rio is a powerhouse of Edmonton based musicians from the Jazz,
Contemporary Classical, Free Improvisation, and Noise scenes. Multi-instrumentalist
Will Northlich-Redmond has released over a dozen albums as BlipVert, toured Europe
and North America, and performed with the likes of Eyvind Kang and Marilyn Crispell. A
master of interpretation, Allison Balcetis is an internationally recognized contemporary
saxophonist whose work has produced over 70 world premieres. Award winning
composer Nico Arnaez is the electronic mastermind in the band, shattering the sound of
the bass into millions of tiny fragments. Drummer Mark Segger studied with jazz icon
Terry Clarke and has performed with Dave Burrell, Lina Allemano, Steve Swell, and Nate
Wooley among many others across North America and Europe. Blackout Over Rio has
been featured at the Edmonton Noise Fest, BEAMS, New Music Edmonton, the Yardbird
Suite, Toronto’s Somewhere There Series and the Emmet Ray.
