Jami is a performer that makes transformation appear simple, taking a traditionally classical instrument and morphing it into the source of a multi-dimensional range of expressive works. In the 28 years since she began performing professionally, Jami has always done something unique – employing electronics and looping techniques to create sounds never before associated with the cello. Jami’s musical path moved from classical to folk, to rock/pop where within her popular band, “Rumors of the Big Wave”, she garnered the coveted Northwest Area Music Association (NAMA) Award for Best Rock Instrumentalist. Since launching her solo career Sieber has entered into dynamic collaborations with an extraordinary spectrum of dancers, actors, poets, visual artists, improvisers, vocalists, and instrumentalists that span the globe. Her compositions have been used for film, (Queen of the Sun, Climb Against the Odds, Jews and Buddism, Hope is the Thing with Feathers) theatre, (Orpheus, TS Crossing) and the popular video game – Braid. She and Esther Edelman will their join their skills and arts in performance on the evening of April 3 at Hale’s Palladium. We warmly welcome her to the Moisture Festival 2011.
