Cup is the duo of two distinct artists brought together by both music and marriage: multi-instrumentalist Yuka C Honda and Nels Cline. A group that rarely performs in New York, Cup surfaces for a special Valentine’s Day performance that blends their voices, instruments, and electronic mastery.
Honda brings her personal approach to electronic sound accrued from many years of work in Downtown New York and beyond, while Cline brings his singular effects-laden, looped electric guitar stylings to the sonic banquet that is Cup. While in some ways experimental and genre-bending, Cup’s music balances the exploratory with the accessible. Never compromised is their signature purity of sound, an unmistakable experience only associated with artists of this caliber.
Cup’s first recording, “Every Moment”, will emerge later this year.
