Chris Powell

Christopher Powell (aka Pow Pow, aka PayPow, aka Powserati) is a self-taught rhythm scholar, producer, and beat-maker living in Philadelphia, PA.  As a main contributor in the Philadelphia art and sound collective Need New Body, which fused improvisation with popular song structures, Powell began a career of international recording and performance, creating music at the nexus of art and entertainment. Since 1999, he has collaborated, recorded, and toured worldwide with a diverse spectrum of artists and musicians, including the Sun Ra Arkestra, Yoko Ono, and the Boredoms.  Powell’s work in the eclectic and high energy Philadelphia band Man Man (ANTI- Records) has helped focus his talent as a leader in the live performance context.  Together with Griffin Rodriguez, Powell explores popular music based on jazz and non-Western rhythms as the Los Angeles production duo Icy Demons.  His latest projects include Adventuredrum, a conceptually-based performance Powell composes for an ensemble of drummers, Spaceship Aloha, a solo project mixing improvised electronics, beats, acoustic percussion and synthesizers, GRANT$, a hip hop duo with NYC artist Tim Fite, and Mash Up Body, a collaboration with avant-garde choreographer Kate Watson-Wallace.
