Artists Space and Blank Forms present pioneer composer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Annette Peacock in concert this month in Brooklyn. An associate of Ram Dass, Paul Bley, and Robert Moog, she was the first to use the Moog Synthesizer for vocal processing.
Peacock’s last public performance in the city was at the Whitney in 2013.
“Peacock struck out on her own with I’M THE ONE, her 1972 solo debut, a cult classic marked by free-flowing, rock, R&B and pop-influenced jazz with Peacock’s dynamic vocals. Equal parts moving and disquieting, I’M THE ONE—praised by such artists as David Bowie and Brian Eno—stands among the most adventurous artistic statements released by a major label, and established Peacock as a force in not only jazz, but the broader category of pop music as well.
“Pushing her sound further and further in the ensuing years, Peacock would collaborate with a diverse slate of artists including Salvador Dalí, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Robert Wyatt, Mick Ronson, Coldcut, Bill Bruford, and Alan Holdsworth among many others.”*
