"El Vivo is the home recording project of Jonathan Wood Vincent recording his home. This is inside a tall building, where workers have carved out cavernous rooms for one hundred years of people who still vainly wipe away the stains of labor. This is where people have spent their whole lives working to spread their dreams on the bodies of useful people loved, ignored, and forgotten. This building is in a book. There is so much construction outside. There is a beautiful and vast park nearby, and a huge river. It's a dream, and it almost works, and this is so little of what comes from here."
Jonathan Wood Vincent has played music since the old days when his father would submerge beautiful flowers into steaming liquid nitrogen.Early on, it was apparent that making art was utterly impossible. Despite this, he has played, recorded and toured as a pianist, accordionist, singer, actor, dancer, and other things with lots of musicians and artists. These include Masashi Harada who conducts bands by flapping his hands in faces around a recording studio with chains and ribbons and Katt Hernandez and Tatsuya Nakatani, free improvisers who reinvent their instruments every day, and Zack Fuller, post Mortem neolicious scary dancer, and post Torah folk rockers Girls in Trouble, and mainstream alt country singer songwriter Eileen Rose, and a multilingual stripper rap band called Un Cuerpo Exquisito, etc., etc.
He has recorded on Emanem, Sony, Kimshee, J-Dub, Stone Quarry, Generate Records, etc.
