Iconoclast

ICONOCLAST is a duo from New York City comprised of Julie Joslyn (alto saxophone, live electronics, violin, vocals) and Leo Ciesa (drums, percussion, keyboards, vocals). Ciesa and Joslyn have been composing and performing together since the beginning of 1987 and have developed a bold and distinctive sound. ICONOCLAST's music and performance is known for its intensity, physicality and “larger than duo” impact. Acoustic and electronic sounds exist side by side as the music moves between improvisation and composition without stylistic limitation.

ICONOCLAST has performed extensively throughout the United States, Canada and Europe
