HUGE STATUE OF JESUS is an Oakland-based improvisation collective. The sub-units are connected by interests in ecstatic performance, body/out-of-body experiences, sonic hilarity, and the transformative powers of an emotionalism grounded in sound structure.

Adam Adhiyatma is a guitarist/clarinetist/composer/improviser from Singapore. Currently based out of Oakland CA, he pursues a mystical (empirical) understanding of sound and the enactment of polyvocal quiddities. He is interested in improvisation as procedural music, sound meditation, healing, social corrective and catharsis.
Alex Cohen is a Composer, Performer and Educator currently based out of Oakland, CA. Since 2007, he has been performing nationwide with the group Organ Yank. Alex seeks to escape the oppression of genre based thinking while promoting the spirituality inherent in the act of performance. He is currently pursuing an MA in Composition at Mills College.
Kim Nucci (composer/visual artist/woodwinds) exists somewhere in the space time continuum creating sound like objects on woodwind instruments. She likes working to simultaneously translate and obfuscate ideas of color, texture, timbre, architecture and emotion through various media. She also likes painting things that are significantly larger than her person with sound as well as actual paint.

Collette McCaslin and Sheila Bosco are a duo of intertwining interest in free jazz, electronic music and various visual modes of communication. They integrate noise with an aesthetic of psychedelia, and cut-up sampling along with improvisation.
