Christopher Icasiano



Chris Icasiano's drumming harnesses shocking power and does strange things to your perception of time and space.
-Dave Segal, The Stranger

Christopher Icasiano is a Filipino-American percussionist and composer. He grew up in Redmond, WA and has been playing drums since he was eight years old. While studying jazz at the University of Washington, Icasiano developed an interest in free-improvisation, experimental and avant-garde music, which has informed his musical approach ever since. His influences include 90's R&B, hip-hop, contemporary classical, folk, metal and noise, and his music finds intersections between the experimental and the mainstream. He tours internationally with his drum-sax duo Bad Luck, several folk and pop bands, and as a solo artist.

As a curator, Icasiano creates mind-expanding experiences featuring unconventional music in club environments. He co-founded and co-organizes the Racer Sessions, a weekly Seattle free-improvisation jam session and performance series, and the grassroots arts organization Table & Chairs. His chicken adobo is delicious, he has run three marathons, and his current karaoke song is Luther Vandross' "So Amazing."
