Non Credo is the Los Angeles based duo of multi-instrumentalists/composers Joseph Berardi and Kira Vollman. Primarily a percussionist and vocalist, respectively, their musical palette with Non Credo extends well beyond the scope of their primary instruments. Clarinets, marimbas, accordions, cellos, broken down keyboards, cheap electronics, altered children’s toys and anything else that falls into their path are utilized. Nothing is sacred, nothing is wasted. Kira’s voice displays a remarkable range, both tonally and emotionally, and their musical landscape is equally far-reaching. Their enchanting songs and evocative moods draw from all styles and eras of music, from contemporary experimental forms to Saturday morning cartoons, to film scores to pygmy war chants. But they can be equally excited by a page from Edward Gorey, a B movie full of smoke and fog, a twisted Bruegel landscape or an overheard conversation in a late-night diner. From gothic thriller to film noir haze to disturbed fairy tale, their audience is led on a journey with many detours and dark alleys along the way. Colorful characters inhabit their world, telling tales of the mundane elements of everyday life… greed, lust, hatred and crippling fear. You are never sure where this journey will lead, but be prepared to get seasick, be beaten up, thrown in jail, fall in love, contract an STD, have your heart broken, your wallet stolen, get shanghaied, hog tied and crucified.
