[CFE#64] The Avens – ‘In Memoriam Robert Ashley/Improv #2’ C30 $7
“In Memoriam Robert Ashley/Improv #2” is the debut recording from the Avens, a new group from Canadian composer Allison Cameron alongside percussionist D’Arcy Gray and cellist Norm Adams. The A-side features a performance of Cameron’s composition “In Memoriam Robert Ashley,” a slow moving, chirping and vibrating tribute to the great electro-opera composer, while the B-side finds the trio in a crackly, looping improvisation. In an edition of 100 copies held in a hand-assembled cardstock tray/box with four inserts and a digital download code.

[CFE#68] Rob Noyes & Ryan Lee Crosby – ‘Modal Improvisations on 34 Strings’ C40 $7
“Modal Improvisations on 34 Strings” is the debut release from the duo of 12-string guitarist Rob Noyes and chaturangi player Ryan Lee Crosby. Across these three improvisations the duo draw from Indian classical music, American guitar-soli and jazz, and contemporary avant improvisation to create works that are timeless, placeless and yet familiar in the comforting way a bending string or the rattling of hollow wood can be. In an edition of 100 copies held in a hand-assembled cardstock tray/box with four inserts and a digital download code.

[CFE#69] Lake Mary & Talk West C27 $7
“Lake Mary & Talk West” is the debut recording from the duo of guitarists Lake Mary (Chaz Prymek) and Talk West (Dylan Golden Aycock). These improvisational pieces were recorded in Tulsa, OK after the two toured the US east coast in October 2016. They’ve got a comfortable understanding of each others playing, neither pushing the other away or stepping on toes. Relaxing in the glow of their travels and time spent listening to each other, they’re able to meld their sounds beautifully. New folk music in the truest sense. In an edition of 100 copies held in a hand-assembled cardstock tray/box with four inserts and a digital download code.
