Yins – ‘After Party’
Active vibrations inherent in a disappearing resonance.
Repetition and momentum coalesce and decompose.
Everything becomes a clue toward nothing.
These are memories of the memory of the after party.
Jeff Kimmel/Ryan Packard – ‘Contrast Shifting’
A convergence of clarinet, percussion and electronics in a session of improvisations between two long-time collaborators. An attention to subtleties, at times serene and atmospheric, or pointillistic and playful.
Grein – ‘Taxic Gnosis’
Grein is a collaborative project between Aaron Michael Smith & Jay Rauch, multi-instrumentalists collaborating over a distance, living in Boston and Seattle respectively. Their work explores geological structures of time that form and coalesce through iterative improvisation. TAXIC GNOSIS stretches the soloist between immediate physicality and mediate consciousness. ˛ˇˇ˛ˇˇ˛ˇˇ˛ˇˇ˛ˇˇ˛ˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇˇ An ear becomes a room becomes a playback machine, listening for its own death, the sound of subjectivity ++,,..002222332200//2233//11//.. ……,,))!!”””**((&&##”” dissolve self into multiplicity;;
