NEW MUSIC / SOUND STRUCTURES SERIES – FREE

Vavatican: (pROM nIGHT rECORDS) Brooklyn. New Music group exploring the potential of timbre and form by use of extended technique, graphic notation and intuition, composing music that is a finely tuned amalgamation of improvisation and structure. The group’s compositional aesthetics has been described as reminiscent of the efforts of Morton Feldman and early AACM.

Superlith:
(from Something Else! by S. Victor Aaron)
“Just when you think you’ve heard it all — literally — some really crafty cats come along and create sounds that hadn’t quite been previously contemplated. A couple of such musicians from Philadelphia’s fertile experimental music scene banded together to create some of this alien but strangely alluring noise. Trombonist Dan Blacksberg (Anthony Braxton Quartet, Archer Spade duo with Nick Millevoi) and transmuted Casio keyboard technician Julius Masri (Electric Simcha, Avant rock band LionsHead, Noise duo Chakra Khan/Air Pirates with Millevoi) pooled their vast experience working on the fringes of music to form a New Music duo called Superlith and recently came out with their first album, Plasma Cluster. (Public Eyesore/Eh? Records)
Each of these players brings a unique perspective to the table. Masri is a trained jazz drummer whose curiosity about electronic sounds became a passion that’s led him to compose electronic music for choreography projects. For his part, Blacksberg sees no bounds in the sonorous possibilities of the trombone; he’s a superb technician who wants to go beyond merely doing what’s been done before and push the trombone into unfamiliar territory. On Plasma Cluster, he exploits the openings he sees to do so within the realm of electronic avant garde, and finds the complements to the buzzes, drones and chiming of Masri’s circuit-bent machinery.”

MPSP
MPSP is Mark Price and Sebastian Petsu, sonicists who align their broken and unorthodox techniques embarking on frenzied, derailed, and blasted-out joy rides through house, hiphop, metal, dub, and American noise. Mark Price solos as the enigmatic and genuinely unpredictable Cars Will Burn. Described as a methodical dissection of Top 40 hip-hop club bangers that are at once scummy and decadent. Ultimately saying “yes, but…” to the world in the finest sampler abuse tradition. For Sebastian Petsu, live manipulations of cassettes and cassette players form the core of his sound art process. Sebastian began re-purposing and layering found tapes with the Rain of Belle Isle duo. In current collaborations he now utilizes an unfair amount of controlled, textured tape deck feedback.
