Volcano Insurance in Madison

Posted: October 31, 2011 by Mike in Performances

From Surrounded by Reality Music:

7:30 (doors)
$7 at the door

Luke Polipnick – guitar/compositions
Chris Bates – double/electric basses
Joey Van Phillips – drums/percussion

Avant rock-jazz trio Volcano Insurance makes their return to Madison this Friday, bringing with them a new set of music composed by SBR veteran Luke Polipnick. This band has become the stuff of legend in the Twin Cities, performing infrequently enough to garner serious attention from the jazz cognoscenti at their rare live appearances. This year marks their fifth year as a working band, and their sound has distilled down from an “everything goes” compositional approach, to an ear-bending punk jazz aesthetic.

Event description

* About Barash-Kelly – Maoz Trio: Hailing from USA and Isreal, via New York City, Kelly, Maoz and Barash delve into experimental keyboards, guitar and electronic sounds to create an exciting and inventive whole.
Extreme and angular moments, ambient soundscapes, composed melodies, and wild improvisations form the backdrop for the band’s mystery-drenched and electrifying sounds. It’s a unique musical entity that oddly contradicts itself, harsh yet organic, busy yet sparse.

Daniel Kelly – keyboards and toys
Eyal Maoz – guitar
Guy Barash – computer sound manipulation

* Yoni Krezmer is one of the top and most original saxophonists and composers of new jazz in New York City. His ensembles features impressive downtown New York luminaries such as Daniel Levin (cello), Andrew Drury (drums) and Eyal Maoz (guitar).
