DUANE PITRE>>> Brooklyn-based, avant-garde composer and performer. Friday’s performance will feature a rare solo appearance from this composer — who used to skateboard professionally for Alien Workshop — who typically collaborates in large ensemble formats. His current works explore both chaos and discipline, and the relationship that exists between the two. Pitre primarily works with long-tones and utilizes alternate tuning schemes that focus on microtonality, enabling him to explore unaccustomed harmonic intervallic relationships.

Pitre has presented his works in NYC at such spaces as Roulette, The Stone, and ISSUE Project Room (where he was the Spring 2009 Artist in Residence). He has shared bills with artists such as Marc Ribot, Tony Conrad, Audrey Chen, Sean Meehan, and James Blackshaw. Pitre has releases on Important Records, Trome Records, Quiet Design, NNA, etc. He’s appeared on compilations with artists such as Keith Rowe, Sir Richard Bishop, Tetuzi Akiyama, and Jandek; and he has appeared on soundtracks with Dinosaur Jr., J Mascis, and Animal Collective.
