Scurvy is a New York-based group lead by composer and saxophonist Johnny Butler. Formed in 2007, Scurvy’s music is a mixture of angular melodies, interlocking rhythms, and unrestrained improv couched in progressive instrumental rock. Infinitely dynamic, and wildly inventive, the sum result is a swath of interlocking rhythms and otherworldly textures.

CARL TESTA (born 1984, Chicago, IL) is a composer and instrumentalist based in New Haven, CT and New York City. Originally from Chicago, Testa studied music with Donn DeSanto, at the U of C Lab School, as well as at the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) School of Music, Anthony Braxton, Neely Bruce, Alvin Lucier, Ron Kuivila, Roy Wiseman, Jay Hoggard, and Charles Lemert. In October 2008, he released his debut album Uncertainty featuring his compositions for clarinets, percussion, and electronics. Please visit for more information.

STATIC is a long-form extended composition for 2 guitars, bass clarinet, and electronics composed by Carl Testa. This piece combines chamber music with ambient electronic music and live real-time sampling/electronic manipulation of the instruments. The piece uses a series of cues in order to structure the interpretation of the notated material. Each player has 3 pages of notated material. As the piece progesses the players are instructed to either play the notated material straight through, repeat short cells of material, or improvise with the melodic and rhythmic material from the page. A backdrop of electronics mixes the sounds of static, fire, appliances, and live samples of the instruments.

Aaron Siegel is a composer and percussionist who writes experimental music that lies at the intersection of abstraction and intuition. He produces concert events and recordings involving his own music and collaborations with other members of the experimental arts community. His work ranges from solo compositions and chamber music to improvised ensembles and collaborative theater pieces.

Zach Mangan Presents:

Secret architecure: Hailing from New York City (USA) and Perth (Scotland), secret architecture is the brainchild of saxophonist fraser Campbell and drummer zach mangan. These two core members combine with a rotating list of talented musicians to create modern, creative improvised music. Their fiery debut ‘come on shapes” has been applauded as a forceful and energetic statement. Equal parts ornette coleman and eric satie, this music turns on a dime from up tempo mayhem to delicate, crooning lullabies.

Austin bats: Austin bats was created when craig Brodhead, (guitarist, singer, tinkerer, sound designer etc.) united with friends blaze mckenzie on bass and nick DaGastino on drums. A trio with a monumental sound that has been known to melt objects too close to the stage.

Killer Bob: New york jazz rockers Killer Bob focus on original music as well as long form group improvisations. Recently back from a Midwest tour, see them while they’re hot.
