New York Philharmonic as Junkyard Players

From NYTimes.com:

Christopher Lamb, is the principal percussionist of the New York Philharmonic, and on this hot day late last month he joined colleagues from the orchestra and the composer Magnus Lindberg at a junkyard in Staten Island in a search for pieces of metal to play this week at performances of Mr. Lindberg’s “Kraft.” The work is a giant complicated yawp for orchestra, amplified solo instruments and percussion — plenty of percussion. The soloists, including a cellist, a clarinetist and a pianist, are also drafted into playing the percussion instruments, many spread around the hall.

Dominic Duval Interview

Trio X

From All About Jazz:

Bassist Dominic Duval is a mystery to many—even to those interested in free music. Seemingly emerging out of nowhere in the mid-1990s, over the course of 15 years he has built a formidable discography, firmly establishing him as one of the most original and prolific bassists alive today. His career is well-documented on more than one hundred recordings, including collaborations with Cecil Taylor, Joe McPhee, Mark Whitecage, Ivo Perelman, Jimmy Halperin, and many others. Duval’s solo recording, Nightbird Invention (Cadence, 1997), added new colors to the sonic palette of double-bass, while his work for string quartet erases the thin border between modern jazz and chamber music.
