Tim Feeney and Vic Rawlings have performed together as a duo since meeting within Boston’s “lowercase” improvising community in 2005. Their music explores an unpredictable relationship with making sounds, achieved by elaborate preparation and extension of acoustic soundboxes, such as drums or cello, and expanded via original electronic instruments, ranging from naked circuitboards to amplified kitchen objects. Casey Anderson is an artist working in a number of media, including composition, improvisation, electronic music, saxophone, text, and installations.

From the Uncertainty Music Series:
The Uncertainty Music Series presents the Broadcloth trio and Joint Raker in a new bi-weekly series at Elm Bar
Wednesday November 2nd 2011 at 9pm
Elm Bar, 372 Elm Street, New Haven, CT, $3 cover.
On Wednesday November 2nd, the Uncertainty Music Series will present the Broadcloth trio and Joint Raker in the inaugural concert of the bi-weekly Uncertainty Music Series at Elm Bar. The Uncertainty Music Series is pleased begin an expanded series in a new venue. Broadcloth is a collaborative trio featuring vocalist Anne Rhodes, accordionist Adam Matlock, and cellist Nathan Bontrager. Broadcloth have over the past 2 years developed a unique approach to improvised music navigating free improvisation, graphic scores, fully notated pieces, and traditional American music. Joint Raker is guitarist Chris Cretella and trumpeter Nigel Taylor. They combine composition and improvisation to explore a diverse sound world. Both Broadcloth and Joint Raker are examples of the local improvised music scene in New Haven. The Uncertainty Music Series is pleased to present them in the series’ first concert at Elm Bar.
Broadcloth performs improvised music with a nod to various compositional outlets. Using a unique instrumentation of voice, cello and accordion/recorders, the trio plays from notated, graphic, embroidered, and textual scores in addition to completely spontaneous pieces. Without shying away from virtuosity, Broadcloth creates music that reflects the order of composition and the risk of unpredictable musical interactions. Emphasis lies on establishing a holistic sound that favors cooperation over hierarchy.
Both members of Joint Raker have spent a great deal of time in the masonry business; Nigel more so than Chris. Some would say that the shared experience of having had one’s fingertips dissolve as a result of the more caustic nature of cement informs the music of Joint Raker. Some would say this has absolutely nothing to do with the music at all.
