Christian Pincock in Albuquerque

From the Spectre Series:

Christian Pincock performs improvised and composed music on valve trombone and a computer-based instrument of his own creation with MAX/MSP. Using a keyboard controller and a system of sensors attached to his trombone he is able to control sampled sounds and integrate them expressively and musically. His work is both dynamic and subtle, drawing from diverse styles such as improvised experimental music, contemporary classical, avant-garde jazz, noise, and electronica.

He has performed internationally in events such as the 9th, 10th and 11th Soundpainting Think-tank in Woodstock, Sweden, and France, the Music Omi International Arts Residency in 2007, the Banff Workshop for Jazz and Creative Music in Banff, Canada in 2006, as well as venues such as The Stone (NYC), Roulette (NYC), Le Petit Faucheux (Tours, FR).

Interview with Ars Nova Founder

More evidence that live avant music is becoming more common, at least in big cities. The founder of Philly’s Ars Nova Workshop is interviewed on his series’ apparent artistic success.

Christman founded Ars Nova Workshop in 2000. The nonprofit group organizes performances of old and new experimental music. In the coming months, he’ll be creating a record label to get the performances from the past decade out to the wider world of jazz lovers. Tonight, a full house has assembled at World Café Live to hear the music of Julius Hemphill. Hemphill created some cutting edge experimental music in the 1970s and 80s.

Jazz, avant garde, progressive or experimental music, whatever you call it, it’s not for everybody, though there are plenty of people in Philadelphia interested in listening to and playing this music. Starting in intimate venues nine years ago, Ars Nova has moved to spaces that can accommodate up to 400 people. And that activity is reverberating among artists, with more creative collaborations springing up.

Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Hoor Paar Kraat – A Whisper In The Sow’s Ear
This 3 inch cd finds surreal sound smiths Hoor Paar Kraat in a more horror filled droney, ritual, hypnotic and mainly field recording stripped mind set. With the 3 pieces on offer here concentrating on sinister manipulated gong, feed back and singing bowl tones.

Alex TiuniaevI Knew Her
I knew her is one long gracefully, majestic and building 40 minute track that mixers together soundtrack string soar, electronics, synthetic choir elements, ect

Various Artists – Zelphabet Vol E
This is the 5th letter volume compilation from the Zelphabet label this time as the title suggests taking in artists beginning with the letter E. We have five tracks on offer here one from each of Ed Osborn, Elliott Sharpe, Emil Beaulieau & Evil Moisture.
