KLANG’s Debut CD, Tea Music, Coming August 25th

From Improvised Communications:

Chicago-based clarinetist/composer James Falzone is proud to announce the August 25th release of Tea Music (Allos Documents 003), the debut studio recording of his three year-old working quartet, KLANG, featuring vibraphonist Jason Adasiewicz, bassist Jason Roebke and drummer Tim Daisy. All four members compose for the group, which picks up the swing era thread of pairing clarinet and vibes, while also exploring its collective interest in the innovative sounds of Jimmy Giuffre’s early small groups of the mid-1950’s.

Michael Doneda

Kai Fageshinski | clarinet, composition
Michael Theilke | clarinet, composition
Kai Fageshinski (Los Glissandinos, The Magic I.D., etc.) and Michael Theilke (Unununium, The Magic I.D., etc.) are members of Berlin’s vibrant echtzeitmusik scene. The International Nothing (*2000) is their hardest working project of the last years. They are working exclusively on compositions (no improv), where both instruments melt into one sound, which sometimes sounds like more than two instruments through the extended use of multiphonics and difference tones. Their pieces have a delicate and slowed down quality and celebrate a unique and timeless beauty. They will present a collection of pieces developed between 2003 and 2009.

The International Nothing is kindly supported by Goethe-Institut San Fransisco and Kulturverwaltung des Landes Berlin.
