New, and available for free download from the netlabel Pan y Rosas–Transparent Points on Four Axes.
Transparent Points on Four Axes is a layered, electroacoustic studio collaboration from double bassist Daniel Barbiero, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Ken Moore, and modular synthesist Dave Vosh. Each track began with a ground layer of a composed or improvised performance on double bass or synthesizer, in tandem with a directed, auto-generated soundscape produced by an analogue modular synthesizer. The tracks were finished with a further layering of synthesizer, electronics and percussion. The result is a richly textured music growing out of the dynamic interactions of sound shape, color and line.
Daniel Barbiero: double bass (tracks 2, 5, 6, 7 & 8); Sylosynth app (tracks 1 & 3); Microbrute synthesizer (track 4).
Ken Moore: Crackle Box (track 2); MiniMoog (track 8); Emax sampler (tracks 1, 5, 6) ; tam tams (tracks 3, 4, 7); steel pan drum (track 8); glockenspiel (track 8); bells, bowls and other percussion (all tracks).
Dave Vosh: analogue modular synthesizer (all tracks).
Recorded January & February 2018 in Silver Spring MD, Upper Marlboro MD, and Cuyahoga Falls, OH; assembled in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, February 2018, at Anvil Creations Studio.
Microeconomics, featuring Ben Redwine on clarinet, Jon Matis on piano, and myself on double bass, is now officially out.
Microeconomics is a set of music clarinetist Ben Redwine pianist Jon Matis and I recorded live in the studio in February 2015. It officially drops on June 30, but you can download a free track from All About Jazz. The track, Microeconomics Part 3a Graphics 5, is a section of our realization of a graphic score I brought with me to the session.
