site update: Han-earl Park bio plus YouTube playlist

Although nowhere near a big a revision as the last major update, I’ve made some significant changes to my bio. Below is the new verbose, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink, 472 word version [shorter versions…]. Improviser, guitarist and constructor Han-earl Park (박한얼) (www.busterandfriends.com) has been crossing borders and performing fuzzily idiomatic, on occasion experimental, always traditional, open improvised musics […]

site update: scrapbook redux reboot

Another summary of the updates to my scrapbook since the last review. A few newer clips from Brooklyn and New York which include some of the best music I’ve been involved in (the duo with Gerald Cleaver, in particular, has, for me, some of my best playing), plus a blast from the past: Mathilde 253 […]

farewell, Brooklyn, it’s been a blast

Crucible Sound: interview with Han-earl Park

Over at Crucible Sound, Anthony Levin-Decanini interviews Han-earl Park about idiom, identity, collaborators, teaching and a-ha moments: Idiom, tradition, identity, history (personal or collective) are things that I value. I tend not to subscribe to the vanilla notion of a pure, non-idiomatic state. I value the meeting: I want to know who you are, who […]

thanks: Parker-Park (The Stone, NYC), Park-Sikora-Sinton (DSMC, Brooklyn) and Park-Parkins (The Living Gallery, Brooklyn)

Three gigs; and I couldn’t ask for a more varied and musically valuable seven days. I learned a heck of a lot (about my capabilities as an improviser, and about the social dynamics of interactive play) performing with Evan Parker. Still reeling from the experience, I’m grateful for the opportunity to play with Mr Parker […]

reminder: Evan Parker and Han-earl Park at The Stone, New York

The British saxophonist Evan Parker, 69, has been a major figure in free improvisation since the late 1960s. That’s not only because of his sound and style, which starts from late Coltrane and pushes ahead—turning the process of circular breathing into a supercollider of tones and overtones—but also because of his sociability. The best free […]

performance: Evan Parker and Han-earl Park at The Stone, New York

Thursday, September 19, 2013, at 10:00pm: a performance by Evan Parker (saxophones) and Han-earl Park (guitar), as part of Parker’s residency (September 17–22), takes place at The Stone (16 Avenue C, New York, NY 10009). Admission: $15 $20 (students 13–19: $10; children <12: free). With the change in the curatorial policy, I didn’t think I’d […]

thanks: Gerald Cleaver and Han-earl Park at Douglass Street Music Collective, Brooklyn

Like I said last time, necessity is the mother of invention. Two things sparked this second duo*3 event at DSMC: Gerald Cleaver was going to be available (been trying to corner him with a gig since January), and Viv Corringham had just moved to New York. I then asked Chris Pitsiokos if he’d like to […]
