thanks: Eris 136199 (DMG, NYC) and Park-Sikora-Sinton (Harvestworks, NYC)

Acknowledgments re the, for the time being, final performances of two projects: Eris 136199 on October 27, and Metis 9 on October 29. My hat goes off to my comrades Nick Didkovsky and Catherine Sikora who make Eris 136199 the site of unexpected choices—of twists and turns. We’d thought our previous performance was weird, this […]

unique, exciting and engaging (audio clip: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park)

The fractured phrases that erupt throughout this disc often sound like just one musician playing…. Completely unique, exciting and engaging. [More…] — Bruce Lee Gallanter (Downtown Music Gallery) How many performers can you hear in this clip?

lively, relevant, dizzying (audio clip: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park)

lively, relevant, dizzying electroacoustic music; music that seems to be daring us to try and catch it. [More…] — François Couture (Monsieur Délire) Third audio except from Richard Barrett and Han-earl Park’s CD, ‘Numbers’ (CS 201 cd) released by Creative Sources Recordings. This clip is from ‘tolur,’ the track that opens the CD. Does it […]

an intricate web (audio clip: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park)

By means of an intricate web of sonic hiccups, scrapes, scouring, gluts, gargles and cuts, they build an acoustic lucid computational delirium, whose trajectory is impossible to outguess. [More…] — Vito Camarretta (Chain D.L.K.) Second audio except from Richard Barrett and Han-earl Park’s CD, ‘Numbers’ (CS 201 cd) released by Creative Sources Recordings. This clip, […]

frantically jagged (audio clip: Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park)

Bazillions of events… for the joy of individuals who take pleasure in getting their brain zapped and scrambled by the rivalry between transonic beauty and extreme structural atomization. This is in fact a full hour of frantically jagged live improvisation…. [More…] — Massimo Ricci (Touching Extremes) I’m enormously proud of ‘Numbers’ (CS 201 cd), the […]

Thanks also to […]

live reviews: Mathilde 253 at Freedom of the City, London

In his review of this year’s Freedom of the City festival, Tim Owen at Dalston Sound calls Mathilde 253’s set on May 6 “one of the punchiest performances”: …A trio featuring ex-This Heat drummer Charles Hayward, electric guitarist Han-Earl Park and trumpeter Ian Smith. Hayward was playing at his most impressionistic, Smith’s trumpet correspondingly all […]
