Eris 136199

This has been my favorite tour! Excellent company, exemplary hosts, faultless, above-and-beyond support from all. Everyone here worked so hard for no material gain to make the musicians’ journey as effortless as possible. My hosts have reminded me why we all do this; that creative music brings gradations and spectra to the sometimes hard-edged world, that it refuses and resists and rewrites the 1-bit world into something altogether more colorful and toneful and rhythmic and noisy. I am forever grateful; it was a true pleasure to work with y’all.

improvisation, animation, sociality, tradition and politics (a Jazz Noise: 7 Questions)

Eris 136199: Han-earl Park, Catherine Sikora and Nick Didkovsky (Douglass Street Music Collective, Brooklyn, June 5, 2013). Photo copyright 2013 Scott Friedlander.

Over at a Jazz Noise, you can read my answers to Dave Foxall’s 7 Questions such as my take on collaboration or what I seek in collaborators; what and who I’ve been listening to; what I’ve got planned; my take on the late-capitalist bootleg economy; and about my non-musical influences. Plus you can hear an exclusive track from Sirene 1009!
