Eris 136199: tour and recording (Kickstarter)

Eris 136199: Kickstarter 2017

The two week Kickstarter campaign starts today! Eris 136199 is reuniting for a European tour complete with a second album. All we need is YOU. Interaction with, and within, Eris is an always awesome experience; unique in bringing so many strands of the musically possible together. I’m very excited to be playing again with two of my favorite musicians, avant-rock legend Nick Didkovsky and the powerfully creative improviser Catherine Sikora, and finally bringing this trio to European audiences.

Eris 136199: five years ago today

Nick Didkovsky, Catherine Sikora and Han-earl Park

Five years ago, three musicians, never having previously played together as a trio, performed at ABC No Rio. Subsequently, the ensemble gained a name, played many a gig, and released an album. Fast-forward to the present: we’re in the middle of organizing our European tour (more soon!).

Thanks: Sirene 1009 (Cork, 2017)

Sirene 1009: Caroline Pugh, Han-earl Park, Dominic Lash and Mark Sanders (Cork, 04-07-17). Copyright 2017 John Hough.

Here’s what the group sounds/looks like from where I sit on stage: Dom Lash’s confident and enthusiastic interjections in sound and line; Mark Sander’s unerring inventiveness—leaping any and all obstacles to musicality with gestures small and large; and Caroline Pugh’s pulling in-and-out of musical and linguistic spaces with her spontaneous conlangs.

Kinetic, energetic; an exceptional community of improvisers will be performing on 19 May 2017 when Sirene 1009 returns to Cork for a concert at CIT Cork School of Music, Cork, Ireland. The final concert in the Art Council funded series features guitarist Han-earl Park, double bassist Dominic Lash, drummers Mark Sanders and Dan Walsh, vocalist Caroline Pugh, and saxophonist Catherine Sikora.

Sirene 1009, “a fierce, adventurous band that goes… into the unknown, fearlessly in search of the new” (David Menestres, Free Jazz), makes their Cork debut as part of the Arts Council of Ireland funded series, starting with a free concert at 1:10pm on Friday, 7 April 2017 at the Aula Maxima, UCC, continuing at 8:00pm on 19 May, Stack Theatre, CIT Cork School of Music. Sirene 1009 is the cyborg virtuosity of Han-earl Park, the indomitable low-end growl of Dominic Lash, the unstoppable hits and clangs of Mark Sanders, and the controlled vocal mayhem of Caroline Pugh.

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

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!
