JB Floyd: New Music for the Yamaha Disklavier™

Raphael Mostel: intimate, acoustic
November 20, 2008 at Roulette.

For many years, JB Floyd has been exploring the myriad possibilities of the Yamaha Disklavier™ — the modern answer to the player piano — and combining it with both Computer Assisted Virtual Instruments and live, acoustic performers. Floyd will premiere a new setting of Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore’s poem "In Crossing The Busy Street," featuring baritone Thomas Buckner, plus other new compositions and improvisations. Also joining Floyd for this concert will be pianist Liana Pailodze, a rising star on the music scene from University of Miami. “Yamaha artist James Robert Floyd personifies the Renaissance man. He is a teacher, performer and composer who has written in almost every musical genre.” — yamaha.com. Disklavier™ provided by Yamaha Artist Services.

Raphael Mostel will present a rare performance of intimate solo works, featuring previews of his Letter to Benoit Mandelbrot and his Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Black Bela. “The music of Raphael Mostel, one of New York’s most original composers, has always evoked the subtle and continuous sounds of nature: nocturnal insects, the wind, the distant howling of wolves, the music of the spheres, cosmic dramas.” — Kyle Gann, The New York Times

JB Floyd
JB Floyd's musical interests have prompted his participation in a diversity of musical activities throughout his career. A pianist, composer, and improviser, his music making includes classical piano recitals and solo appearances with orchestra, new music performances as soloist and collaborator, jazz improvisations, and presentations (in the 70's) of his multi-media electronic ensemble - Electric Stereopticon. Floyd's compositions include solo piano pieces, works for piano/Disklavier and computer assisted electronic instruments, and works for chorus, orchestra, jazz ensembles and chamber music combinations. His compositions have received performances in Europe, Canada, South America, Taiwan and South Korea, and throughout the United States. Presently, Floyd serves as Professor of Keyboard Performance, at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami.

Raphael Mostel
Working exclusively with acoustic and deliberately spare means, Mostel has been described as "one of New York's most original and popular composers" by Kyle Gann. John Cage wrote, “[Mostel's] music Has no Problems...bEcause it is so beautifuL." The Royal Concertgebouw and Chicago Symphony orchestras, New York City Opera Education have performed his works for standard instruments. He is also creator and director of the Tibetan Singing Bowl Ensemble: New Music for Old Instruments [sm], which John Schaefer described as "timeless yet completely original and individual."

I n t e r p r e t a t i o n s

The concert series featuring leading figures in contemporary music and multi-media arts celebrates its 20th Season!

*****

Thursday October 2, 2008, 8pm at Roulette.

Myra Melford Quartet performs "Happy Whistlings."

Henry Threadgill’s Zooid + Talujon Percussion Quartet perform "Fate Cues."



For this evening, we bring together two of the most interesting, cutting-edge composer-performers in the creative music scene to present two of their most recent musical adventures:

Happy Whistlings

Ms. Melford collaborates with up-and-coming Brooklyn improvisers for a collage of improvisation and new compositions. This new work is inspired by the writings of Uruguayan journalist Eduardo Galeano, specifically the "Memory of Fire" trilogy, his vastly encompassing interpretation of the history of the Americas.

Myra Melford, piano; Matana Roberts, saxophone; Mary Halvorson, guitar; Harris Eisenstadt, percussion.


"In the next millennium, jazz will be based on personal vocabularies like Melford's, drawing on, but also radically adapting, blues, swing, and a breadth of other 'traditional' qualities. It will still be 'jazz' if its players interact as they do here, closely and for singular effect, with expressive intent behind their virtuosic performances." — Howard Mandel, Jazziz

http://www.myspace.com/myramelford

*****
Fate Cues

Commissioned by Talujon with funds provided by the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust

"I never knew a serious creative artist who was a republican" — Edward Albee

"The quote from Edward Albee is just a constituent contributor to a larger dynamic or source that I reference in terms of stimulation. All of the constituents don't necessarily fit logically together but they serve as a type of abstract code for me. Thus 'Fate Cues' is somewhat about how differences can work together." — Henry Threadgill

Zooid: Henry Threadgill, saxophone/flute; Jose Davila, tuba; Liberty Ellman, guitar; Stomu Takeishi, bass guitar; Elliot Kavee, drums.

Talujon Percussion Quartet: David Cossin, Dominic Donato, Michael Lipsey, and Matt Ward.

"According to Webster, a 'zooid' is any organic body or cell capable of spontaneous movement, and thus existence independent of the parent organism. Threadgill is the father, but his band mates are the offspring who have the liberty to move where they want in the group’s song-like pieces." — Dan Ouellette

Myra Melford

"From her first album in 1991, it was clear that this pianist and composer would stay around," the New York Times said of Myra Melford. Melford has not only stuck around but has flourished: appearing on more than 30 recordings, including 17 as a leader or co-leader, performing in more than 30 countries, winning major awards for composition and piano performance, receiving a Fulbright Scholarship to study harmonium in India, and working with some of the world's most innovative musicians. Melford's staying power is the product of ceaseless musical travels; she's always going somewhere. As Francis Davis noted, "Myra Melford is the genuine article, the most gifted pianist/composer to emerge from jazz since Anthony Davis." Current projects include: the electro-acoustic Be Bread; a cooperative duo with reedist Marty Ehrlich, which released the critically acclaimed Spark! on Palmetto in 2007; and the collectively-led Trio M, with bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Matt Wilson, with the release, Big Picture, on Cryptogramophone. Earlier in her career, she led the Myra Melford Trio; the quintet The Same River, Twice; and the electro-acoustic trio/quartet Crush, and the collectively-led Equal Interest with Joseph Jarman and Leroy Jenkins. Melford is an Assistant Professor of Improvisational Composition and Performance Practices at the University of California, Berkeley.


Henry Threadgill

Composer, multi-instrumentalist and bandleader, Henry Threadgill has been a seminal figure in the vanguard of contemporary instrumental music since the early 70s. His body of music includes more than 150 recorded works which, while firmly rooted in America's Great Black Music tradition, often integrate forms and instruments historically associated with chamber or orchestral music. Threadgill has led some of the most acclaimed and adventurous instrumental ensembles of the past four decades: the trio Air, which emerged from the core membership of Chicago's visionary cooperative the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (A.A.C.M.) to become one of the most influential bands of the '70s and early '80s; the resourceful seven-piece Sextett he formed in the early '80s and led through the advent of the '90s; specialty units as X-75, his 20-piece Society Situation Dance Band and his Marching Band; and his current groups, Very Very Circus! and Zooid. He has received diverse commissions ranging from small ensembles such as the Roscoe Mitchell and Rova Saxophone Quartets, to larger works for the American Jazz Orchestra "Salute to Harold Arlen", the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Next Wave Festival and the Brooklyn Philharmonic. Threadgill sees himself as an artist in a state of constant change, and views his creative process as an ever-evolving one: "I don't perceive what I'm doing in a finite sense, but on a certain level my music can be seen as part of a continuum."


Talujon Percussion Quartet

Described by the New York Times as an ensemble possessing an "edgy, unflagging energy", the Talujon Percussion Quartet has been mesmerizing audiences since 1990. With an annual schedule of more than 60 concerts, including a dozen premieres, Talujon is thoroughly committed to the expansion of the contemporary percussion repertoire as well as the education and diversification of its worldwide audience. The gentlemen that make up the quartet — David Cossin, Dominic Donato, Tom Kolor, and Michael Lipsey — all also perform widely as freelance artists.

Interpretations presents Oliver Lake Big Band & Joe Giardullo's G2
http://interpretations.info
8:00pm
Roulette 20 Greene St
New York, New York, United States
The Jazz Revolution Continues
Interpretations presents an evening with:
Oliver Lake Big Band ☉ Joe Giardullo’s G2
April 3, 2008 at Roulette.

The young upstarts aren’t the only ones expanding the sound of jazz today. Interpretations presents two of jazz’s elder statesmen who are still pushing personal boundaries ever-outward. The Oliver Lake Big Band sounds like the whole history of African-American music going on simultaneously, but centered around the traditional big band sound: it swings like a big band, shakes its thang hip-hop stylee, and testifies to the revolutionary spirit of free jazz.

Joe Giardullo’s G2 continues the tradition of stretching the umbrella of jazz: what makes a jazz ensemble, what sounds like jazz, what are the roles of and in jazz? G2 is a flexible large-ensemble concept, concocted by Giardullo in the late 70s and reconceived in the new millennium, in which everyone has a chance to answer those questions aloud, in their own way, musically.

Oliver Lake Big Band: Oliver Lake, Bruce Williams, alto sax; Erica Lindsay, James Steward, tenor sax; Jason Marshall, bari sax; Peck Allmond, Nabate Ilses, trumpet; Al Patterson, Aaron Johnson, Vince Chandler, trombone; Yoichi Uzeki, piano; Bob Sabin, bass; Otis Brown, drums

Joe Giardullo’s G2: Chris Chalfant, piano; Michael Snow, violin; Gwen Laster, violin; Larry Packer, viola; Daniel Levin, cello; Harvey Sorgen, percussion; Joe Giardullo, soprano & sopranino saxophones

Oliver Lake
"It's all about choices," states modern Renaissance Man Oliver Lake to explain his expansive artistic vision. An accomplished poet, painter and performance artist, Lake has published a book of poetry entitled Life Dance, has exhibited and sold a number of his unique painted-sticks at the Montclair Art Museum, and has toured the country with his one-man performance piece, Matador of 1st and 1st. But it's his extraordinary talents as composer, saxophonist, flautist and bandleader that have brought him world-renown. Although his greatest reputation exists in the world of jazz, Lake's amazingly eclectic musical approach is best expressed by his popular poem SEPARATION: “put all my food on the same plate!”

“The modern big-band sound funnels directly back to the Count Basie band from the 1950's, with its pinpoint blending of reeds and brass and dynamic drumming. Not Mr. Lake's. He mixes blues and gospel, funk and free; but his free jazz is never maundering. He likes players with a sense of humor and style; his pieces explode with bursts of chaotic energy but don't lose direction.” — Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

Joe Giardullo
Born in Brooklyn and raised on the South Shore of Long Island, Joe Giardullo grew up on R&B, playing tenor sax in club and regional bands. In the 1960's, he moved to the Woodstock area, where he got his first soprano saxophone. Joe played all kinds of music — improvised, jazz, rock, blues, club date, weddings — but things grew stale and in 1977, he moved to Amsterdam. Shortly thereafter, Joe returned to live 100 miles north of New York City where he slipped into a 10 year hiatus from public performance, yet continued to play in private. One night in 1991, he met up with saxophonist/trumpeter Joe McPhee at a club. That meeting marked the beginning of a continuing collaboration, and it has also reintroduced audiences in the US, Canada and Europe to Giardullo's music. Since then, Joe has been active in the US and Europe with many of the most highly regarded musicians.

“Giardullo is willing into existence a music that occurs beyond his control. Giardullo is finding a way for musicians to be themselves while serving a larger cause.” — John Szwed, Signal To Noise

Interpretations: Al Margolis & Denman Maroney
http://interpretations.info
8:00pm
20 Greene Street
New York, New York, United States
Interpretations presents brand-new works from two pioneers in two genres of music: electronic music maven Al Margolis from the DIY underground cassette world and “hyperpianist” Denman Maroney from the free improv/avant-garde scene. Margolis collaborates with a small ensemble of friends (including folks from the latest If, Bwana incarnation) to create introspective, otherworldly sonic tapestries accompanied by video. Maroney goes it alone, but always sounds like a small ensemble, culling wild sounds from inside and outside the piano. This is your chance to hear these pieces, because they’ll never sound the same way again!

Featuring: Al Margolis manipulating prerecorded sounds and sampling; Lisa Barnard, vocals; Monique Buzzarté, trombone; Tom Hamilton, electronics; Jacqueline Martelle, flute; and Katherine Liberovskaya, video.

The Playground, Creative Music Works, and Mystery Cabal welcome

Tatsuya Nakatani

With

The Playground

And

Brandon Vaccaro

Tatsuya Nakatani is a percussionist, originally from Osaka, Japan, who performs creative music around the world. He has created his own instrumentation and unique sound, effectively inventing many voices which come through his conventional and non-conventional instruments. He utilizes drum set, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects, bells, and various sticks to create an intense, organic music that defies category or genre.
