Scratchtracks: The Music of Jude Traxler (2014)
Featuring Brett William Dietz with Chemorocket and futureCities
Commissioned by Brett William Dietz for his album of glockenspiel solos, Nocturne, Revolver is a mind-bending work for solo glock and 6-channel delay. With speakers placed around the audience, Revolver plays on directional themes and riffs on motives from Rage Against the Machine’s tune by the same name.
The Foundry Steel Pan Ensemble plays Andy Akiho’s “Alloy” in a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles. We were in town for a performance with the LA Philharmonic as part of the Green Umbrella Series.
Based on 21 chords, the Black Brave Ocean evolved into 5 installations – individual compositions that are, essentially, bad copies of bad copies, creating structural and tonal variations that eventually collapse into a series of theatric games and concluding with no performers at all through audio playback.
Stuart and I met in June of 2007. After many years of discussing the lack of finesse and musicality in “electronic” music, we collaborated on a structure of graphic notations and electron manipulations. The result – a romp of improvisatory drumming and an iPod on shuffle. Check out the overhead cam from the studio recording with Dustin Cicero at Manhattan School of Music in 2010.
