More Info

"Recorded live in concert in Poughkeepsie, New York, in July 2013, this free improvisation brings together three very different sets of sound sources and artistic temperaments. Using violin, the experimental springboard and the GREIS software (Granular-Feedback Expanded Instrument System), Eric Leonardson, Al Margolis and Doug Van Nort create dense, doom-laden sedimentations of sound with immediate emotional impact.

Al Margolis plays the violin and synthesizer in an approach very different from his work as If, Bwana. Eric Leonardson performs on the springboard, an experimental instrument he created in 1994 to explore the sonic potential of coil springs and other readily available materials. The inaudible vibrations of these materials are amplified by a piezo disc contact microphone. Played with cello bows and homemade friction mallets, they produce extraordinary. Doug Van Nort performs on a laptop using his self-created GREIS improvisation environment (pronounced grace), created in MAX/MSP." [label info]
