Pushing a duo of tenor saxophone & drums through the lineage of shearing notes / loud banging which produces a sonic contrast that teeters on the breaking point, LOW BLEEDS (JAY KORBER, tenor saxophone RANDYLEE SUTHERLAND, drums) chew upon the rigid boundaries of music and explore the total uninhibited free form. No deviation from raw direct performance.
ECHO'S BONES (SHELDON BROWN - Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Flute, Bass Flute; AMBER LAMPRECHT - Oboe, English Horn, Alto Flute; JOSEPH NOBLE - Flute, Alto Flute, Bass Flute) woodwind trio plays improvised music that has been described as “avant pastoralism in a chamber music mode”. Our music develops from the combined timbres of three different acoustic woodwind instruments blending, diverging and conversing, incorporating numerous musical traditions in free improvisational performances.
During the lockdown, a pattern started that has continued to this day: three musicians gathered regularly in a room filled with curly plants to play music together with zero plans, guiding points or directions. With such open parameters in place, they experimented with the sounds of our instruments and played with color, line and texture through free improvisation. The result was ECHO's BONES. Lately, they’ve come out of our living room and have been performing in book-adjacent venues around the Bay Area. They are honored to bring our complimentary flavors, counterpoints, splashes, grunts, squeaks, trills, haunting melodies, and fog horn blasts to Mosswood Chapel.
