On Tuesday, November 13 at 7:30pm, Tom's Place presents
(Chris Brown, piano & electronics;
Biggi Vinkeloe, winds;
Donald Robinson, percussion)
black thread (electronics)
Jeff Surak (sound art)
We at Tom's Place are stoked to be hosting the CBD Trio, featuring
German/French/Swedish reedmistress (is that a word?) Biggi Vinkeloe, with
East Bay allstars Chris Brown on piano & electronics and Donald Robinson
on trap drums. Not surprisingly, they play solid, powerful Eurostile
improv with strong free-jazz underpinnings. Should be a hot set.
There's a clip from their excellent album on Rastascan records here:
The show will start with shortish sets by sound artist Jeff Surak and
analog tape-manipulator black thread (Greg Garbage.) Surak's web bio
(http://violet.zer...) says he operates "in the netherworld between
composed and improvised music, moving between musique concrete, drone,
noise, & free improvisation using whatever sound implements at hand."
We first heard black thread at this years Transbay Skronkathon BBQ.
He sets up on the floor in the middle of an assemblage of rebuilt cassette
recorders and produces glassy, liquid, staticy mixes of mysterious and
melodic tape loops fed through unstable, decaying circuits. His sound
was fresh and astonishing. We wanted to hear more, so we booked him.
There's a nice clip here: http://www.youtub...
