Brash Indie Rockers Passed Out Release Single (RIYL Desaparecidos / Japandroids)

Hi Musikoon,

Hope all is well. I am reaching out to you about a new project we are repping from angtsy Buffalo indie rockers Passed Out in hopes that you’ll check out their new single "Bukouski & Brautigan"

0

Band: Passed Out

Single: "​Bukowski & Brautigan’ soundcloud link



RIYL: Desaparecidos, Japandroids

The Buffalo, NY emo[tional]-punk outfit, Passed Out (f. 2015) consider themselves a champion for the despondent; turning inward to channel their emotional vulnerability and unguarded passion in an effort to write songs for those wearing their heavy hearts on their sleeves. Coming off their August 2016 debut EP ‘Infinite Regression,’ which the band described as an “encapsulation of their energetic and raw live sound.” With their forthcoming EP ‘the Aforementioned and how it Pertains to Absolutely Nothing’ (due for release on October 20, 2017) Passed Out aims to ascend to a more refined sound, whilst remaining true to the youthful angst that has brought the band notoriety within the Buffalo music scene.

With,‘Bukowski & Brautigan,’ an aggressively angst-y anthem and the latest single from the bands forthcoming EP, Passed Out is picking up where they left off with Infinite Regression. On the surface, the lyrics describe a slight that lay to rest an important relationship; however, in accordance with most of their songs, there exists a much deeper subjectivity beneath the façade of a catchy framework. Furthermore, ‘Bukowski & Brautigan’ wrestles with the ramifications of losing someone; an important limb of oneself and retreating into the depths of seclusion.

Passed Out currently consists of focal songwriter and guitarist, Andy Pothier (Pine Fever and Deadwolf); bass player, Jake Rogers; lead-guitarist, Dominic Sciarrino (the Stockcar Boys); and drummer, Dan Schwach (Folkfaces, the Observers, and Tiny Rhymes).

NAMES – Limb By Limb

‘Limb by Limb’ by Pembrokeshire-based duo Name’s is the follow up single to ‘Backs Turned’, a song that has already been included in BBC Introducing Wales list of songs of 2017. It was also described by ‘From the Margins’ as a “wintry soundscape with all the fluency, space and atmosphere of Mogwai’s Les Revenants soundtrack”.

Where do you go after creating such an assured artistic statement with your debut single? ‘Limb by Limb’ is the answer. Names have shed any creative ego to create a raw, emotionally rich song devoid of self-indulgence and over reaching dramatization. Yet again Ioan and Joey have found beauty within the smouldering ashes left in the wake of life’s broken relationships. As Ioan explains, ‘Limb by Limb’ is “largely inspired by the ignorance of issues within a relationship which slowly bring about its demise. Also the effect of a background anxiety on life and ability to socialise.”

‘Limb by Limb’ musically and lyrically perfectly depict the contrasting moments of clarity and internal isolation one feels holding on to a dying relationship. The sense of calm in the release, yet claustrophobic panic of the unknown. As with Talk Talk’s majestic ‘Spirit of Eden’, Names are quickly becoming masters of the intimate, unseen but deeply felt moments we share. Their music explodes on to a cinematic canvas full of flowing chords and echoey melodies.

Limb by Limb

Sit opposite,
Ignore it,
Stay far away from corners nothing good’s ever behind them in the dark.
Feel it all getting smaller,
Closer to the core,
So much brighter so much hotter.
Don’t be alone,
Don’t be alone.
Stay silent in the face of noise,
Refrain from the human joy
Everyone is bathing in
Day by day.
Washing yourself in the pond,
It ripples for a second,
Dissipates and soon you’re gone:
Wave by wave,
Limb by limb.

Dear friends in Music
​​​​​​​
MoonJune Records’ new release Wingfield Reuter SirkisLighthouse” which was recorded at the magic settings of the XI Century mansion La Casa Murada in Banyeres del Penedes, in the picturesque Catalan countryside – is officially out now! This is a quintessential MoonJune album!

Explosive mix of impromptu progressive rock, improvisational jazz, space rock, experimental music. An excellent sounding release that surely will take listeners through an aural canyon from darkness into the light. – Wesley Derbyshire, Mediaversal

The work is a tour de force. The chemistry is inspiring. The skill with which the instruments are wielded is mind numbing. The final tune “Surge” brought me to the point of spontaneous applause and joyful laughter. Thank you gentlemen! – Mike Shockley, BandCamp

Note by John Kelman (All About Jazz)

It’s rare that an album emerges as something entirely new; so different that there aren’t any genre or sub-genre categories into which it comfortably fits. Like its critically acclaimed, similarly forward-reaching and all-improvised sister The Stone House – released first but actually recorded second during a marathon six-day 2016 series of sessions that will ultimately yield more than the three albums initially planned – Lighthouse is an even more tumultuous, texture-driven and, perhaps, overtly daring ride than the undeniably audacious The Stone House.

Lighthouse, featuring guitarist Mark Wingfield, touch guitarist Markus Reuter and drummer Asaf Sirkis, represents a true paradigm shift in what improvised music can be. This isn’t jazz, though its improvisational spontaneity suggests at least a tenuous link. It isn’t rock – or, more appropriately, progressive rock – though it certainly is, by definition, progressive in its futuristic stance. Nor is it free improv, despite its overall lack of planning. Instead, the bold and utterly fresh Lighthouse represents nothing less than a brand new methodology and a completely unheard-of way of doing things, its sense of progression and imagination miraculously drawn from the ether, with no clear precedent or preconception.

Mark Wingfield‘s 2015 MoonJune album Proof of Light (also featuring Sirkis and The Stone House bassist, Yaron Stavi) was a career-definer and instrument gamer-changer for the American-born British guitarist, whose reach ranges from jazz to rock to classical music and beyond, and with a C.V. that features work with improvisers ranging from fellow-Brit Iain Ballamy and Indonesia’s Dwiki Dharmawan to Norway’s Thomas Strønen, as well as tenure in ResRocket, which includes collaboration of big names such as Peter Gabriel, Tricky, Todd Rundgren and Dave Stewart.

The multidisciplinary Markus Reuter – musician, composer, record producer and instrument designer – has become, after early years garnering exposure as a solo artist and with groups including Centrozoon and Tuner, to more popular acclaim and high demand as a member of Stick Men (featuring King Crimson’s Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto) and The Crimson ProjeKct (Stick Men, joined together with Crimson alum Adrian Belew’s Power Trio with Julie Slick and Tobias Ralph).

Israeli expat Asaf Sirkis‘ expansive resume has, since relocating to U.K. where he’s achieved attention for his own groups including The Inner Noise and guitar-based Asaf Sirkis Trio, built an expansive, still-growing resume that includes Tim Garland’s Lighthouse Trio, fellow Israeli expat Gilad Atzmon and the Orient House Ensemble, Jacob Collier, Natasha Atlas, Nicolas Meier, Phil Robson, Dwiki Dharmawan and Glauco Vernier, amongst many others.

Individually and, now, together as Wingfield Reuter Sirkis, these three imaginative musicians continue to expand the potential of their respective instruments … and, with the exhilarating Lighthouse, developed a new vernacular for 21st century improvisation.

​​​​​​​”…the sonic tapestry of all four instruments serves to enhance The Stone House’s inevitable storytelling atmosphere.” ***** (5 stars) DownBeat Magazine

“These four players, well-versed in transforming tangles of discursive strands into dazzling revelations, came together without any rehearsals or preamble, plugged in and took off. The resulting melange of rock-orientated grooves and languid drifts through spacey ambience is breathtakingly confident. With so much complimentary overlapping content and tuned-in acuity, you’d never guess that these six pieces were wholly improvised. Moving seamlessly from speculative reverie to ferocious, tumbling interplay, the degree to which this music sounds intricately arranged probably stems from the quartet’s ability to swap the focus from its frontline to backline in the twinkling of an eye, a rare capacity that brings to mind Wetton-era Crimson’s forays into the unknown. Wingfield’s impassioned guitar runs springboard from Reuter’s broad tonal sweeps. Bassist Yaron Stavi, whose nimble interlocking with drummer Asif Sirkis frequently regulates both direction and temperature.” – Sid Smith, Prog Rock Magazine

“That the collective resume of this group of rising star musicians includes everything from more clearly definable jazz to something that can only be described as progressive music… means that The Stone House is a truly unique record in its undercurrents from a multiplicity of musical perspectives…It’s an album that breaks many rules, but could only be made by four musicians who not only learned them first, but continue to apply them even as they find ways to push past them into new terrain. Completely unclassifiable, The Stone House is a record that will challenge many preconceptions while still being rooted in enough of the approachable to render its appeal to fans of progressive music… a career-defining record for everyone involved.” – John Kelman, All About Jazz

Dear Friends in Music

Keyboardist-arranger-composer Pete Levin‘s ninth solo release, Möbius, was recorded live in the studio in two days, capturing the “no boundaries” spirit of Gil Evans.

PETE LEVIN. In a diverse music career spanning several decades, keyboardist/arranger Pete has performed and recorded with hundreds of Jazz and Pop artists – including Paul Simon, Annie Lennox, Miles Davis, David Sanborn, Lenny White, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Robbie Robertson and John Scofield – receiving critical accolades for his work during a 15 year association with the legendary Gil Evans, and his 8 year stint with jazz icon Jimmy Giuffre. In 1990 he released his first solo album, “Party in the Basement,” for Gramavision, followed by “A Solitary Man” and “Masters In This Hall” in 1991. Following four CDs for Alternate Mode Productions during the ’90s, Pete returned to the cutting edge as a band leader with “Deacon Blues,” while also returning to his first love, the Hammond Organ. Spending the next few years performing in the classic organ trio format, Pete released two albums, “Certified Organic” and “Jump!”, featuring guitarist Dave Stryker and drummer Lenny White. He also organized a reunion band with alumni of the Gil Evans Orchestra of the ’70s. “The Monday Night Band” recorded a live album in New York City. Currently, Pete records and tours in a jazz quartet with his brother, bassist Tony Levin, “The Levin Brothers.”

LENNY WHITE. One of the great innovators of the modern drum set, Lenny White’s sonic fingerprints are all over modern jazz and funk. Not many drummers can claim a first gig with Jackie McLean and a Top 10 R&B hit ten years later. The soulful edge and innovative approach he brought to Miles Davis’ classic Bitches Brew and Chick Corea’s Return to Forever defined the sound of fusion; his influence has only grown since then, producing for stars like Chaka Khan and Nancy Wilson and earning a reputation as one of the most respected bandleaders and producers in any genre. Best known as the drummer in the recently reunited Return To Forever, Lenny White is much more. Along with fellow drummers Tony Williams and Billy Cobham, Lenny is rightly considered one of the founding fathers of Fusion Jazz. Distinguishing himself even more, Lenny moved on to lead bands and projects that covered the entire musical spectrum. As with many drummers, Lenny White’s career is often overshadowed by the artist/leaders of the bands of which he is a part, but as did Art Blakey, Tony Williams, and Billy Cobham, Lenny has also made important contributions as a skilled composer and arranger who has led a number of his own bands. He has written and produced more than 20 albums of his own

ALEX FOSTER. Saxophonist Alex Foster has been a part of many of the world’s most influential sounds to date. Best known in recent years for his work as the alto saxophonist in the house band of Saturday Night Live, he has also shared the stage with numerous world-class performers in varying genres. Alex is the musical director of the Mingus Big Band, Orchestra, and Dynasty and is currently completing his latest solo album. He has been heard on recordings and has performed alongside greats such as Jaco Pastorius, Herbie Hancock, Clark Terry, Jack DeJohnette, McCoy Tyner, Miles Davis, Tom Harrell, Freddie Hubbard, Nat and Cannonball Adderley, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Gil Evans, Dizzy Gillespie, John Scofield, Charles Mingus, Elvin Jones, Thad Jones, Hank Jones, Tito Puente, Michael Brecker and Duke Ellington. In the pop rock music scene he has recorded and/or performed with Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Dr. John, Paul Simon, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Aerosmith, Eddie Van Halen, Diana Ross, the Village People, Sister Sledge and Al Green. His versatility as an artist is not only present in the jazz and pop music scene, but is also prominent in the classical realm as well, performing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Oakland Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony and the National Symphony.

TONY LEVIN (bassist on the album). Tony Levin is an American musician and composer, specializing in electric bass, Chapman Stick and upright bass. Levin is best known for his work with progressive rock pioneers King Crimson and Peter Gabriel. He was also a member of instrumental-prog rock/jazz fusion group Liquid Tension Experiment; the King Crimson-related bands Bruford Levin Upper Extremities, ProjeKct One and ProjeKct Four; and currently leads his own band, Stick Men, and co-leads a jazz quartet with his brother Pete, The Levin Brothers. A prolific session musician since the 1970s, Levin has played on 500 albums, including those of Cher, Asia, Alice Cooper, John Lennon, Sarah McLachlan, Stevie Nicks, Pink Floyd, Paul Simon, Dire Straits, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Tom Waits, Buddy Rich, The Roches, Todd Rundgren, Seal, Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, Warren Zevon, Kevin Parent, Laurie Anderson, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Gibonni, and Jean-Pierre Ferland. Additionally, he has toured with artists including Paul Simon (with whom Levin appeared in Simon’s 1980 film One-Trick Pony), Gary Burton, James Taylor, Herbie Mann, Judy Collins, Carly Simon, Peter Frampton, Tim Finn, Richie Sambora, Ivano Fossati and Claudio Baglioni. Levin helped to popularize the Chapman Stick and the NS upright bass. In 2011, Levin ranked second (behind John Paul Jones) in The “20 Most Underrated Bass Guitarists” in Paste Magazine.

IRA COLEMAN(touring bassist). The son of a Swedish Mother and an American artist, Ira was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up in Southern France and Cologne Germany. He moved to the U.S. to attend Berklee College of Music. From there, his resumé tells the story. Over the years, Ira has worked with such well-known figures as Cab Calloway, Tony Williams, Freddie Hubbard, Betty Carter, Branford Marsalis, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Pharoah Sanders, Billy Cobham, Nat Adderly, Jessye Norman, Plácido Domingo and Sting. He was musical director for vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater and toured with her internationally from 2002 until 2009. One night he’s on the stage at Carnegie Hall playing in a tribute to African-American culture. The next morning he is on a plane to Europe to collaborate on a recording or heading to Japan for a jazz festival. As comfortable playing Jamaican rhythms as he is accompanying a gospel choir or performing in a Jazz trio, this professional bass player has built an international reputation for versatility.

JEFF CIAMPA. Contemporary Jazz Guitarist Jeff Ciampa has recorded and toured with some of the most demanding practitioners, including Harry Belafonte, Jon Lucien, Dave Matthews, Mark Egan, Bill Evans, Al MacDowell, Ornette Coleman and Lew Soloff. His fluid melodic style, steeped in the jazz tradition, continues to inspire fellow musicians and listeners worldwide. Jeff studied at the esteemed Berklee School of Music in Boston under the tutelage of guitarist extraordinaire, Pat Metheny. Several years later, he found himself fronting a trio with the sidemen who accompanied Metheny on many of his seminal recordings, bassist Mark Egan and drummer Danny Gottlieb. Later, Jeff found himself touring with Caribbean icon, singer/actor Harry Belafonte and subsequently with popular jazz vocalist, Jon Lucien. After a lengthy stint with Belafonte and Lucien, Jeff befriended long time Ornette Coleman bassist Al McDowell, with whom he recorded three critically acclaimed sessions for Gramavision Records. Jeff has recorded two solo albums on the Wavetone label, Signs of Life and House of Mirrors, featuring Mark Egan and Danny Gottlieb. The popular trio has performed at major jazz festivals, including the JVC in New York City, the Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island, the St. Lucia Jazz Festival, and the St. Kitt’s Jazz Festival.

CHRIS PASIN. Trumpeter Chris Pasin’s career goes from his study at New England Conservatory, to touring with a variety of artists, to the upper Hudson Valley music and recording scene, where he currently resides. After working with George Russell’s New York band, he spent several years in the jazz trumpet chair with the Buddy Rich band, touring the US, and the world. Performances with Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughn, Nancy Wilson, and Ray Charles also took place during this period. A decade in New York City included five years playing with the Toshiko Akiyoshi / Lew Tabackin band, Brother Jack McDuff, several major salsa bands, and a host of New York – based musicians. This culminated in Chris’s first CD “Detour Ahead” with Steve Slagle, Benny Green, Rufus Reid, and Dannie Richmond in 1987. Chris continues to write music and generate a range of musical projects, from his last CD “Random Acts of Kindness” to the recent band “Ornettiquette,” featuring music of and inspired by Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry. He’s been a member of Lee Shaw’s quintet, the popular all-star band Reelin’ in the Years, curated a successful weekly jazz performance series. Chris is an in-demand studio trumpet player, working regularly with a host of artists encompassing a range of genres. Soon he’ll release his new holiday album, “Baby, it’s Cold Outside.”

NANNY ASSIS. Brazilian Best Male Performer in the United States by Brazilian Press Award. Singer, percussionist, song-writer and Bahia native Nanny Assis, is a hard talent to define. He started his career as a drummer and percussionist, but has developed into a brilliant multiform musician. His evolution as an artist has revealed him to also be an awesome singer and composer. Singer, drummer, percussionist, song-writer and Bahia native Nanny Assis, has played with such artists as Vinicius Cantauria, Eumir Deodato. He is a master of Brazilian Jazz, Afro-Brazilian music and other popular and folkloric sounds from his homeland. Nanny has performed in venues such as Palais Montcalm Quebec City, B.B.King, Blue Note NYC, Bimhuis Amsterdan, Jazz Standard, Birdland, Joe’s Pub, Vortex Jazz Club London, Sunset Paris, Regattabar, Dakota Jazz Club, London’s BBC, Queen Elizabeth Hall London, Blue Note in Milan, Rome Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Fregey Theatre in Belgium, TCA in Brazil, and Chiasso Festival in Switzerland.

“Great to see some of the original members doing it the right way.”
– Steve Hackett

The Security Project has once again reinvented itself, this time with vocalist Happy Rhodes. Together with Jerry Marotta (drummer from Peter Gabriel’s first five records), Trey Gunn (King Crimson), Michael Cozzi (Shriekback) and NY keyboardist David Jameson, the group continues reimagining the early work of Peter Gabriel (and also, on this disc, Kate Bush), but with Happy’s impressive four-octave vocals adding an entirely new dimension.

The Security Project will be releasing their new live album “CONTACT” on November 18, 2017! The material is culled from shows in the US and their recent Japanese tour. The band will be touring the US in support of the album release in November.

“The Security Project live is a beautifully reverential and creative reinterpretation of these Peter Gabriel classics!” – Kevin Killen, engineer of Gabriel’s “So” record

“The Security Project expertly reimagines Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking early output, creating an immersive experience both in performance and on its debut release Live 1. The group goes far beyond conventional tribute band territory, infusing the songs with new arrangements and elements while staying true to the spirit of the material. Gabriel enthusiasts across the board will be taken by the band’s high octane approach full of drive, determination and energy.” – Anil Prasad, Innerviews

“What Security Project does is accomplish what’s been too long in coming: positioning Peter Gabriel’s music as repertoire. It’s clear that while the band treats Gabriel’s music with no shortage of reverence, it’s also ab sout a more open-ended approach to the music.” – John Kelman, All About Jazz

“Somehow, like Gabriel, the Security Project’s performance strikes the right esoteric balance between the tribal groove of world music and the inscrutable logic of the best progressive rock.” – Peter Lindblad, Elmore Magazine

During this time Cozzi opened up his recording studio “Moscozzi Studio” where he co-wrote and produced the last two SCM albums “Here and Now” and “Small Town”. He has written and produced music for bands, films, commercials, and video games, which let to him meeting and working with Trey Gunn.

David Jameson
Keyboardist/Eigenharpist David Jameson began his music career in the 70’s – when multi-keyboard/synth players became a thing.

At IBM, Dr. Jameson created and managed the Computer Music Center and was elected to the prestigious IBM Academy of Technology. David left IBM to found Digiportal Software and more recently Deskew Technologies where he now co-develops Gig Performer, a recently released audio plugin host that targets the critical needs of live performance/session musicians and which he uses in The Security Project shows instead of carrying around tons of vintage keyboards (for which the other band members are very grateful). In addition to working with The Security Project, David also performs with Beyond The Wall, a Pink Floyd tribute band.

Song: "Trademark" (soundcloud link)
RIYL: Grizzly Bear, Rubblebucket, Bombay Bicycle Club

All about the song:

"Trademark" is both a reminder to myself and to a good friend that in times of chaos & confusion it’s important to embrace the changes the soul experiences. Before anyone else can welcome you as you are and will be, you need to welcome those developments yourself. Once you begin to practice that care, the fog starts to clear up.

All about the band:

dreambeaches is an art rock band based in Buffalo, NY consisting of members Corey Bzibziak (lead vocals, guitar), Jacob Peter (bass, vocals), Gabe Wells (drums), & Andrew Kothen (lead guitar, vocals). Since the release of their first EP ‘Habits’ in 2016 the band has been making their way around the Northeastern US and Canada and will be touring to the Southeast this fall in support of ‘Disappearing Act’. dreambeaches comes from an array of influences including Grizzly Bear, Rubblebucket, Hiatus Kaiyote, Pinegrove, Of Montreal, Bombay Bicycle Club & more.

All about the release:

"Trademark" is the first single off the band’s upcoming six song EP, out 10/13/17 by Admirable Traits Records. Titled Disappearing Act, the band will be touring in support of their new CD on a mid Atlantic tour in October.

The Meier-Budjana Band is a group of superlative guitarists and accomplished musicians, corporately dedicated to creating music which exceeds stylistic and cultural bounds. True sonic explorers, in the most progressive jazz and beyond sense with distinctive ethnic bland of Middle-Eastern and South-East Asian flavors, theirs is a music which is both soulful and cerebral. Embracing a multitude of regional musical dialects from across the globe, MBB speaks in a profoundly unique, original voice – a voice bound by neither convention or preconception. The band is co-chaired by Swiss-born and UK-based Nicolas Meier and Indonesian guitar icon of Balinese descent Dewa Budjana.

Both musicians will have their new studio albums released worldwide in October 2016 on Steve Vai’s Favored Nations label. Nicolas Meier’s album “Infinity” features Jimmy Haslip and Vinnie Colaiuta, and Dewa Budjana’s album “Zentuary” features Gary Husband, Tony Levin and Jack DeJohnette. After touring the world extensively as a member of The Jeff Beck Group, Nicolas Meier is a gentleman who is quickly making the transition from a name that few recognize to “a man who needs no introduction!” In less than two decades of being a professional musician, he has been involved in more than twenty albums encompassing a host of different styles and genres, from jazz to heavy metal, from fusion to classical. Without question, Nicolas Meier is one of the most capable, inventive voices on his instrument in the world, today. Meier performed and recorded with musicians such as Jeff Beck, Gilad Atzmon, John Etheridge, Jimmy Haslip, Vinnie Colaiuta, Pete Oxley, Deidre Cartwrigh, Harry Beckett,Jonathan Joseph among many others.

Fans of Indonesian rock need no introduction to Dewa Budjana; he has long been an iconic figure. His band Gigi has been going strong for more than twenty years now –packing out huge venues and selling millions of albums. In an historical context, Budjana is unquestionably one of his nation’s most famous, beloved musicians. But Gigi represents a fraction of his musical persona. A master composer, arranger and producer, Dewa Budjana has, in just a few short years, amassed a masterful collection of progressive music albums as a solo artist – work which transcends genre, in glorious fashion. He has recorded and performed with musicians such as Peter Erskine, Antonio Sanchez, Joe Locke, Gary Husband, Tony Levin, Vinnie Colaiuta, Jimmy Haslip, Jimmy Johnson, Jack DeJohnette, Chad Wackerman, Bumblefoot, among others. In support of the group’s co-leaders are some equally impressive, legendary talents, the chief of which is renowned bassist, Jimmy Haslip.

A long-time member and co-founder of the modern jazz trailblazers, The Yellowjackets, Jimmy’s resume of support work over the last four decades is a true “who’s who” list, inclusive of the world’s most diverse and celebrated musical artists. Haslip performed and recorded previously with both, Meier and Budjana. Haslip’s battery counterpart is the remarkably sensitive and dynamic drummer, Asaf Sirkis. Asaf and Meier have a musical camaraderie dating back fifteen years. Asaf Sirkis’ is a cognizant style: one which places dynamics on an equal footing with time keeping. His delicate, probing drum work has drawn critical praise, earning him the respect due a truly world-class talent. Rounding out this all-star lineup is an extraordinary talent in his own right: the iconic multi-instrumentalist, and predominantly flutist and soundscapist, originally from Borneo, and one of Indonesia’s busiest session musicians, Saat Syah. Boasting an intuitive, acute presence, Saat’s often-spectacular legato lines and trenchant explorations on custom made bamboo suling flutes provide a presence that’s eloquent and enchanting.
