Dropping Stuff and Other Folk Songs
Free improv with violist Ig Henneman, trumpetist Jaime Branch and flutist Anne La Berge.
A triple LP with a rousing mix of punk, country, spoken word and electro that is a musical family history unlike any other. Six sides of live recordings and unreleased material on 180-gram vinyl.
Phil Maguire plays analog synthesizers and Max patches.
Anne La Berge plays flutes and electronics. They come together through their love of structures that slowly evolve through extended time.
Compositions by Sam Pluta.
This digital download by Carrier Records includes the work Delay/Line for flute and electronics. Delay/Line is a focused study on the effect of simple delays on a gradual glissando from the low to the high range of the flute. Simple in nature, but virtuosic to perform, Delay/Line is a testament to Anne LaBerge’s virtuosity as an electro-acoustic performer and improviser. Delay/Line was commissioned by the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition at Brigham Young University.
Real time open ended improvisation on unfinished musical material through random choices for ensemble and electronics made up of fragmented gestures and shards of skeletal speech. Ensemble MAZE is performing the piece which was recorded live at Splendor in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Design by Isabelle Vigier. Available through Unsounds and the composer.
On December 17, 2015, Lisa Cay Miller gathered some of her Amsterdam colleagues for six hours of recording at Splendor Amsterdam to make this collection of brief improvisations.
