    "After Thursday's concert [15.06.04], there was a little panel discussion where Mary Halvorson, James Fei, and Taylor Ho Bynum
    talked about what they'd learned from Anthony Braxton, and about him as a teacher: He didn't even care if you were enrolled in school,
    he'd teach you just because you wanted the musical knowledge." —Kevin Whitehead

 Colin used to play bass in The Hated who are kind of a legendary DC band. He was visiting New York from Austria where he lives
 and asked to record with us... I know him through his brother tubaist Christopher Meeder, a friend from CMU in Pittsburgh. Colin gave
 the recordings to cut-up sonic editor Jason Forrest who edited all of our Peter Karl recordings into little pieces with Colin's guidance...
 It was Colin's project. I don't think we played a show..." —Kevin Shea 15.11.04

      "Composed in 1998 for E#'s ensemble Orchestra Carbon, SyndaKit utilizes a collection of biological metaphors to create an ever-shifting rhythmic and timbral matrix. Improvisatory and algorithmic but not improvisation, SyndaKit's essence is a transformative organism consisting of 144 composed Cores on 12 sheets divided among the 12 players with a set of simple rules for their use through processes of imitation, addition, recombination, transposition, and mutation. These actions are based on the activities of flocking birds, African drum choirs, cellular automata, hunting packs, and recombinant amino acids." —Downtown Music Gallery

    May 31, 2009 / Angelica Festival, 9:00pm, Teatro Comunale Luciano Pavarotti, Modena, Italy
    Radio 3 RAI Broadcast "Il Cartellone—Radio 3 Suite Jazz", April 27, 2010 (20:40 hours)
     radio introduction [3:55]
    1. Modette & Other Songs [47:47]
     outro [0:57]
     "An unusual project, purposely composed for this festival, focused on mixing the expressionism of Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler with written
     avantgarde and improvisation, adding moments of Morricone's musicality. Modette is actually a theatrical work started in 1981 based on lyrics
     by Allan Graubard. These are supposed to be ‘songs’ interpolated with improvisations, but I really don't get any ideal tracksplit."

    Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris (Dir, Arr, Comp), with Shelley Hirsch (voc) and the texts of Morris, Allan Graubard, Mevlana Rumi,
    Gregory Tate, and Helga Davis; The Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini; and Guests: Shelley Burgon (harp), Mary Halvorson (g),
    Eri Yamamoto (p), J. A. Deane (elec, live sampling), Kenny Wollesen (vib, perc)

    "Thereafter remained some time with her guitar his Pi (ano) nuts to salt.
    Phil Nylund of halfpipe began the Sunday opportunity (before jumping
    into London's Vortex) a recording technology.

    Mixtour (mudoks nr. 014-13115) brings the half-hour snack hearing.
    Spirited be crunchy melodies mix in intuitive harmony. The two-sided
    Arpeggioläufe beat like a zipper into one another the teeth. Bergmann
    whirls Mary's capers—it's anything but a lamb—with einverständigem
    Gusto. Halvorson shows a great mood, and fast-paced trick. Bergmann
    has her [sic] hands full trying to equally wasteful to spread the salt of the
    earth. Some relaxed passages draw breath for more stair sprints, which
    you clearly sounds the fun of shared thoughts rapidity of the fingers.

    This savory highlight in Halvorson's discography also brings the mudoks
    catalog tingle. For limited secretiveness I see no reason."

     "[Wooley] thanked the 40 or so members of the audience for being attentive and told them that it was the largest crowd Crackleknob had ever
     performed before. About 20 minutes in, he asked whether there was time for another number. His reserve felt like a form of boldness. It might help
     to know that Mr. Wooley grew up in a small fishing village in northern Oregon, that he's sometimes considered part of an aesthetic of improvising
     called lowercase, and that he doesn't consider himself an adherent to it." —Ben Ratliff The New York Times June 22, 2010 C9

    • "Artist/composer Christian Marclay (b. 1955) is known for his distinctive fusion of image and sound. Celebrated as a pioneer of turntablism,
      Marclay transforms sound and music into visual and physical forms through performance, collage, sculpture, large-scale installations,
      photography, and video. This groundbreaking Whitney exhibition—activated by daily concerts and continually evolving—explores Marclay's
      approach to the world around him with a particular focus on his “graphic scores” for performance by musicians and vocalists. Visitors to
      the Whitney will be encouraged to mark up a wall-sized chalkboard, with musical staff lines, thereby creating a collective musical score which
      will be performed throughout the run of the show. Other Marclay scores, including the premiere of a new scrolled vocal work forty feet in
      length and three scores conceived as projections, will be continually on view and performed on a regular basis. World renowned musicians
      and vocalists, some of whom have been regular collaborators with the artist for three decades, will interpret a dozen scores, enabling museum
      audiences to experience a less well known aspect of Marclay's varied art practice." —whitney.org/Exhibitions/ChristianMarclay

    Noisey: So what made you want to do this Nina Simone record?
    Jamie Stewart: Well, I was very drunk and feeling incredibly sorry for myself at the time that it crossed my mind to do it. I was on tour with Swans,
    and I played a show that just sucked. And they played, and they were amazing every single night. Michael Gira and I were talking about how much we
    both love Nina Simone, and I was sitting backstage and drinking like an idiot and put on my headphones and started listening to Nina Simone records.
    It is my usual trajectory just to feel bad and just dwell for a long time, but I was listening to Swans sort of bleed into the headphones, playing really,
    really wonderfully and thinking about the difficulties of their very long and checkered career. They have been at it three times as long as I have and are
    only getting better, it would be absurd for me to quit. Nina Simone's music is way technically over my ability, but it seemed like something that if, I was
    gonna force myself not to quit, it had better be with something that was going to be incredibly challenging for me to do.

    How did you pick the songs?
    I'd never been much of a record collector. I usually listen to a small amount of records really excessively, and I only had three Nina Simone records
    [laughs]. But they were three records that, without exaggerating, really changed my musical life. I knew them really well and appreciated them
    tremendously. To be corny, they touched my heart. I think it was smart, if I knew her entire catalog, it would have taken 10,000 years to pick from her
    repertoire. I had like 25 songs to pick from. I just picked ones that I like and that I felt that, as a middle-class white guy, it would either not be absurd
    for me to sing or would be so absurd for me to sing that it could possibly get over.

    How much of the album was orchestrated versus improvised?
    Well, the people who played on it are about the best players that there are. Ches Smith, who did all the arrangements, he has several groups but it's
    the lineup for his own band [on this record]. We did two real quick rehearsals and then recorded it all in one day. They're just motherfuckers, I think
    all of them were first or second takes. I think there was maybe like one edit. They're astounding players. It melted my brain, listening back to it. Ches
    worked on the arrangements for months—a testament to it having worked so well is that he put an incredible amount of time into it. It wouldn't have
    been so easy if the arrangements weren't so brilliant.

    Were you surprised by anything the songs brought out of you when you took on this project and started singing?
    There's no way to say this without sounding like a total douche, but there's a tonality in my singing voice that I had not heard before. That had a lot
    to do with just the range of the songs and the phrasing, it's really different than something I would write myself. And I couldn't do it in my regular
    singing voice, except for maybe one or two of them. So that was surprising. But there was just a sort of very different sound coming out of my
    mouth than I had heard before.

      "The emerging Mary Halvorson Septet has performed a limited number of live engagements and recorded, but, pre-commercial release,
      hasn't been sprung on the new jazz world at large.... She'll be joined on drums by regular collaborator Tomas Fujiwara two days after
      she plays two Canadian festival concerts in his outfit, The Hook Up. In what [she] describes as The Mary Halvorson Septet-Florida,
      she'll employ five Sam Rivers stalwarts..."

      Mary Halvorson paper doll set—What?

      "Commodify the avant-garde and raise funds for the cm5 and the Atlantic
      Center For The Arts simultaneously! After the (relative) success of our
      Peter Brötzmann-inspired Machine Gun Pepper Sauce, the emboldened
      aesthetes at the cm5 present our next premium, again courtesy of the desk
      of our own Jim Ivy. It's the Mary Halvorson "Of Strings and Things..."
      paper-doll set. This limited edition three-sheet set includes accurate
      depictions of Mary's guitars, pedals, and amp. Playtime becomes
      instruction time! Page three includes drummer Tomas Fujiwara and five
      hard-hitters from the Sam Rivers Rivbea crowd.
      Do you admire Anthony Braxton guitarists? The cm5 or Atlantic Center
      For The Arts? Jacques Derrida? Set aside fifteen of your U.S. dollars
      to give and get, citizen philanthropist. Reserve now and pick up your set
      at the concert. Or see your cm5 authorized dealer on Monday, July 1st."

      [www.torinojazzfestival.it/eventi/anthony-braxton-sonic-genome; 35mmofmusic.wordpress.com 15.06.26]


      "Anthony Braxton's Sonic Genome realizes the potential of the improvising orchestra: that magic
      moment before the concert where the swelling sound of the tuning is full of promises that rarely
      are fulfilled by the actual program that will be played.

      At the same time it captures the joyous spirit of the marching band—everybody smiles when a band
      goes by, no matter how good or corny it is. Around the band a community instantly grows.

      Street musicians, buskers, are now keeping music alive in our cities. In the Sonic Genome the rigid
      borders between performers and listeners, stage and audience, are broken and the music flows
      freely around like in a street performance.

      The sound is an exploration of one's own sonic environment, obliterated by canned music funneled
      directly into our ears in order to forget our surrounding. Echoes, reverberations, call and response
      in space help sound proprioception and realization.

      It is a ritual for our times, when traditional rituals largely lost spiritual content and social rituals
      are dominated by a hierarchy of values determinated by profit and business."

    • : : : Doek Festival 2015 : : :



      "The confluence of birthdays of American saxophonist Anthony Braxton (June 4th) and Dutch piano iconoclast Misha Mengelberg (June 5th)
      has been sufficient cause for joint celebrations in the past. This year it spawned a whole festival. While Mengelberg (80) was not present due
      to illness, Braxton (70) was, bringing with him a coterie of young acolytes from the Tri-Centric Foundation. They joined forces with DOEK,
      the Amsterdam-based improvising collective, for six days of performances of members' compositions and spontaneous improvisations..."
      —John Sharpe New York City Jazz Record

      Open rehearsals, talks, interviews and, of course, lots of concerts. The focus will be on the work of Anthony Braxton. The whole festival
      will deal with the boundaries between composition and improvisation and will also feature pieces by Misha Mengelberg and various
      members of Tri-Centric and Doek.

      —Tuesday, June 2
      During the first two days of the Doek festival the musicians will be diving into the improvisational laboratory, discovering each other's
      musical language and playing together in various line-ups.

      —Another source added Taylor Ho Bynum, Michael Moore, and Onno Govaert, but multiple mentions of a "nine-piece" indicate otherwise. —RL

      "Interspersed among these big pieces were five improvising subgroups curated by Doek cornetist Eric Boeren, featuring almost every member
      of the ensemble. They ranged from the unlikely (a sort of loud chamber trio: Vincent Chancey on french horn, tenor sax howler John Dikeman,
      and skronky guitarist Brandon Seabrook) to a lyrical quintet (Bynum, Oliver, alto saxist Michael Moore, bassist Wilbert de Joode and pianist
      Kaja Draksler). And there were two fine improvised quartets. One mixed pairs of regular collaborators—Doek brassmen Boeren and trombonist
      Wolter Wierbos, Tri-Centric's Laubrock and guitarist Mary Halvorson)—that started with fast chatter and quickly turned lyrical. The other quartet
      served up a terrific burst of improvised electronic music, with James Fei on the crackle synthesizer (an eccentric—and rarely heard—device
      developed at Amsterdam's STEIM in the 1970s), and Oscar Jan Hoogland on its tiny cut-rate counterpart, the crackle box (as well as electric
      clavichord); they were buttressed by the band's highly compatible drummers Michael Vatcher and Onno Govaert, who came up with some
      electronic-sounding timbres of their own." —Kevin Whitehead

      "Today is Anthony Braxton's 70th birthday, a fitting occasion for the performance of some of his large-scale pieces... Before the music...
      Taylor Ho Bynum, Mary Halvorson and James Fei will talk about the influence, direct and indirect, that Anthony Braxton has had on them."
      —Kevin Whitehead

    • 15.06.04 - Braxton at 70—Transatlantic Encounters / 8:30pm, Bimhuis, Amsterdam, Netherlands

      First Set—"Falling River Music"
      Tri-Centric Foundation: Anthony Braxton (reeds, Comp), Ingrid Laubrock (ts, ss), James Fei (reeds, elec), Nate Wooley (tp),
      Taylor Ho Bynum (cor), Vincent Chancey (frh), Mary Halvorson and Brandon Seabrook (g), Tomeka Reid (ce), Carl Testa (b, elec)

      "[Braxton] will also conduct some of his classic music for large groups... Rehearsing sections of his boisterously swinging big-band opus
      Composition 92, at first he'd count the music off at a forbidding tempo, then on subsequent passes slow it down to a manageable level.
      ‘Okay—this is going to be fun,’ he said, before moving on to the very different, chamber music-y Composition 56 (first heard under
      a graphic title as track 2 on his milestone album Creative Orchestra Music 1976). Here the time is floating, throughout the course
      of several notated episodes (to be interspersed with improvisations in the concert). Rehearsing Composition 89 with its collage effects—
      a piece ‘three-dimensional rather than linear’—he did his best to keep the interpreters' enthusiasm in check. He directed them to perform it
      ‘in the pianissimo issimo issimo world... Think it terms of transparency; if you can't hear the piano or cello, you're probably playing too loud.
      When indecision comes, default to the pianissimo.’" —Kevin Whitehead

      Second Set—Tri-Centric Foundation + DOEK: Braxton (as, ss, sss, Cond, Comp), Ingrid Laubrock (ts, ss), John Dikeman (ts, bar),

      "I assume that Halvorson's set is the end of the show. She and Smith are on a ‘double solo’ tour, traveling together but playing solo.
      Except tonight. While setting up earlier they overhear Steve and James talking and realize that the Quinn's contingent thinks that
      the guitarist and drummer will be playing together. ‘There was a generous spirit in the house and they responded by doing a third
      set together,’ Steve later says. ‘Everything I've seen about their subsequent shows seems to indicate two solo sets and no more.

      "Halvorson delivered a kind of disclaimer towards the end of her second set: ‘I don't normally play this many sets solo, so I'm going
      to be playing some new stuff for the third set,’ she said. A pause. ‘I'm not sure whether I'm telling you to leave or stay.’ Luckily for those
      who stayed, the third set offered some of the evening's gems, among them a haunting Paul Motian tune and a shapeshifting version
      of Thelonious Monk's ‘Ruby, My Dear.’" —Mark Mahoney

     things that, personally at least, exist outside of my misunderstanding of Marcuse's dialectical circle. We'll give one of those pieces a shot
     on Sunday night and also do some improvising and shoot the breeze with whomsoever would like to show up."
     —Nate Wooley FB posting 16.09.15

    • Thumbscrew Residency at City of Asylum : : : June 12 through June 26, 2017


      Thumbscrew at rehearsal, during their residency at City of Asylum [June 19]. They are creating music for two new albums—one of original
      music and one of covers. They will be previewing the albums in a concert this Wednesday (June 21), City of Asylum @ Alphabet City.

    • : : : The story behind the Thumbscrew concert this Wednesday (June 21) : : :

      "In 2008, Pittsburgh jazz saxophonist Ben Opie and Chatham professor Michael Pestel created ‘Braxton Plays Pittsburgh.’ Mary Halvorson
      was one of the musicians who played in the opening concert at Manchester Craftsmen's Guild. A few years later, in December 2011, Diane
      [Samuels] and I stopped at the Cornelia Street Cafe in New York, and we again heard Mary, playing as part of the Tom Rainey Trio.

      In this smaller ensemble Mary really caught our attention. We were totally floored. We simply had never heard a sound like hers. Being
      in the audience was like being in the eye of an acoustic hurricane. We made it a point to seek her out whenever we were in New York.

      In 2013, inspired by the success of Jazz Poetry Concert, we began to explore the idea of a jazz residency at City of Asylum as a complement
      to COA's visiting literary residencies. We immediately thought of Mary as the perfect musician to launch the residencies. She was one of
      the most inventive (and busiest) musicians we had heard in years, and we thought ‘time off’ might be useful.

      So I wrote Mary and invited her to a two-week residency at COA, for ‘creative time to think and invent without commitments or even a specific
      project.’ Over the winter we spoke several times. Mary explained that much of her music was worked out in ensemble; and because her
      collaborators were in many groups and had complicated touring schedules and other commitments (and even lived in different cities),
      this usually meant that new work was often worked out on the road rather than in dedicated rehearsals.

      At the time, Mary, Tomas Fujiwara, and Michael Formanek (collectively Thumbscrew) were planning to do another album together. Mary told us
      that the best use of her residency would be to have the entire group in residence, that it would be both creatively valuable and a great accelerator
      of the album. We agreed, and they came in the summer of 2014.

      ‘It was amazing,’ Mary said after the residency. ‘Everyone's so busy. Even with my own band it can be like pulling teeth to get one rehearsal
      together. For two weeks we played every day and worked on all the new music. It really helped us to take the band to the next level.’ Thumbscrew
      also recorded the album here on the Northside. Released by Cuneiform Records, it was rated by AllMusic one of the Best Jazz Albums of 2014,
      and the Village Voice called it ‘nothing less than magic.’

      City of Asylum differs from our peers around the world and from other U.S. residency programs by making long-term commitments to artists.
      Exiled writers in our sanctuary program may remain in their Sampsonia Way homes rent-free as long as needed, until they can become financially
      independent. Visiting writers are welcome to return to work on new projects without a formal application process, when we have housing
      available. For example, Oliver Lake has been curating and participating in Jazz Poetry every year since 2005, and he has developed several
      other projects with us, like Jazz House, ‘What is Home?’, and ‘Stoop is a Verb.’

      So when Thumbscrew asked about returning to create and record a new album, we were thrilled. We think you will be also, when they preview their new album in a concert at City of Asylum @ Alphabet City this Wednesday. I hope you can come and join us."
