“Pleonid” is Stuart Popejoy’s composition for quintet released on Leo Records as LR-783. A single 60-minute piece presents ever-changing textures and moods, as five expert musicians interpret and explore shifting musical structures, contrapuntal motifs and trancelike chordal grooves. The piece was performed live in 2012 at the Firehouse Space in Brooklyn NY, with Sarah Bernstein on violin, Avram Fefer on alto saxophone, Steve Swell on trombone, Stuart Popejoy on electric bass, and Kenny Wollesen on vibraphone and drumset.

“Popejoy points himself towards counterpoint via improvisation and customised software that he has designed making use of braid theory in doing the maths. There’s a real collective heat and sense of exploration that actually gets somewhere throughout this hour-long continuous work … [A] sparkling listen that unfolds into an Ornettian omniverse. Just be good to yourself and go listen!” — Marlbank jazz www.marlbank.net/even-more-dream-weaving/3822-hour-power.html

AVA MENDOZA (b.1983) is a Brooklyn-based guitarist, vocalist, composer and songwriter. Since 2002 she has been active playing er own music and in many different groups. In any context she endeavors to bring expressivity, energy and a wide sonic range to the music. Mendoza has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe and recorded or performed with a broad spectrum of musicians including singer Carla Bozulich (The Geraldine Fibbers, Evangelista), Fred Frith (Massacre, Henry Cow, Art Bears), Jon Irabagon, Mick Barr, Nels Cline, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Weasel Walter and more. Her recordings are available on labels Tzadik, Weird Forest, Clean Feed, NotTwo, Unrock, ugEXPLODE, Resipiscent, New Atlantis, and more.

Friendly critics have called her an “avant-jazz virtuoso” (Brad Cohan, Village Voice), “a wizard on a semi-circle of effects pedals, but… equally adept with FX-less technique,” (Lars Gotrich, NPR). In 2011 she was featured as one of Guitar World‘s “10 Female Guitarists You Should Know”.

THIRD EYE ELECTRIC BAND

April 15, 2016
8:00 pm

Bitches Re-Brewed at the OutToSee Festival 2016

THIRD EYE ELECTRIC BAND plays the music of Miles Davis / Fourth Brew

Friday, April 15, 8pm
192 Front St, New York (South Street Seaport District)

www.outtosee.org

Unsettling, frantic and anti-sentimental, Hans Tammen’s THIRD EYE ELECTRIC BAND – for whom machine oil is mother’s milk – fuse relentless polyrhythmic machinations with ethereal yet roughly sewn soundscapes, revisiting Miles Davis’ music from his Bitches Brew period. Dark, sometimes brooding ensemble passages mix and mingle with tightly woven drum-loops, and extended solo cadenzas build up to a mighty hymn to machine work, music of a metallic nightmare.

Sarah Manning – as
Shoko Nagai – moog
Briggan Krauss – g
David First – sitar
Chuck Bettis – electronics
Dafna Naphtali – electronics
Stuart Popejoy – b
Joe Hertenstein – dr
Michael Evans – perc
Lucas Collins – perc
