Anomalous Warmth showcases experimental music from some of the most forward-thinking performers. Running the gamut from free-jazz to prog-rock, the series aims to assemble disparate lineups that share the common thread of improvisation and sonic innovation.
Den Svarta Fanan
Drawing from the playing field of no-wave, hardcore punk, free improvisation, and what may only be deemed ‘Heavy’ music, Den Svarta Fanan summons a music anew. Conceived as an audio therapy session for overcoming social anxiety, Den Svarta Fanan consists of Nonoko Yoshida, Joe Merolla, Weasel Walter, & Ron Anderson. With a nod to nasum as their namesake heeds, this band of veterans and young minds contradictorily conjure up a grand sense of serenity, wherein the listener can sit back, relax, and let procession of the daily grind pass them by with that rare kind of grin of affirmation; knowing, understanding, embracing the finer moments of human progress… Lou Reed & Metallica? What next, John Zorn makes a Christmas record?
Mike Pride’s From Bacteria to Boys
Mike Pride’s From Bacteria to Boys has gone through numerous line-up changes since its formation in 2005, and Pride has now created a permanent quartet that performed together for the first time in February, 2009 at Issue Project Room. Pride is known for his ability to work across a seemingly limitless number of genres and styles – he’s worked with artists ranging from Anthony Braxton to Boredoms to Millions of Dead Cops – and this quartet embraces Pride’s eclecticism. Inspiration for Betweenwhile, their October 2010 album on Aum Fidelity, came from R. Kelly (the album title is a phrase taken from Kelly’s epic Trapped In The Closet) as much as it did Miles Davis’ Milestones and new experimental musics. “I wanted a band that would take the most complex, abstract, esoteric and simple concepts at all times,” Pride claims, “and make an overall sound that was natural.” Saxophonist Darius Jones, pianist Alexist Marcelo and bassist Peter Bitenc have worked with Trevor Dunn, Nate Wooley, Jim Black, Weasel Walters, Daniel Levin, and Jon Irabagon, to name only a few.
Thoughtful Arthur is a group lead by Baltimore-born saxophonist and composer, Eric Trudel. This group is both a compositional and improvisatory project, seeking to explore the creation of compositions that inspire improvisation. Thoughtful Arthur includes several close musical acquaintances from Baltimore, as well as several newer collaborators. Members of the group have performed or recorded with Michael Formanek, Mary Halvorson, Dave Ballou, Darcy James Argue, Ellery Eskelin, and others. All members of Thoughtful Arthur are now based in Brooklyn, New York.
Meticulously balancing a thin line between melody and chaos, Daphne Du Maurier has a penchant for jagged angles and gradually expanding mazes of sound that obfuscate the boundaries of composition and improvisation. A brutal and muscular document, Their first album captures the raw energy the power trio has nurtured through intense live shows and demanding group development.
