I know, shameless self promotion, but you might want to see this concert! 

We are a sixteen piece electro-acoustic chamber ensemble that engages in real-time collaborative composition. The ensemble is made up of outstanding musicians, from diverse musical backgrounds, who are adept at the art of Conduction, the FluxCrew.

Bruce Orr - bassoon

Mark Harris - alto sax / flute

Paul Mimlitsch - bass clarinet 

Brian Mullins - zhonghu 

Gil Selinger - cello

Katie Harlow - cello

Phil Norman - cello 

Mathew Powelson - contra-bass

Joseph Sabella - vibes

Todd Bilsborough - guitar 

 Farrell Lowe - guitar

Evan Mazunik - keyboard 

Nina Rolle - voice

  

 

  Recently I was a guest on The Present Edge hosted by Gary McBride and we   

 discussed how I came to Conduction through my association with Butch Morris

We begin the program with Conduction # 135 Sheng Skyscraper,  Recorded Live at the 47th

Biennale Musica di Venezia : Teatro alle Tese, Venizia Italy 9/21/03 : Butch Morris, conductor

Before I took up the baton and started Out of Context, my first Conduction band, I wanted to see if I could teach the essence of the Conduction vocabulary in tandem with some graphic scores & actually participate in the ensemble as another player.

3 Hand was a structuring tool I used with my wind sextet Tube Sixty in 1994

 

J.A. Deane : trombone / bass-flute - Ralph Carney : trombone / contra bass-clarinet   Nic Phelps : english & french horns - Andrew Voigt : sopranino sax / soprano flute   Beth Custer : alto & bass clarinets - Steve Deutsch : bass-flute / bass-clarinet  

 Tube Sixty was an attempt to use the Conduction vocabulary without a conductor

3 Hand was a graphic score designed to help us create within specific time-frames

*   There are 20 trio combinations within a sextet - Each player is given a number

*   Each numbered box designates the players in each of the trios (243) x (156)

*   A number continuing through a series of trios means that player continues

*   An "X" indicates that a slow crossfade will take place between two trios

*   Each player plays in 10 of the trios (new instrument every entrance)

*   Time Frame : 20 min = 1 min trios : 3 min 20 sec = 10 sec trios

*   The order of the trios can be shuffled for every performance  

In the end the baton proved to be essential to Conduction and

the focus required in responding to the sonic momentum of

the ensemble is why Butch rarely played in his Conductions.

I chose to follow his lead to keep the music moving forward.
