The A to Z Project
Trumpeter Andrew Boring and Freestyle Wordsmith Zano come together for a one-time performance as "The A to Z Project". This duo combines their individual signature sounds (improvised freestyle rhymes and electronic trumpet effects) with electronic samples and improvised synthesizers to bring you a one-time sonic treat.
Public Buildings is the spontaneous compositional trio comprised of nat slaughter (contrabass or guitar), bryan fielden (drumset), and brian parks (piano or harpsichord). founded in january 2003, the group operates by one unifying principle: that the laws of conservation of energy and matter apply to ideas and conscious thought and that all things elemental to sonic organization, realization, and performance are at all times present and merely brought into relief by the senses noticing them.
Brian Parks is a composer, piano teacher, and j.s. bach piano specialist who has performed large-scale, seminal works of j.s. bach in atlanta, kiawah island (south carolina), houston (the rothko chapel) and wurzurg, germany. he is most known as a contributing participant with 'performances in near-inaccessible environs, private and public spaces,' a collective of performers and minor trespassers whose membership, because of the obscurity of this website, are listed here: jamie shepard, andy ditzler, karen tauches, janet simone parks, nat slaughter iv, daniel clay, ben davis, blake williams, elia eidelman, ben rous, erin wigger (witnesses and accomplices include: pierre ruhe, ronnog seaberg, steve seaberg, angus guberman, bert parks, david brodeur, michael diamond, evan levy, sagor levy, ivy diamond, et al.) brian will be pursuing a graduate master's degree in composition at wesleyan university in connecticut come september. he weighs 10 and one-half stone.
Nat Slaughter, a native atlantan, expatriated from a-town in the fall of 2005 for reasons inexplicable. but his credentials don't lie: this man's work has changed the lives and public spaces of such disparate locales as beijing, guilin, shanghai (china), ulan bator (mongolia) (recordings and speakers for cyclists and chinese natives (2002)), and baltimore, maryland (amplified urination after ingesting large quantities of asparagus (2005)). he is now under the employ of the top architectural firm in manhattan and has bought and sold you ten times over, without your knowledge, consent, or sentence-finishing noun.
Bryan Fielden has mostly recently performed in chicago with people, who if i dropped their names, would set off a wave of public shock that would resonate from independent record store to independent record store until calm was restored. fielden is a founding member of the seminal trio san agustin, a group whose catalog of recordings is available on the table of elements, a label run by a very prominent jeff whose fans include of-age women.
fielden has performed in every major city in europe. nuff. said.
his fluid drumming technique and "incomparable, abyssinian touch" (gramophone, critical plagiarist monthly) have inspired artwork by damien hirsch, matthew barney, richard serra, and donald judd (dead), because we are all inextricably connected.
