Featuring sets by Earn, Rale, Aures & Greg Davis
Greg Davis: Born in 1975, Greg Davis grew up in Crystal Lake, Illinois. He studied classical & jazz guitar and composition at DePaul University in Chicago where he received his bachelor’s degree in music in 1999. In 1997, he started his own independent record label, Autumn Records, to release his own music and the music of others. Davis moved to Boston to pursue a master’s degree in composition from the New England Conservatory of Music which he completed in 2001. During this time, he also immersed himself in an independent study of computer based electronic music and became an active live performer. February 2002 saw the release of Davis’ debut album Arbor on Carpark Records of New York City. This marked the beginnings of his career as a professional musician. He has collaborated with a wide range of musicians including Zach Wallace, Joe Grimm, Keith Fullerton Whitman, Jeph Jerman, Tim Barnes, Sebastien Roux, Steven Hess, Chris Weisman, Akron/Family, Megafaun, Ben Vida and many more. Davis is well known for his blend of acoustic instruments with computer / electronic sounds. He continues to explore the possibilities of sound using new technologies and a wide array of instruments from around the world.
MYSPACE: GREG DAVIS
AURES: Aures is a microtonal music group, from Portland, OR. The group consists of John Krausbauer (violin), Thomas Thorson (violin) and Taryn Tomasello (accordion). Aures play amplified acoustic instruments utilizing tuning systems derived directly from the harmonic series, to achieve their aims.
Their compositional-improvisations produce dense and dynamic fields of harmonic interference and reinforcement which are unavailable to conventionally even-tempered Western music. The effect is in equal parts both foreign and familiar, searching for a deep consonance amid a flux of microtonal variations, beating tones, difference tones, and psychoacoustic phenomena. Long durations of the music allows the listener to adapt the ear to these unusual sounds, placing the listener into an interactive sound-field where alternative harmonies begin to emerge.
Featuring opening sets by LA artists EARN & RALE.
The RESONANCE music series is a forum for musicians, listeners and scholars to share, discuss, and collaborate on singular ideas in sound. Alongside lectures and audio installations, the series will focus on providing a showcase for experimental projects and offer an opportunity for composers to develop conceptual pieces or works-in-progress within a live, intimate setting. By bringing together diverse artists exploring various frontiers—from improvisational classical ensembles and avant-garde vocal virtuosos to unique instrument artisans and machine-manipulating noise technicians—RESONANCE encourages a deterritorialization among these practices, in pursuit of possible openings onto something otherwise, unintended and new.
