Bands/Musicians

Collective Groups

 

Anna Homler/Steuart Liebig Duo
An improvising duo, this collaboration with Anna (vocals/toys/percussion) really lets me do a lot of orchestrating - - I use a lot of processing and extended techniques with her. We seem to gravitate towards doing "sonic postcards from alien worlds." Titled Kelpland Serenades, it's out on pfMENTUM, I think it's pretty damned good.

 

Brotulid
Something new starting up with Andrew Pask on woodwinds and electronics, G.E. Stinson on guitars, laptop beats and electronics, and me doing basses, electronics and laptop stuff . . .

 

Bone Structure
A collective   band. Free improv. The band is Gregg Bendian drums/piano, Jeff Gauthier on violins, and G.E. Stinson on guitars/electronics. This band has a CD, Bone Structure, out on Cryptogramophone, and was featured on one track of G.E. Stinson's Vapor.

 

Duo and Trios with Jeff Kaiser
I've played in a few different ensembles with trumpeter/composer Kaiser: as a duo (with both of us doing a lot of electronics processing) and as a trio, first with guitarists Woody Alplanalp and then with G.E. Stinson. No recordings yet, but we're working on it.

 

L. Stinkbug
A collective band. Free improv. The band is Scott Amendola on drums/electronics, Nels Cline on guitars/electronics, and G.E. Stinson on guitars/electronics. This band has a CD called The Allure of Roadside Curios and was featured on one track of G.E. Stinson's Vapor.

 

G.E. Stinson's Splinter Group
This band has been a favorite project to play in and its CD, Blowing Down Blue Sky, is pretty damned cool. It was also featured on two tracks of G.E. Stinson's Vapor.

 

Unique Cheerful Events
A collective band. Free improv. The band was Joe Berardi on drums/electronics, Kaoru on vocals/electronics, and G.E. Stinson on guitars/electronics. A really good band that was sorely under-documented. It was featured on one track of G.E. Stinson's Vapor. (We have some great stuff in the can, but nowhere to put it out!)

 

Vatcher/Liebig/Golia
A one-off recording that Vinny and I did with my friend and amazing drummer, Michael Vatcher. Michael and I both had the same hunch that we should record, so we had someone come down to do a multi-track recording at an unnamed club in Hollywood, California. Free improv. I think there's some amazing interplay considering that we'd never played together as a trio before the evening in question. The disc is out on Red Toucan and is called On the Cusp of Fire and Water.
