Adelante: Trio consisting of Paul Mimlitsch, Jody Janetta, and Dan Osterweil
One approach Paul uses utilizes various signal processors and looping devices to create evolving collages of sound ("soundscapes") that serve as both back-drops to original compositions and as stimuli for further exploration/ improvisation. The textures and moods created along this stream of consciousness journey can range from ambient/ meditative to jagged/unsettling, from "straight ahead" to "out". Jody has been a professional musician and educator for the past 30 years. Much of Jody’s performing revolves around his first loves: Jazz and Free Improvisation, in which he performs on both Drum Set and Hand Percussion (Tabla, Djembe, Darbuka, Timbales, Congas, Bongos, etc.). Jody is the founding member of Adelante, whose compositions fuse elements of Jazz, World, Ambient/Electronic, and 20th Century Classical forms. Dan Osterweil is a multi-instrumentalist/ composer who is featured in Adelante, on Saxophones (7 types) and Flutes (including Recorders and stone flutes). Dan studied and performed at The Creative Music Studio with Don Cherry, Anthony Braxton, Jack DeJohnette, George Russell, John Cage, Allen Ginsburg, and others. http://hometown.aol.com/pmimlitsch/index.html, http://members.aol.com/jodanpaul/adelante.html
Anti:Clockwise: About his own breed of music, entitled "Uglient," Anti:Clockwise writes, "…as in real life mistakes are made. once sampled these lapses can never be ignored. they return again and again until eventually they're woven into the fabric of the whole and assimilated…uglient is the melding of the carefully chosen and wantonly blurted out thrown together by misshapen fate or lackluster luck. uglient is the walkman headphones guy on the subway, singing very loud and very sharp off the mark, oblivious… written anew at every show..." http://www.Tensionheadache.org
Mindwarp Pavillion: Mindwarp Pavilion is synthesist David Lunt (Pretty Poison, Nightcrawlers) and Tim Larsen on bass and synths. Together, they perform loop based techno music with Ambient/Space passages. Tying together the rhythms which they've dubbed 'Space and Bass', their music is driven from pop culture which includes humor and interpretation of some classics from the 50's to the 90's.
+Performance art using everything and the kitchen sink, from The Great Quentini. What more can we say? Everything is sacred and anything is fair game for this 20th Century alchemist. Barbies, nature, political idiosyncrasies, invasions of the world, it's all there.
