High Energy Improvisations by 2 highly seasoned improvisors.
Since 2003, the Rumble Trio has been providing low-end improvisational accompaniment to a host of touring and local musicians. The trio was formed in order to bring to the forefront the range of voices that are possible from bass instruments that typically reside in the sonic shadows. Culling a unique assortment of rumblings from a varying arsenal that might include at any given time two double basses, tuba, sousaphone, didgeridoos, musical saw, trombone, modified bugle, and little instruments, the Rumble Trio, along with their guest musicians, have consistently produced music that is beyond conventional classification.
In an effort to wave the low-end flag even higher (or lower, as the frequency may be) for this very special High Mayhem performance, the Rumble Trio will be teaming up with their bottomless brothers, bassdrumbass. Since both groups share a common member, this 3+3=5 collaboration isn’t technically possible, which is appropriate as the vibrations produced by this ensemble are sure to push far beyond what is sonically feasible.
New Mexico’s bassdrumsbass is a freely improvising trio consisting of Jeremy Bleich on electric bass, Milton Villarrubia on drums and Ben Wright on acoustic bass. Although fresh in this combination, each member brings extensive playing and performance experience with which to evolve a shared language in free improvisation. The spontaneous musical connection between the players remains driven to transform a soon to be discovered pallet of sound possibilities into a vibrant and captivating sonic landscape.
Performance Artist and High Mayhem co-counder Dierdre Morris will provide us with another one of her magical pieces. Not to be missed!
