The trio of trumpeter Peter Evans, electric bassist Tim Dahl, and drummer/percussionist Mike Pride have played together since 2010, crossing the boundaries of improvisation, composition and rock in dynamic genre-defying music intended to be played loud.
Evans, Peter / Tim Dahl / Mike Pride
Pulverize The Sound
Label: Relative Pitch
Released in: USA
"Pulverize the Sound is a collaborative trio featuring Peter Evans on trumpet, Tim Dahl on electric bass/electronics, and Mike Pride on drums and percussion. The trio has been playing in NYC since 2010 and works towards a relentlessly experimental approach to composition, improvisation and timbre and plays pieces written and arranged by all three members. The music sits well outside of any recognizable genre, and includes but is not limited to dense, precisely executed scores, harsh walls of sound, silence, improvisation and repetitive loops. Pulverize the Sound have formed an aesthetic divorced from the usual practical considerations of a band remarkable even for its three members."-Roulette

"Peter Evans is a trumpet player, and improvisor/composer based in New York City since 2003. Evans is part of a broad, hybridized scene of musical experimentation and his work cuts across a wide range of modern musical practices and traditions. Peter is committed to the simultaneously self-determining and collaborative nature of musical improvisation as a compositional tool, and works with an ever-expanding group of musicians and composers in the creation of new music. His primary groups as a leader are the Peter Evans Quintet and the Zebulon trio. In addition, Evans has been performing and recording solo trumpet music since 2002 and is widely recognized as a leading voice in the field, having released several recordings over the past decade. He is a member of the cooperative groups Pulverize the Sound (with Mike Pride and Tim Dahl) and Rocket Science (with Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and Sam Pluta) and is constantly experimenting and forming new configurations with like minded players. As a composer, he has been commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Yarn/Wire, the Donaueschingen Musiktage Festival, the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Program, and the Doris Duke Foundation for the 2015 Newport Jazz Festival. Evans has presented and/or performed his works at major festivals worldwide and tours his own groups extensively. He has worked with some of the leading figures in new music: John Zorn, Kassa Overall, Jim Black, Weasel Walter, Levy Lorenzo, Nate Wooley, Steve Schick, Mary Halvorson, Joe McPhee, George Lewis, and performs with both ICE and the Wet Ink Ensemble. He has been releasing recordings on his own label, More is More, since 2011."-Peter Evans Website (http://pevans.squarespace.com/about/)

As a bass player he is notable for unique style and technical savviness. Clifford Allen of Tiny Mixtapes' wrote "Tim Dahl [...] approaches his well-worn axe with a battery of pedals and loops, combining determinate speed with murkier sonics to create a landscape not unlike a harsh, speed-freak variant on Hugh Hopper."
Dahl currently lives in Brooklyn and is an active member in the music scene there."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Dahl)
