"Chris Brown, composer, pianist, and electronic musician, creates music for acoustic instruments with interactive electronics, for computer networks, and for improvising ensembles. Collaboration and improvisation are consistent themes in his work, along with the invention and performance of new electronic instruments and software. He is a founding member of The HUB, the pioneering network music ensemble, and has composed many interactive works for the percussionist William Winant (Iconicities, New World Records.) His trio with Winant and saxophonist Frank Gratkowski were featured on the 2009 Donaueschingen Musiktage. His most recent music explores microtonal tunings, including 6Primes, for piano in 13-limit just intonation, Arcade for string quartet, and Ragamala Chiaroscuro, for wind trio. Recordings are available on New World, Tzadik, Pogus, Intakt, Rastascan, Ecstatic Peace, Red Toucan, SIRR, Leo, and Artifact labels.

"Improbable Transgressions" is a double cd presenting a unique proposal of the internationally acclaimed classical and contemporary percussionist Pedro Carneiro. For his debut recording on Sirr, Pedro improvised nine solo five-octave marimba pieces, each one dedicated to a specific sound artist - and each one of these "tokens" were then sent to their particular dedicatee, with a short humurous note: "please hack me".

Disc "solo marimba improvisations" contains 9 solo for marimba recorded live, with no edits or overdubs. Each Improvisation is an open invitation to that particular artist to explore different modus operandi of their own idiom, using the sonic scope of the improvisation as the sole raw material for their digital audio "hack".

Disc "transgressions" contains 9 hacks/interpretations from artists across a diverse field of musical genres: Convolution Brothers, Chris Brown, Ivan Franco, Brandon Labelle, Stephan Mathieu João Pedro Oliveira, André Sier, Cristian Vogel, Ralf Wehowsky - this disc present the final reworking of their respective solo improvisations.

With an 8 page booklet full of liner notes written by Carneiro, artist Leonel Moura and the sound artists themselves, "Improbable Transgressions" is an exciting double album, featuring collaborative work involving an explosive mix of creative artists working in the field of digital audio processing and experimental music.

Percussionist, composer and conductor, Pedro Carneiro studied in France, England and Italy with David Corkhill, Leigh Howard Stevens and Emilio Pomárico. Internationally acclaimed as one of the leading solo classical percussionists of today, he is a regular guest soloist in prestigious festivals, venues and orchestras throughout five continents. His repertoire spans from Bach, Schumann, Debussy to Feldman, Reich, Carter and Xenakis. He has also been recently involved in several projects including live electronics and cutting-edge technology."-Sirr.ecords
