"Don't worry. Not being too well versed in German, I was a little leery of the translation of the group's name too. But it's simply "Large Departure", an octet comprised of Serge Baghdassarians (electronics), Boris Baltschun (electronics), Chris Brown (piano, electronics), Tom Djll (trumpet), Matt Ingalls (clarinet), Tim Perkis (electronics), Gino Robair (analog synthesizer) and John Shiurba (guitar). Those familiar with theses names might have a fair inkling of what to expect though, for myself, I found the group pushed things a bit further in the direction of non-hyperactive improvisation than I might have thought, a good thing for this listener.

This first airship to California alights in a gentle field of clicks and rustles, the acoustic instruments active in areas well away from what their designers intended, the electronics emitting soft counterpoint. As with most of the disc, to the extent the musicians resist idiomatic tropes, including those of free improvisation, the result is quite engaging. Though such gestures do seep in on occasion, by and large Grosse Abfahrt is successful in crafting a convincing, natural music, no mean feat for a mid-size ensemble.

Artist Biographies:

Boris Baltschun was born in 1974 in Hansestadt Bremen, Germany and is a improvisor, composer and sound artist. He is known for his work with Serge Baghdassarians in Splitter, and the trio Baghdassarians / Baltschun / Beins.

-Squidco 4/19/2017

"John Shiurba is a composer and guitarist whose musical pursuits include improvisation, art-rock, modern composition and noise. Shiurba has recorded and toured the U.S. and Europe as a member of the bands Eskimo, The Molecules and Spezza Rotto, as a member of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Anthony Braxton's ensemble and the SFSound Group, and as an improvisor.

Shiurba has conducted the premieres of his compositions at ODC in 2005 ("Moon Cycle" for SFSound) at New Langton Arts in 2002 ("Triplicate") and at SFAlt in 2002 ("5x5 1.4" for SFSound). Shiurba was invited to play at the Seattle Improvised Music Festival in 1998, at the High Zero Festival in Baltimore in 1999, at the SFAlt Festival in 2004 and at the Olympia Experimental Music Festival in 2002 and 2004, and at the Push International Performing Arts Festival in Vancouver in 2007.

As a guitarist Shiurba has developed a unique and personalized approach to the guitar. Through the use of extended techniques and unusual preparations, he expands the traditional sound range of the instrument, producing stunning, often unrecognizable results. Cadence Magazine calls Shiurba a 'wildly creative guitarist... anti-jazz, anti-everything else, yet utterly compelling.'"
