descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Brooklyn-based composer/percussionist Aaron Siegel, best known in improvising circles for his work with Anthony Braxton, releases his ensemble's first recording, Every Morning, a History. The recording features two compositions: A Diminished Thing (solo piano) and Every Morning, a History (mixed ensemble).

This debut album on Peacock Recordings features Siegel's exploration of transition-less composition. "From a compositional standpoint, transitions pose a troubling dilemma," explains Siegel. "They can be anticipated and are also radically sudden. I wanted to see how eliminating transitional material would affect the listening experience."

Siegel runs "the out-musical gamut, comfortable in contemporary freeish jazz or the most abstract experimental music around," (CityPaper). His most recent recording Memorize the Sky (2007), documents a collaboration with Zach Wallace and Matt Bauder. The Cabinet (2006), a solo percussion CD, was praised as an "exquisite set that has a meditative ease and grace," (The Wire). As a composer, the New York-based chamber ensemble Till By Turning commissioned and performed his Chalk Line (for piano, bassoon, violin, viola and cello). As a performer, he has shared the stage with Anthony Braxton, Fred-Lonberg-Holm, Scott Rosenberg, Jason Roebke, Nate Wooley, Chris Peck, Stephen Rush and Sean Meehan. He is a member of Memorize the Sky, The Anthony Braxton Sextet, White, Blue Yellow and Clouds, The Pavones and Assembly."-Peacock
