Dark Blue World: Dark Blue World (Drip Audio)
Label: Drip Audio    
Released in: Canada    


"Showcasing unconventional rhythmic textures and an uncompromising approach to music, DarkBlueWorld constructs songs that are sophisticated and direct in their lyrical and musical conception, speaking with truth, courage and conviction. Often acerbic and darkly satirical, DarkBlueWorld's music is emotionally layered with subtly complex harmonic and rhythmic turns. Their culturally engaged, profoundly melancholic songs intelligently communicate the complexities of human experience, combining artful simplicity, originality and inherent beauty.

DarkBlueWorld's epic sound has been noted for its paradoxical nature, simultaneously hypnotic and sullen: "blending disturbing lyrics with beautiful melodies... breathing sadness and celebration in the same breath", at times "a thrilling noise assault of feedback and percussion" [Cokemachineglow.com].

Their unique "alchemical magic" is completed by Elizabeth's "lushly dismal narratives", ranging harmonically from "a macabre growl to a keening shriek" with "superior range and color" conveyed by her "cigarette-rough voice" [CD of the Week, JunkMedia]. "These are the forlorn regions where DarkBlueWorld will take you, and the voyage wont be gentle; there is a deep sense of command within its drama." "-Drip Audio

He has appeared at all of the major jazz festivals across Canada, the Jazzfest Berlin, Chicago Jazzfest, New York's Knitting Factory, Vienna's Let's Cool One Chamber Jazz Festival, and at prestigious venues in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. He has performed and recorded with many leading international artists including John Zorn, John Medeski, Han Bennink, Marc Ribot, Wayne Horvitz, Butch Morris, Bobby Previte, Marilyn Crispell, George Lewis, and Canadian jazz legend Claude Ranger. His inter-disciplinary work includes composition, performance and sound design for theatre, spoken word, film, and dance."
