Label: Creative Sources
Released in: Portugal
Sparks (Peter Evans and Tom Blancarte) has been playing together since 2005. From the beginning of the formation of the duo, they have been constantly working to push their own boundries of density and speed of interaction while freely improvising. They have performed extensively in New York City and the U.S., and in 2008 will embark on their second tour of Europe. Since their formation the duo has performed both as a self-contained unit and as part of a larger group. Their first (self-titled) CD has just been released by Creative Sources. Later in 2008 they hope to assemble a Sparks Orchestra....
Peter Evans has been a member of the New York musical community since 2003, when he moved to the city after graduating Oberlin Conservatory. Peter currently works in a wide variety of areas, including solo performance, chamber orchestras, performance art, free improvised settings, electro-acoustic music and composition. As a performer, Evans has been working to break through the technical barriers of his instrument and enjoys playing with steady configurations of improvisers; each band explores a specific concept or style as much as possible. Current bands include the Peter Evans Quartet (with Brandon Seabrook, Tom Blancarte, & Kevin Shea), Moppa Elliott's terrorist bebop band Mostly Other People Do the Killing, the hyperactive free-improvisation duo Sparks (with Tom Blancarte), the free-jazz quintet Carnivalskin (with Klaus Kugel and Bruce Eisenbeil), the Language Of with Charles Evans, duos with trumpeter Nate Wooley and saxophonist Dave Reminick, the New York Trumpet Ensemble, as well as a sustained interest in solo performance.
Tom Blancarte is a bassist, improvisor and composer living and working in New York City. He has performed his music throughout the United States and Europe. He plays in the improvising trio Totem with Bruce Eisenbeil and Andrew Drury, Dave Smith's Who Put The Bad Mouth On Me , the Peter Evans Quartet and in various ad hoc combinations."-Spark MySpace Page
