descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Human Cry's supremely crafted, elegiac songs offer rare and intimate illuminations, artfully performed with seasoned precision and grace. "Wonderful, sylvan, sprightly, uber-bolangaire, peculiar and smart." Guy Maddin, Canadian film maker"John Southworth always sounds just like John Southworth, no matter how many different musical styles he's explored over the years."-Stewart Mason, Amplifier Magazine



"the first song was written on the day after arriving in the city with a mountain my throat & head soaked in glowing blemishes & blue fatigue all the songs were born there they contain the voice & birch & dew elixir of her royal mount silver drops from her healing cup no other city comes as close to matching nature's rhythm drink the cure from the local fountain & hearts swell to the size of moon tears the first winter was stripped solitary a barefoot statue stood in the snow i boiled the bark & oyster shells drank its black reduction followed stonemasons underground church bells were ringing we kissed without thought i ached knelt forward felt the old dream wrestle with the new life became unspeakable strictly anti-adolescent ritual feminine vast elemental a friend recently told me that all singing is a form of crying...when all is said & done when all is at its end when your every drop of rain has run the circle of cloudhillriversea that's when song=cry & when song=cry then cry=life & when cry=life then life=song & that's pure mathematics such song holds court in the soul unlocking the three golden tears releasing vision beneath the old town negotiating the demands of nocturnal gods defying the idiot drapery & conartistry which seek to lessen its beam for when the song is crying the beam grows bright again praise be the song says the soul"-John Southworth

Artist Biographies:

"Andrew Downing is a Toronto based double bass player, cellist, composer and educator born in London, Ontario in 1973. He plays primarily in the creative jazz scene in Canada, but also performs classical chamber music, improvised music, folk and roots music, and world music. He practices the unusual craft of tuning his bass in fifths an octave lower than a cello. His teachers include Jack Winn, Dave Young, Don Thompson, Shauna Rolston and Joel Quarrington.

His own projects span a wide variety of styles and practices. Most recently, he has begun a collaboration in İstanbul, Turkey with ud (Turkish lute) player Güç Başar Gülle that incorporates Ottoman Classical music in a collection of new compositions for ud, cello, percussion and kaval (a Turkish folk instrument). Their first album Anahtar will be released in October of 2013. He also has a collaborative multi-media project with Canadian songwriter John Southworth and visual artist Yesim Tosuner called Easterween featuring songs written by John and arranged by Andrew for his 7-piece chamber ensemble. He also leads his chamber-jazz ensemble Melodeon, which plays live scores for silent films such as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Phantom of the Opera (with choir), Maciste in Hell, Impossible Voyage and The Shock.

As a composer, Andrew has written pieces for Nordic Folk group Ensemble Polaris, banjo player Jayme Stone, The Vancouver Bach Choir, Ensemble Meduse, Toca Loca and The Prince George Symphony, and has written arrangements for Patricia O'Callaghan, The Gryphon Trio, The Annex Quartet and The Art of Time Ensemble.

He has won two Juno awards, one for his own recording Blow The House Down with his former group Great Uncles of the Revolution, and one with the Vancouver-based group Zubot and Dawson. He has also won two West Coast Music Awards, a Socan Award, and the Grand Prix de Jazz from the Montreal Jazz Festival.

Andrew currently teaches double bass, composition and improvisation at the University of Toronto and has taught at Wilfred Laurier University, the Banff Centre's Jazz Workshop and the Creative Music Workshop in Halifax."
