Michalowski, Piotr / Jaime Rodriguez Matos / Christopher M. Skebo: Dyads (Abzu)
Label: Abzu    
Released in: USA    


"dyads is a set of four improvised duets by three instrumentalists who currently live and play in Southeastern Michigan. The first three feature Michalowski and Rodríguez Matos; the fourth is an extended sound exploration by Michalowski and Skebo.Piotr Michalowski performs on various woodwinds; here he plays soprano & baritone saxophones, alto flute and bass clarinet. For many years he has performed alongside violinist Mike Khoury in duo and in an ensemble named Close Embrace of the Earth. Currently he can often be heard in the Dark Sounds Ensemble and in other gatherings of improvising musicians in Southeastern Michigan. He often plays with visiting improvisers such as the Polish duo Mikrokolektyw. Recent travels have taken him to Europe and to various places in the US, where he has performed with cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, with woodwind players Jon Raskin and Vinny Golia as well as with percussionist Gino Robair.

Jaime Rodríguez Matos plays guitar. He is a newcomer to the Michigan creative music scene. His music is often released under the moniker Rodzmatos. The label Pandafuzz had released two collections of his work in 2011 under that name: Untimely Music and Until the Spirit New Sensation Takes Hold. His electronic work has been featured in the magazine "CNCPTN new sound by concept and design." He performs most often as part of the duo Interstitium, with keyboardist Kenn Thomas, most recently at the 2011 edition of Edgefest in Ann Arbor.

Christopher Skebo plays upright bass, Bb trumpet, concierge bells, and bike horns. He performs with equal skill on French Horn, guitar and flute. Skebo studied music with Roscoe Mitchell, Chris Brown, John Bischoff, and Fred Frith at Mills College and composition with James Hartway and Jon Anderson at Wayne State University. His musical hybrid of composition and improvisation blurs the lines between the notated and the spontaneous. A composer in many mediums, Skebo has written dance music for Wayne State University, Mills College and Rapid Decent Dance Company and has performed and led improviser groups at the Chicago Calling Festival and the Detroit Jazz Festival. In 2011, his musical activities earned him a nomination for "Outstanding Classical Composer" at the Detroit Music Awards. Skebo is the founder of Little Grey Cat Records, a record label with a focus on creative music. He currently teaches and performs in the Detroit area, appearing with his Creative Music Ensemble and often as a member of the Dark Sounds Ensemble and other groups, often in tandem with James Cornish and Piotr Michalowski."
