Rose, Simon & Paul Stapleton: Fauna (pfmentum)
Label: pfmentum    
Released in: USA    


"The Bonsai Sound Sculpture (BoSS) is a portable modular musical instrument (Paul Stapleton and Neil Fawcett, 2010) combining a repurposed turntable, DIY electronics, amplified metallic percussion and strings."-pfMENTUM

"Simon Rose is an alto saxophonist working in the area of free improvisation. He performs in settings from solo to large groups. During the mid 90's he established Club Orange with tenor saxophonist John Grieve. A fortnightly, then weekly club for free jazz and improvised music in north London. It quickly became a venue where just about everyone from the improvised music scene in the UK as well as some from Europe and North America could be heard. The trio 'badland' Simon Rose alto sax, Simon Fell double bass and Steve Noble drums (initially Mark Sanders), have toured extensively, had three albums released and a number of radio sessions including one for BBC Jazz on 3. Influences are broad and as well as European and American ideas relating to free improvisation (from those such as Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Peter Brotzmann, Han Bennink) he is also interested in musical ideas on particularly wind and especially reed instruments as used historically throughout the world and particularly in Asia."-Simon Rose website

"Paul Stapleton is a sound artist, improviser and writer originally from Southern California, currently based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Paul designs and performs with a variety of modular metallic sound sculptures, custom made electronics, found objects and electric guitars in locations ranging from experimental music clubs in Berlin to remote beaches on Vancouver Island. He is currently involved in a diverse range of artistic collaborations including: performance duo ABODE with vocalist Caroline Pugh, interdisciplinary performance group theybreakinpieces with Nick Williams and Mona McCarthy, improvisation duo with saxophonist Simon Rose, networked installation design with Tom Davis, Eric Lyon's Noise Quartet, and the DIY improvisation quartet E=MCH. Since 2007, Paul has been lecturing at the Sonic Arts Research Centre (Queen's University Belfast), where he teaches and supervises MA & PhD research in performance technologies, interaction design and site-specific art."-Paul Stapelton Soundcloud Profile
