Siegel, Aaron

Science is Only a Sometimes Friend

Siegel, Aaron: Science is Only a Sometimes Friend (Lock Step Records)

A work for eight glockenspiels and organ, a beautiful percussive work in the vein of Reich and Glass that creates hallucinatory illusions in sound as the piece progresses, testing "the science of attention and the counterpoint of daydreams".

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Science is Only a Sometimes Friend is scored for eight glockenspiels and organ. The constant chiming of the glockenspiels creates a halo of harmonic activity around the performers that shifts depending upon the location of the listener. This mysterious whistle is anticipated, yet oddly vague, sometimes more present and other times hidden. The piece tests the science of attention and the counterpoint of daydreams."-Lock Step Records



"Aaron Siegel's inquisitive and playful work represents a personal vision of how we live with and respond to the sounds in our world. Upcoming concerts include a performance of Science is Only a Sometimes Friend as part of the Sonic Frontiers Festival in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and a performance of excerpts from Brother Brother by Wild Up as part of The Industry's First Take initiative in Los Angeles. Percussionist Jonathan Ovalle premiered his Dioramas for Prepared Vibraphone in Fall 2012 and Experiments In Opera premiered his new monodrama, The Collector, in February 2013 as part of its New Shorts concert. Siegel has also partnered with Mantra Percussion Ensemble and The Young People's Chorus of New York City for performances at the Music at First Series, and the 92nd Street Y . His CD Science is Only a Sometimes Friend for eight glockenspiels and organ was released in May 2011 on LockStep Records and hailed as "one continuous ecstatic sonic event," and as one of the best records of 2011 by Time Out New York.

In addition to his work as a composer, Siegel has performed with Memorize the Sky, Anthony Braxton and Robert Ashley. His work can be found on numerous recordings including Cabinet for solo percussion and Every Morning, a History for chamber ensemble and solo piano. Siegel is one of the co-founders of Experiments In Opera and is on the education staff at Carnegie Hall."-Aaron Siegel website

Artist Biographies:

"Mike Pride: Percussionist • Composer • Vocalist • Visual Artist

Born and raised in Southern Maine, but based out of New York City since 2000, Mike Pride currently performs solo, leads modern-jazz quartet From Bacteria To Boys, the 7-drummer installation-band Drummer's Corpse, and the MDC piano trio I Hate Work. He also co-leads the ensembles Pulverize The Sound (w/ Peter Evans and Tim Dahl), and Period (w/ Charlie Looker and Chuck Bettis). Pride is renowned for his ability to excel in a wide range of genres and ensembles. He has worked with everyone from improvised music icon Anthony Braxton to punk legends Millions Of Dead Cops, toured extensively on four continents, appeared on more than 100 recordings, and is currently touring the world opening for comedian Amy Schumer with Jason Stein's Locksmith Isidore.

A short list of his collaborators includes Mick Barr, Tim Berne, Boredoms, Eugene Chadbourne, Nels Cline, Andrew D'Angelo, Trevor Dunn, Dynamite Club, Peter Evans, Charles Gayle, Milford Graves, Drew Gress, Mary Halvorson, Curtis Hasselbring, Nona Hendryx, Jon Irabagon, Brad Jones, Haino Keiji, Kirk Knuffke, George Lewis, Frank Lowe, Bill McHenry, Tony Malaby, Sam Mickens, Butch Morris, Joe Morris, William Parker, Marc Ribot, Matana Roberts, Herb Robertson, Jamie Saft, Sonny Simmons, Craig Wedren, Nate Wooley, Otomo Yoshihide and John Zorn.

Pride's versatility doesn't end with his eclectic résumé as a popular sideman and leader/co-leader of many active ensembles spanning the worlds of modern-jazz, avant-rock, noise and doom metal improv. He is also a busy educator and clinician, a soundtrack composer for TV shows, video games, podcasts, independent films, and websites, and an experienced and exhibited visual artist.

Mike proudly uses Yamaha Drums & hardware, Vic Firth striking implements, and Humes & Berg Cases."
