Auris + Gino

Auris + Gino: Rub (Public Eyesore)
Label: Public Eyesore    
Released in: USA    

"Auris is an electroacoustic improvisation trio consisting of Eric Leonardson (springboard & electronics), Julia E. Miller (guitar & electronics), and Christopher Preissing (flute & electronics); Gino is percussionist Gino Robair. Rub features three collective improvisations and three duos between Auris members and Robair. Noise-based, pointillistic music, a demanding listen, with very successful moments (especially in "A+G.3") and forgettable ones. On the duos side, the best match-up is with the flutist, making "C+G" the highlight of this overall pretty respectable album. Rub is also downloadable for free from Pan Y Rosas."-François Couture, Monsieur Délire

"Auris is a trio of Eric Leonardson (springboard, electronics), Julia Miller (guitar, electronics) and Christopher Preissing (flute, electronics), guested by Gino Robair (percussion, electronics). This trio is into organic electro-acoustic music. Rub is their first release and resulted from a session at the Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago in 2010. Robair may be the most familiar one of these musicians: founder of the Splatter Trio and owner of Rastacan Records, with an endless list of recordings with improvisers from all over the planet. Eric Leonardson is a composer, radio artist, sound designer, instrument inventor, improvisor, visual artist, etc from Chicago. He has a special interest for unorthodox approaches to sound and its instrumentation with a broad understanding of texture, atmosphere and microtones. Preissing is a composer and improviser from Chicago. Julia Miller works as an electronic musician on the one hand, and as a guitarist on the other. Like here with Auris. An interesting player. On Rub the four engage in some very sensitive, but rough improvisations. Don't let their freaky improvisations mislead you. These musicians know where they are up to. Their vivid abstract sound improvisations really touch upon things. They built dramatic textures, be it very loud or very quiet. A relevant and beautiful work."-DM, Vital Weekly
