Spill Plus is (prepared) pianist Magda Mayas and drummer Tony Buck (Spill) with double-bassist Damon Smith, using extended language, unusual preparations and objects to create a unique, intricate, and quietly powerful approach to free improvised music.
Mayas, Magda / Damon Smith / Tony Buck
Released in: USA
"This disc, which was recorded in 2010 at 1510 Studios in Oakland California, provides a prime example of how an existing duo (Mayas and Buck) can meet with another musician (Smith) to arrive at something new, unique, and quietly powerful.
Pianist Magda Mayas continues to develop a unique vocabulary using preparations and objects to explore textural, linear, and fast moving sound collages. According to one of her teachers, Georg Graewe, "I was very lucky in having several extremely talented students. Magda Mayas was one of them and has turned out the most determined, original, and internationally active of them all. She's definitely found her own voice."
Double-bassist Damon Smith's music is rooted in the tradition of "free jazz"; however, he is very interested in all of the manifestations of free improvised music (jazz rooted or not!) around the world. His live and recorded efforts focus on continuing and expanding the possibilities of the double-bass and instant composition.
Drummer Tony Buck is regarded as one of Australia's most creative and adventurous exports, with vast experience across the globe. As a drummer, percussionist, improviser, guitarist, video maker, and producer, he has been involved in a highly diverse array of projects. However, he is probably best known around the world as a member of the trio called The Necks.
This subtle and supple recording, with liner notes from virtuoso bassist James Ilfengritz, is certain to lure you in to explore its myriad of details and innovation for some time to come."-Nuscope
