This Berlin-based collaboration with sound engineer Roy Carroll performing on electronics and features the trio of Chris Heenan on contrabass clarinet, Adam Pultz Melbye on double bass, and Christian Windfeld on snare drum, percussion & objects, using a reductionist approach to deep sonic improvisation of mysterious origins, in an extended journey fo sound. Mastered by Werner Dafeldecker, the rich quality of sound is heard in virtual sections, as the band builds and subsides to near silence, developing new timbral landscapes in intuitive and informed ways. The use of strong amplification for minuscule sound brings our unexpected harmonics and percussive devices. The music unfolds with patience, and the listener finds themself enveloped in vortexes of sound, or alone in a dark passage where indeterminate obstacles and events face them. Eerie and encompassing, an extremely interesting album.


Artist Biographies:

"Chris Heenan (Washington D.C., 1969) lives in Berlin is an active composer/performer and organizer of experimental music. He performs on alto saxophone, contrabass clarinet and analog synthesizer in contexts ranging from solo to large groups and in various ongoing projects.

He uses these instruments to investigate new musical forms, noise, and improvisation both in his solo work and in collaboration with composers and performers such as musicians, dancers, and visual artists. Heenan has developed a formidable solo voice on his wind instruments, particularly with the contrabass clarinet where he uses extended techniques, often incorporating multiphonics with surprising results, to reveal the subtleties inherent to the instrument.

He performs regularly in the U.S. and Europe, featured on such festivals as Stuttgarter Saxofonfestival, Projektgruppe Neue Musik Festival, Bremen; Improvised and Otherwise, Brooklyn, NY; Experimental Intermedia, New York; and at venues such as Artist Space, New York; Sendesaal Radio Bremen, The Renaissance Society, Chicago, IL and The Santa Monica Museum of Art. He is the recipient of grants from American Composers Forum, Arts International and The Durfee Foundation. Heenan received his MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College in 2004 and from 2004 to 2006 was a fellow-in-residence at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany.

Some of his main collaborators and projects include Flamingo, Nordzucker, Trigger, PIVOT (with Liz Allbee), Michael Vorfeld, Sven Åke Johansson, Alessandro Bosetti, Ute Wassermann, Birgit Ulher, and Splitter Orchester.

Heenan has been active as a curator of musical events and concerts since 2001. In 2004 he founded REIFY, a record label specializing in documenting experimental and improvised music, in addition to co-founding line space line (2002-2005), a new and improvised music series in Los Angeles that produced over 120 concerts and two yearly festivals. In 2007 he was invited to curate a concert at The J Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles: An Evening of Works by Ichiyanagi, Kosugi, Ono and Shiomi as part of the exhibition (Rajikaru!): Experimentations in Japanese Art, 1950-1975."

"Christian Windfeld, b.1983, is a Danish Improviser, Composer, Percussionist and educated soloist from The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark.

Since the age of 19 he has build an international career touring all over Europe, North America and Australia and lived in Stockholm, New York and Berlin.

Windfeld has a minimalist but highly expressive approach to the percussive instruments often reducing his set-up to focus on just one instrument e.g. the snare drum to explore its full potential aiming to transcend the general perception of its capabilities.

As a composer he has created pieces and installations to art exhibitions and cross media publications with writers and visual artists.

Windfeld is featured as a leading figure on more than 30 recordings and have so far recorded two solo albums under the alias FØRSTEPERSONENTAL (FIRSTPERSONSINGULAR) the first released in 2014 and the second, ROTUNDA, in autumn 2016 .

He has received a string of honors and grants most notably the prestigious "Young Elite" fellowship awarded to him by the Danish Arts Council in 2015."
