Artist Biographies:

"Dave Rempis was born in Wellesley, Massachusetts on March 24th, 1975. He began his musical studies at the age of 8, inspired by a family friend who played clarinet in local Greek bands, and by Zoot, of the Muppets Band, to pick up saxophone. During high school he performed in his town, district, and all-state bands and wind ensembles, as well as in a jazz combo at a local music school.

In 1993, Rempis began a degree in classical saxophone at Northwestern University with Frederick Hemke. Finding this environment stifling, Rempis quickly ditched the music degree to pursue studies in anthropology and ethnomusicology. As part of these studies, he spent a year at the International Centre for African Music and Dance at the University of Ghana, Legon, studying African music and ethnomusicology. He also continued to perform with many different types of groups, ranging from highlife and reggae bands while in Ghana, to jazz, free jazz, funk, and contemporary music ensembles at home. He graduated from Northwestern in 1997.

Upon graduating, Rempis decided to focus on performing, and in March of 1998 at the age of 22 was asked to replace veteran saxophonist Mars Williams in the well-known Chicago jazz outfit The Vandermark Five. This opportunity catapulted him to notoriety as he began to tour regularly throughout the US and Europe playing clubs, concert halls, and festivals on both continents.

During his tenure with The Vandermark Five, Rempis also began to develop the many Chicago-based groups and international collaborations for which he's currently known, including The Rempis Percussion Quartet, The Engines, Ballister, Rempis/Abrams/Ra, Wheelhouse, The Rempis/Rosaly Duo, and The Rempis/Daisy Duo. Many of these groups have been documented on the Okkadisk, 482 Music, Not Two, Clean Feed, Solitaire, and Utech record labels. Past collaborations have included performances with Paul Lytton, Axel Dörner, Peter Brötzmann, Hamid Drake, Steve Swell, John Tchicai, Roscoe Mitchell, Fred Anderson, Kevin Drumm, Paal Nilssen-Love, Nels Cline, Tony Buck, and Joe McPhee. Rempis has been named regularly since 2006 in the annual Downbeat Critics's Poll as a "rising star" on alto saxophone, and as a "rising star" and "established talent" on baritone saxophone.

Aside from performing, Rempis is also active as a presenter. Since 2002, he's curated a weekly Thursday-night concert series for the Elastic Arts Foundation. The series has featured over 500 concerts by some of the best improvisers from around the world, while maintaining a focus on up-and-coming local musicians. In late 2005, Rempis helped form the presenters' collective Umbrella Music, working with a small group of musicians and presenters in Chicago to provide better playing opportunities for creative and improvising musicians. As part of this group, he organized the annual Umbrella Music Festival from 2006-2014.

Rempis is also one of the main organizers of the indie-rock Pitchfork Music Festival, a 60,000-person event which takes place in Chicago's Union Park every July."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Saxophonist Dave Rempis and percussionist Frank Rosaly share a musical relationship of the once-in-a-generation variety. These two improvisers have worked together for almost twenty years, beginning in 2001 when they met in the basement of the Nervous Center, a divey Lincoln Square café that served as a crucial breeding ground for young improvising musicians in Chicago at that time. From the spark of that first musical encounter, the two went on to work together in countless formations during one of the many "golden eras" of the Chicago jazz and improvised music scene; most notably the Rempis Percussion Quartet, The Ingebrigt Håker Flaten Chicago Sextet, and their longstanding duo pairing. They also became close friends, seeing one another through various relationships, family trials and tribulations, and other life-defining moments. It's the depth and breadth of these shared human experiences that creates a musical affinity which is singular in its intimacy, and its strength.

After fifteen years in the trenches of the Windy City, Rosaly decided in 2016 to relocate to another flat, windswept locale across the ocean, beginning a new life in Amsterdam. The loss of his presence in his adopted hometown reverberated across the scene with a heartsinking thud; a moment of reevaluation for so many musicians who had come to depend on his work ethic, sensitivity, and total dedication to every musical context he took on. His sound helped define a multitude of projects in that era, none more so than the bands he worked in with Rempis. But that enduring relationship wouldn't be shattered by a lack of geographic proximity.

This duo album was recorded live at Elastic Arts in January of 2018, during Rosaly's lone return visit to Chicago since his departure. The two had prepped for it with a short tour in Europe the preceding fall. In it, we hear the joy of two old friends rediscovering each other, catching up on all the new discoveries they've made in their time apart. We also hear them settling into one another like a familiar armchair - relaxed, patient, easy-going, and completely at home.

Their previous duo record, 2009's Cyrillic on 482 Music, featured the raw energy and experimentation of two thirty-something musicians taking the world by storm, chewing up every idea they could. Codes/Myths gives us a more mature, relaxed, and confident musical vision - one informed by the comfort of having worked in the music, and with one another, for so long. With nothing to prove, haste and anxiety are replaced by patience and meditation. The two take the time to examine every ramification of one another's statements, sometimes following the emotion, sometimes poking fun, and often just basking in one another's sound, like an all-too-rare visit to a favorite childhood beach, or secret spot in the woods. This document is more than a record, it's a living illustration of the human as social animal, and a tranparent expression of how intimate that can be."-Aerophonic Records
