Artist Biographies:

"Though the point of reference for many remains the iconic band Henry Cow, which he co-founded in 1968 and which broke up more than 30 years ago, Fred Frith has never really stood still for an instant.

In bands such as Art Bears, Massacre, Skeleton Crew, Keep the Dog, Tense Serenity, the Fred Frith Guitar Quartet, Eye to Ear, and most recently Cosa Brava, he has always held true to his roots in rock and folk music, while exploring influences that range from the literary works of Eduardo Galeano to the art installations of Cornelia Parker.

The release of the seminal Guitar Solos in 1974 enabled him to simultaneously carve out a place for himself in the international improvised music scene, not only as an acclaimed solo performer but in the company of artists as diverse as Han Bennink, Chris Cutler, Jean-Pierre Drouet, Evelyn Glennie, Ikue Mori, Louis Sclavis, Stevie Wishart, Wu Fei, Camel Zekri, John Zorn, and scores of others.

He has also developed a personal compositional language in works written for Arditti Quartet, Asko Ensemble, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Ensemble Modern, Concerto Köln, and ROVA Sax Quartet, for example. Fred has been active as a composer for dance since the early 1980s, working with choreographers Bebe Miller, François Verret, and especially long-time collaborator and friend Amanda Miller, with whom he has created a compelling body of work over the last twenty years.

His film soundtracks (for award-winning films like Thomas Riedelsheimer's Rivers and Tides and Touch the Sound, Peter Mettler's Gambling, Gods, and LSD, and Deborah Kaufman and Alan Snitow's Thirst, to name a few) won him a lifetime achievement award from Prague's "Music on Film, Film on Music" Festival (MOFFOM) in 2007. The following year he received Italy's Demetrio Stratos Prize (previously given to Diamanda Galas and Meredith Monk) for his life's work in experimental music, and in 2010 was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Huddersfield in his home county of Yorkshire.

Fred currently teaches in the Music Department at Mills College in Oakland, California (renowned for over fifty years as the epicenter of the American experimental tradition), and in the Musik Akademie in Basel, Switzerland."

"I Dream of You Jumping is a live recording from the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville. On May 21, 2000, legendary avant-garde guitarist Fred Frith, theatrical percussionist Jean-Pierre Drouet, and French new jazz clarinetist Louis Sclavis played an extended 48-minute improvisation, followed by a shorter encore. Their rock, world, and jazz backgrounds met with mixed results. Frith chose a delicate approach, with his electric guitar remaining below the average amount of decibels produced, and often adopting folkish stylings. Sclavis jumped from post-bop licks to East European scales and avant-garde bubblings. Drouet used mainly small objects, bells, and hand drums. He often sounds like he's playing above the improvisation and not taking a serious interest in it, an impression reinforced when he resorts to his voice. "There Are Great Stories, We Must Lift Them" offers nice moments, mostly in its first 15 and last five minutes (there is a delectable kind of flamenco dance happening at the end). The middle part finds Frith and Sclavis trying desperately to find something to cling to among Drouet's ramblings. On "Will Remain Always," Frith gets a brighter spotlight, but once again the improv does not soar very high. Not an essential item for either Frith or Sclavis fans, I Dream of You Jumping remains a honest, if not exciting, performance."-François Couture, All Music
