Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Profession Reporter - the reference to Michelangelo Antonioni`s 1975 film of the same name is entirely deliberate and for you to figure out - is the latest in a series of works, following on from Warburton`s Walks series and Compendium Maleficarum III (with Frederick Farryl Goodwin), that seeks to further break down the already fragile barriers separating composition and improvisation, natural (field recordings) and man-made (improvised) sound. Sourced from recordings made in Morocco in three different locations at three different times of day - morning, midday, evening - and extracts from live improv concerts in France, featuring Kyle Bruckmann, Bertrand Denzler, Greg Kelley, Jean Sébastien Mariage, Bruno Meillier, Bhob Rainey, Fabrizio Spera and Warburton himself - it`s voyage of discovery across space and time for composer and listener alike.

After studies at Cambridge University and a Harkness Fellowship to pursue a doctorate in Composition at the Eastman School of Music (Rochester NY), Dan Warburton settled in Paris in 1988. In 1992 he was awarded the Lili Boulanger Prize for Composition, and subsequently was commissioned to write for the Composers Ensemble (UK) and the Newt Hinton Ensemble (NL). Since 1997 he has been Editor in Chief of the Paris Transatlantic web magazine (www.paristransatlantic.com), and also writes regularly for The Wire (UK) and Signal To Noise (US). As a performer he has recorded with Jean-Luc Guionnet, Edward Perraud, François Fuchs, Bruno Meillier, Eric La Casa, Nikos Veliotis, Fred Blondy, Martine Altenburger, Jean Sé Mariage, Arthur Doyle and Reynols, for labels including Tzadik, Wergo, Leo, Ayler, Chloe, Absurd, Durtro, SMI, Crouton, Meniscus, Creative Sources, Not Two. He has also performed with John Butcher, Hans Tammen, Radu Malfatti, Kyle Bruckmann, Scott Rosenberg, Greg Kelley, Bhob Rainey, Tetuzi Akiyama, Daniel Erdmann, Bertrand Gauguet, Bertrand Denzler, Pascal Battus, Alan Courtis, Aaron Moore; Alan Licht, Aki Onda, Alex Bellenger and Jac Berrocal."-Aural Terrains

"Greg Kelley began studying the trumpet at age 10. He attended the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, where in addition to studying the Conservatory curriculum, he also immersed himself in a deep study of avant- garde and experimental music, eventually coming to the conclusion that his musical focus fell outside of the academic sphere. After his studies, Kelley moved back to his native Massachusetts, quickly insinuated himself into the local avant-garde circles and soon commenced a period of intense travel and collaboration, bringing him across the United States, throughout Europe, Japan and South America.

He has appeared on over 60 albums and despite a more limited travel schedule, he still manages to play in a number of groups including Nmperign (as abstract improvisatory duo and as horn section for ex-Galaxie 500-ers Damon & Naomi), Heathen Shame, the undr quartet and the BSC, among others.

Other collaborators have included Jandek, Keiji Haino, Donald Miller (Borbetomagus), Anthony Braxton, Kevin Drumm, Christian Wolff, Pauline Oliveros, Joe McPhee and Lionel Marchetti. In addition to playing the trumpet,

Kelley has also recorded music using electronics and musique concrete elements, sometimes utilizing trumpet based sound sources, other times not."

"Bhob Rainey is an award-winning composer / performer, saxophonist, and sound designer. He holds a Masters in Music Composition from New England Conservatory ('97), where he studied with iconoclastic microtonalist Joe Maneri, jazz legends Paul Bley and Ran Blake, and the mathematically gifted composer Pozzi Escot.

In 1998, with trumpeter Greg Kelley, Rainey founded the duo Nmperign, which was highly influential in an emerging phase of non-idiomatic improvisation often referred to as "lowercase" or "EAI" (Electroacoustic Improvisation). In 2000 he founded The BSC, an improvising large ensemble, in which he developed techniques for an improvisational discipline that were eventually outlined in his 2011 publication, Manual. Throughout the late 1990's and early 2000's he performed globally and collaborated with numerous improvisers across generations, including Axel Dörner, Andrea Neumann, Günter Müller, Michel Doneda, Lê Quan Ninh, and many others.

By the mid-2000's, while continuing to work in the realm of improvisation, Rainey began to produce electronic and algorithmic works. He spent five years collaborating with German composer Ralf Wehowsky (RLW) on the 2007 release, I don't think I can see you tonight, which, along with Nmperign and Jason Lescalleet's Love Me Two Times (2006), established him as a formidable electronic composer who synthesizes streams of Musique Concréte, computer music, and improvisation.

Throughout his career, Rainey has sought out cross-discipline collaborations, working especially with theater makers and choreographers. Since 2012 he has worked with theater company New Paradise Labs, composing for The Adults, which premiered at the 2014 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, and O Monsters (2016). He created the soundtrack to Leah Ross's 2013 film, Levitate, which premiered that year at the Rooftop Film Festival in New York City, and he performed live in Jungwoong Kim's and Marion Ramirez's site-specific dance work, Capsized, at the National Asian American Theater Festival in Philadelphia in 2014.

Rainey was awarded the Pew Fellowship in the Arts in 2013, and in 2014 he received a Subito grant from the American Composers Forum to complete a multimedia project with filmmaker Catherine Pancake. He is currently working with New Paradise Laboratories on a musically-driven follow up to O Monsters, with Jungwoong Kim on a multimedia dance installation, and with Leif Elggren and CM Von Hausswolff on the inauguration of the "Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland Embassy" in Philadelphia.

To date, Rainey has over 30 releases as a leader or co-leader."
