Artist Biographies:

"Chris Pitsiokos (b. 1990) is a saxophonist, composer, and improviser.

Chris has had the opportunity to perform/collaborate with Lydia Lunch, Tyshawn Sorey, Peter Evans, Kevin Shea, Brian Chase, Henry Kaiser, Mick Barr, Marc Edwards, Brandon Seabrook, Paul Lytton, Tim Dahl, Philip White, Guerilla Toss, C. Spencer Yeh, Ikue Mori, Nate Wooley and Weasel Walter. Chris has performed throughout Europe, Japan, Australia, and the US. His records can be found on Clean Feed, New Atlantis, One Hand Records, Carrier Records, Ug Explode, and his own imprint, Eleatic Records. In addition to performing and composing music, Chris was a long time DJ at WKCR-FM and has been producing concerts in Brooklyn and Manhattan for four years."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

In the spirit of the Downtown NY legacy, saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos' LP merges forms of jazz, rock and experimental music in a demanding but compelling album that refuses to acknowledge boundaries. Developed with NY guitarist Rick Eye, who performs on four of the tracks, the album is often darkly electric with spoken word sections guiding the music. Pitsiokis performs on alto & baritone sax, harmonica, electric bass, guitar & drums, electronic instruments & voice, showing the breadth of his interests and abilities. Drummer Jason Nazary performs on drums for three tracks, two of which Pitsiokis titles as "Journals" one the "Burden of Solidity" and the other "The Burden of Memory". Bookending the album are solo works by Pitsiokis, the first an invocation in the style of his extreme sax solo work, performed as a virtual duo; the final piece a wordless song over strumming guitar work performed by Pitsiokis. A fascinating and unique release from an artist presenting a wide range of interests.
