"Elliott Sharp is an American multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performer.

A central figure in the avant-garde and experimental music scene in New York City for over 30 years, Elliott Sharp has released over eighty-five recordings ranging from orchestral music to blues, jazz, noise, no wave rock, and techno music. He leads the projects Carbon and Orchestra Carbon, Tectonics, and Terraplane and has pioneered ways of applying fractal geometry, chaos theory, and genetic metaphors to musical composition and interaction.

His collaborators have included Radio-Sinfonie Frankfurt; pop singer Debbie Harry; Ensemble Modern; Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan; Kronos String Quartet; Ensemble Resonanz; cello innovator Frances Marie Uitti; blues legends Hubert Sumlin and Pops Staples; pipa virtuoso Min-Xiao Feng; jazz greats Jack deJohnette, Oliver Lake, and Sonny Sharrock; multimedia artists Christian Marclay and Pierre Huyghe; and Bachir Attar, leader of the Master Musicians Of Jajouka.

Sharp is a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow, and a 2014 Fellow at Parson's Center for Transformative Media. He received the 2015 Berlin Prize in Musical Composition from the American Academy in Berlin. He has composed scores for feature films and documentaries; created sound-design for interstitials on The Sundance Channel, MTV and Bravo networks; and has presented numerous sound installations in art galleries and museums. He is the subject of a new documentary "Doing The Don't" by filmmaker Bert Shapiro."-Elliott Sharp

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Charles K. Noyes and Elliott Sharp have been improvising together and collaborating in a dizzying variety of musical projects for four decades now including such bands as Noyes' Toy Killers and Sharp's Carbon. They are both well known as innovators on their respective main instruments: percussion and musical saw for Noyes and guitars and reeds for Sharp.

On this release, recorded remotely at their respective studios during the time of covid, the listener may be surprised by their use of instruments for which they are not normally known: CKN here concentrates on electric guitars while E# performs on his invented instruments (arches h-line, violinoid, and triple-course bass pantar ) plus analog synthesizers along with mandocello and soprano sax. The music is vivid and saturated with a dark intensity and filled with unusual sounds. It could easily be a soundtrack to an as-yet unimagined sci-fi noir."-zOar Records
