"Damon Smith studied double bass with Lisle Ellis and has had lessons with Bertram Turezky, Joëlle Leandré, John Lindberg, Mark Dresser and others. Damon's explorations into the sonic palette of the double bass have resulted in a personal, flexible improvisational language based in the American jazz avant-garde movement and European non-idiomatic free improvisation. Visual art, film and dance heavily influence his music, as evidenced by his CAMH performance of Ben Patterson's Variations for Double Bass, collaborations with director Werner Herzog on soundtracks for Grizzly Man and Encounters at the End of the World, and an early performance with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company.

Damon has collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including: Cecil Taylor, Marshall Allen (of Sun Ra's Arkestra), Henry Kaiser, Roscoe Mitchell, Michael Pisaro, Wadada Leo Smith, Marco Eneidi, Wolfgang Fuchs, Peter Brötzmann and Peter Kowald. After many years in the San Francisco Bay Area, and five great years in Houston, Texas working regularly with Alvin Fielder, Sandy Ewen, David Dove & Chris Cogburn, Damon will move to the Boston area in the fall of 2016. Damon has run Balance Point Acoustics record label since 2001, releasing music focusing on transatlantic collaborations between US and European musicians."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This new slab of free improv from veterans Lisa Cameron (drums), Damon Smith (bass), and Alex Cunningham (violin) hits the spot. It combines just the right amount of structure, open-endedness, discordance, and virtuosity. Cameron and Smith are both thunderous performers. The former uses passages of semi-predictable beats to further accentuate more mercurial patterns. The latter's acoustic bass is deeply-toned and almost hypnogogic. But Cunningham is at the fore through most of the album, aggressively sawing and scraping notes out of his instrument.

As an example, A Wave Reborn begins with slow-moving yet unconventional percussion coupled with bowed bass and a subtle and grating violin theme. Use of extended techniques results in textural exploration taking precedence over melody. Cunningham extracts notes like he is forging abstract metal artwork from raw materials. The track morphs into a form of walking (dancing?) bass line, with Cameron heavy on the cymbals and violin ebbing and flowing in the foreground. The tempo increases toward the end, with Cunningham's outside soloing over dense and angular rhythms.

Time Without Hours will be released on tape and as a digital download on October 14. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoyed this trio's 2020 release, Dawn Throws its First Knife."-Mike Borella, Avant Music News
