Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"This record could be the best HNWs ever done or the worst classical yet heard; it is both and thus neither. 2 large-scale compositions of 30 minutes each are presented on this limited edition Compact Disc. The TRIGESISEXTET (2022) was scored for 35 Brass players and a vocalist; 10 Peter Evanses, 9 Steve Bs, 7 Ron Stabinskys and 10 NNs.

GOSPEL POWER WALLS (2020) was scored for a mixed chorus of 5 (bad) people and applies telescoping delay to exponentiate the volume and force of the personnel. Each composition applies the saturation of acoustic sound sources to deliver monstrous WALLS, one by using Brass TONALITY, the other by overlapping multiplication of a single CHORAL grouping.

Nevai's Devotional Brass and Military HNWs are the cutting edge of TRUE MAXIMALISM, an onslaught of contrasts."-Psykomanteum

Evans is part of a broad, hybridized scene of musical experimentation and his work cuts across a wide range of modern musical practices and traditions. Peter is committed to the simultaneously self-determining and collaborative nature of musical improvisation as a compositional tool, and works with an ever-expanding group of musicians and composers in the creation of new music. His primary groups as a leader are the Peter Evans Quintet and the Zebulon trio. In addition, Evans has been performing and recording solo trumpet music since 2002 and is widely recognized as a leading voice in the field, having released several recordings over the past decade. He is a member of the cooperative groups Pulverize the Sound (with Mike Pride and Tim Dahl) and Rocket Science (with Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and Sam Pluta) and is constantly experimenting and forming new configurations with like minded players. As a composer, he has been commissioned by the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Yarn/Wire, the Donaueschingen Musiktage Festival, the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Program, and the Doris Duke Foundation for the 2015 Newport Jazz Festival. Evans has presented and/or performed his works at major festivals worldwide and tours his own groups extensively. He has worked with some of the leading figures in new music: John Zorn, Kassa Overall, Jim Black, Weasel Walter, Levy Lorenzo, Nate Wooley, Steve Schick, Mary Halvorson, Joe McPhee, George Lewis, and performs with both ICE and the Wet Ink Ensemble. He has been releasing recordings on his own label, More is More, since 2011."

Recent festival appearances include Newport Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival (Netherlands), Moers Festival (Germany), Jazzfestival Saalfelden (Austria), Outreach Festival (Austria), and Jazz and More Festival Sibiu (Romania).
