Buffer Overrun

Krebs8001.jpgI have contributed to the sound world of Buffer Overrun, a new work by Ginger Krebs. The sound design includes an original multi-channel score that utilizes sophisticated technologies and their meaningful noise. It runs February 4 -7 at the Chicago Cultural Center’s Store Front Theater.

From the DCASE website:

Buffer Overrun, the newest work from Ginger Krebs, addresses information as a liquid and mobile force that tends to erode the importance of place. It explores ways that bodies orient toward multiple, shifting centers, and wonders at the consequences of this contemporary form of vertigo. The choreography and sound incorporate phase shifting, slow motion, structures based on code, and spiral patterns derived from optical illusions. In the midst of acceleration and overwhelm, Buffer Overrun marvels at human adaptability and contemplates patience as something revolutionary. The performance is directed by Krebs with sound design by Joseph Kramer and dance performance by Sabrina Baranda, Elise Cowin, and Joanna Furnans.

Radio Broadcast of “Porous Notion” To Happen in Slovenia


Radius and radioCONA unite to present zimaFM (winterFM), which brings together works that combine the medium of radio with a winter landscape, with a special focus on nighttime. The broadcasts will occur for five consecutive days beginning at nightfall on Sunday February 15 through Thursday February 19, concluding with a night of live performances. In addition to the FM broadcasts, the will be a ‘listening hub’ installed at the concert venue, Pritličje, which will serve as a way for folks to listen to all of the work during non-broadcast hours.

I am very pleased to know my work will exist in this context.

Music about home so very far from home.

First 3 Extensions

The following are the first three entries in a series of remixes and versions stemming from the Coppice track, Hoist Spell Extensions off our 2013 CD, Big Wad Excisions.  All tracks are currently being offered as free downloads through the Quakebasket bandcamp page. Check back every week, as new artists’ work will be posted nearly every Monday for the next few months.  These three tracks make a compelling trio to start the series!

Machinefabriek is Rotterdam-based Rutger Zuydervelt. His music combines elements of ambient, modern classical, drone, noise and field recordings, to create ‘films without image’. (qb-25.3)

Michael Pisaro is a guitarist, composer, and member of the Wandelweiser Composers Ensemble. Michael continually creates new ways to perceive the idea of music. This is his first “remix” project. (qb-25.2)

The Paver is a Chicago-based band fluent in aggression and consonance, and the first participants of this series (qb-25.1).


Hoist Spell Extensions is a release partnership between Coppice and Quakebasket Records, exploding the rich content of Hoist Spell, from the Big Wad Excisions CD (qb-25), in a free download series of new remixes, interventions and interpretations. Every week Quakebasket will post a new download by a new featured artist.
