New squib-box releases: two improv-duos

squib-box are proud to release two albums, by two exciting free improv duos:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A.I.LOVEs2sceam
Paulina Owczarek (alto sax), Federico Reuben (live electronics)

A computer screaming along with a saxophonist in machine-cosmic synchrony. Artificial Intelligence
training, learning from human spontaneous invention. The machine becoming expressive, matching
heightened states of consciousness, developing a taste for SWEET improvisation. A.I. trains for love, excess, pleasure, spirituality… heading for a brain freeze.

squib-box presents A.I.LOVEs2sceam, an album of improvisations by Paulina Owczarek and Federico
Reuben. Recorded in one session on 22 January 2017, this album captures the coming together of two free improvisers with almost opposing methods, who yet manage to seamlessly integrate the organic with the synthetic, the physiological and the mechanical, the real with the virtual, the biological and the artificial.

Songs from Brightly-Lit Rooms
Tom Jackson (clarinet), Benedict Taylor (viola)

Songs from Brightly-Lit Rooms is the followup release to the critically lauded Songs from Badly-Lit Rooms (2014). Jackson and Taylor’s remarkable and longstanding duo partnership has always been one dedicated to exploring the intensely idiosyncratic outer reaches of freely improvised music. This new release perfectly encapsulates their unique aesthetic in five performances that are at once wild and off-the-rails, yet as lean and honed as the most crystalline chamber music.

Tom and Bened are regular collaborators on many live squib-box projects, but it’s perhaps in this most uncompromising of contexts that they’re at their most honest, challenging and new.
