Sam Pluta (live electronics) and Peter Evans (trumpets) duo
Back room show – $15
7 pm (doors open at 6:30)
Peter Evans (trumpet) and Sam Pluta (electronics) have been collaborating since 2008 in a wide variety of contexts. Their work together has spanned small Jazz groups, large wind ensembles, through-composed works by themselves and others, and in educational contexts in the fields of improvisation an electro-acoustic music. Their work together has been featured in the Peter Evans Quintet, Rocket Science (with Craig Taborn and Evan Parker), Parker’s USA Electro-Acoustic Septet, the collective band House Special, ICE and the Wet Ink Ensemble. They have performed at major festivals and venues across Europe, Canada and USA, and have presented their work and ideas at several major colleges and universities.
In the duo format Pluta and Evans use all they have developed from their experience together to forge a new and dynamically interactive music. Since the release of their recording “Sum and Difference” in 2011, they have persistently honed and refined their duo music into a fully formed type of electro-acoustic chamber music. Improvisation and a commitment to the explosive energy of sound itself informs the duo’s approach to real time composition.
Their music bridges Evans’ efforts to explore new sonic worlds for a traditional acoustic instrument with Pluta’s customized and highly flexible software. Their instruments are at some points fused into a unified sonic entity indistinguishable as two voices, while at others engaged in violent counterpoint.
Their latest record, Event Horizon is upcoming on Pluta’s label Carrier Records, released in LP and digital formats.
