ANTELOPER is the duo of jaimie branch (trumpet, synths, vocals) and Jason Nazary (drums, synths). Their new album Pink Dolphins was produced by Jeff Parker (Tortoise, The New Breed), using improvisations the duo recorded at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn. The album cover art was a collaboration between illustrator John Herndon (also known as drummer for Tortoise) and jaimie branch (whose digitally treated watercolor technique just keeps getting better). The duo’s previous two albums – 2018’s Kudu (issued on vinyl for the first time in January 2022) and 2020’s in-progress report Tour Beats Vol. 1 – both acted as ‘proof-of-concept’ experiments, merging synths, raw experimental desktop electronics, gadgets, and efx with the energy and attitude of punk and an insatiable thirst for extended outer space jams. Pink Dolphins presents a fully-molted and firing-on-all-cylinders expression of the duo/project, as realized by Parker in the lab.
23 ENSEMBLE is a dynamic, effusive collective of musicians creating auditory environments in which to skry the aethyrs for new sonic possibilities. We have been an evolving group of musicians since our first “large ensemble” shows in 2008. The seed of the idea was gestated by drummer Andy Kivela (Sisters and Brothers/Bourgeois Homes/The Impenitents) as a way to explore a more fully improvised based musical approach. As the idea evolved and grew, the group was trimmed down to an ever shifting base quartet. Andy welcomed guitar wunderkind Adam Bosse (Fred Cracklin) to the fold in 2011, saxophone colossus Andy Allen (Hollow Deck/Creative Healing) in 2014, and just recently, bass wizard Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors/solo) in 2021. We are honored to be able to present new, free improvised music for your listening enjoyment.
Doors are at 7pm, music will begin at 8pm.
