Improjazz: drama without narration

Somehow I managed to miss this when it came out. Noël Tachet’s review of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) in Improjazz from way back in March 2012: Expériences de résonnances et d’occupation de l’espace sonore. Très dramatique sans narration. Tout l’espace est occupé, toujours de manière surprenante, avec peu de sons, peu de matière (toutefois […]

CloudsandClocks: deep dialogue

While reviewing ‘Anomic Aphasia’ (SLAMCD 559) by Han-earl Park, Catherine Sikora, Nick Didkovsky and Josh Sinton, Beppe Colli, writing in CloudsandClocks, is reminded of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): It was about four years ago that—totally by chance: I found the CD in my mailbox—I listened to guitarist Han-earl Park for the very first time. […]

video trailer: io 0.0.1 beta++

I’m creating YouTube samplers of some of the more recent items in my discography, and I’ve started by uploading a trailer for ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) [more info on the recording…]. On the stage: two men, a woman, and an artifact, a freestanding mélange of industrial, military, and domestic hardware. The humans hold graceful, […]

Dalston Sound: sonic terrain

In the context of his discussion of Richard Barrett’s Dark Matter, and Barrett and Han-earl Park’s ‘Numbers’, Tim Owen of Dalston Sound describes ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531): Intellectually, if nothing else, the pair [Richard Barrett and Han-earl Park] are an intriguing match. Before his meeting with Barrett, in May 2010, Park recorded an album, […]

Downtown Music Gallery is back!

Downtown Music Gallery is back up and running after Hurricane Sandy, and they need your support. If io 0.0.1 beta++ could express a preference, I imagine it would state Downtown Music Gallery to be its favorite record store. io, however, cannot prefer, or express a preference for, anything… but you have my expression of preference! […]

You can find additional audio recordings (with new widget) on a couple of other pages. I’d be grateful if you could give these a play, and let me know if you have any problems, […]

SLAM Productions featured in The New York City Jazz Record

This month, The New York City Jazz Record puts a spotlight on the record label SLAM Productions. [NYC Jazz Record (PDF)…] [More…] If the musical automaton io 0.0.1 beta++ could feel gratitude, or express thanks, I imagine it would warmly thank George Haslam and his label for taking a gamble on a recording of real-time […]

Annea Lockwood: gritty complexity

I met Annea Lockwood at The Roulette in February which saw the performance of In Our Name. I had the pleasure of talking to her about technological transpositions and the secret lives of everyday (and not so everyday) artifacts. A few days later I posted her a copy of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531). A […]

Jazz Convention: l’avanguardia è tornata

“The avant-garde is back,” according to Romualdo Del Noce at Jazz Convention. In his review of ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531), Han-earl Park improvises a “rugged plateau” and “hyperacid notes”, Franziska Schroeder enriches “the other half of the sax… with a naked and experimental voice, together in harmony and dissonance with parallel and converging streams […]

JazzWord: AI in an improv session

This one’s really interesting. Perhaps not the warmest review (in comparison to, say, those at MusicZoom, CloudsandClocks or Monsieur Délire), maybe not the fairest, but Ken Waxman’s take on ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) at JazzWord, in which the machine improviser is “unobtrusive and egoless” and “thoughtful pauses” signpost the authentic human, I think is […]
