About the Album:

Brian Morton of THE WIRE writes:
"Each (composition) is a sonic environment, a utopic or virtual space in which the physical dimensions, temperatures, textures and vectors of travel are all dictated by sound. [...] They are all the intellectually richer for revealing their inspirations in art and cartography, but they do not depend on those narratives for their success, which is why what you are holding in your hand is such an exciting recording. This really is, as the label has it, music with its ear to the future."

Underwolf is pleased to announce the opening of the Outhaus, a new space for experimental composition, free improvisation, avant-rock, and sonic exploration, with three days of performances from adventurous artists. A former beauty salon in Mid-City, Los Angeles, the Outhaus is a new home for music that breaks through the glass of the past with what's to come.

He is also active as a bass guitarist, improvisor, film composer, and theatrical sound designer and is a member of the digital hardcore band The Miz'ries, described as "a noise band who improvises three minute pop songs" and "the music that plays in the club where the bad guys hang out" whose music is released by the label collective Belts & Whistles.  His music has been performed by ensembles such as Mobius Percussion, The Living Earth Show, Dither, The Guidonian Hand, loadbang, Ogni Suono, Newspeak, and So Percussion.   Upcoming projects include an album of improvised material with Rinde Eckert where he acted as guitarist, bass guitarist, and producer to be released on Underwolf Records.  He is currently based in Philadelphia. https:// soundcloud.com/quinncollins

LOADBANG

New York City-based new music chamber group loadbang is building a new kind of music for mixed ensemble of trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, and baritone voice. Since their founding in 2008, they have been praised as ‘cultivated’ by The New Yorker, ‘an extra-cool new music group’ and ‘exhilarating’ by the Baltimore Sun, ‘inventive’ by the New York Times and called a 'formidable new-music force' by TimeOutNY. Their unique lung-powered instrumentation has provoked diverse responses from composers, resulting in a repertoire comprising an inclusive picture of composition today. In New York City, they have been recently presented by and performed at Miller Theater, Symphony Space, MATA and the Avant Music Festival; on American tours at Da Camera of Houston, Rothko Chapel, and the Festival of New American Music at Sacramento State University; and internationally at the China-ASEAN Music Week and Shanghai Symphony Hall.  loadbang is the recipient of numerous awards, including Chamber Music America/ASCAP's Adventurous  Programming Award and New Music USA's Impact Fund.
