Jamison Williams (soprano saxophone)

“In the tradition of players like Peter Brotzmann, and most famously Albert Ayler, Williams is a proponent of the extended techniques of the saxophone, spitting out harmonics, weeping ‘multiphonics’, the reed equivalent of a guitarist creating feedback and noise from an amplifier and effects pedals.” Dan Brown (Folio Weekly)

ADDITIONAL PERFORMANCES BY:
Sabrina Siegel is an american (born in New York) free improviser/composer and visual artist. She explores creation/self/relationship through an awareness of the role of Nature/Chance in the creation of works where Nature is employed in some way( i.e. playing her guitar with rocks) to compromise her compositional control, which yields work of wonderful organic complexity.
She explores improvised composition exclusively, through guitar, voice and other instruments.
“Siegel’s ‘situationist’ approach to recording results in hyper-personal work where setting, physicality, thought, and personality interact as equals”. -DaveX
” More than executing notes or rhythms or melody, a song or a piece of music to me is a field for being—for direct living, feeling, breathing, and expressing in the moment; for sinking deeply, or flying highly into self/Self; or just maintaining our balance—which may reveal a simple beauty or truth. And like life, one rides the waves of grace and the precarious—in this existence, the better we watch and listen, the easier and more potent our flight”. – Sabrina Siegel
