AF Jones / Derek Rogers
While they share the same taste, and musical heroes, AF Jones & Derek Rogers adhere to different approaches to making music. In playing shows together they have found an oddly natural juxtaposition resulting in something very new each time. Their efforts were described succinctly over at Tiny Mix Tapes as “two gripping fists in a fascinating aural handshake.”
A show in Dallas last year resulted in the live record Cedars, out on Sedimental.  Brian Olewnick of Just Outside called it “excellently judged shifts in timbre and dynamics while maintaining an ever-engrossing structural arc.”
About their live dynamic on Cedars,Brainwashed said “Rogers and Jones mix a bit of everything in, from recorded piano and acoustic guitar to random found sounds and carefully modulated feedback and distortion.  Different components are introduced, allowed to breathe and develop, but are then retired before stagnating and replaced with new ones, keeping a consistent current from beginning to end.”
They’ve also released the album Repetend, Parallax as a duo on Jason Lescaleet’s Glistening Examples, heralded at We Need No Swords as “…a compelling double-header by two of the most interesting US sonic experimenters…”

Gallery 1412 Benefit Performance and Jam

Gallery 1412 has been part of the Seattle music scene since 2004. There’s no wealthy benefactor involved, so in a way it’s a bit of a miracle, made possible by members who scrape together monthly rent not just for their own use of the space (teaching, rehearsals, recording, gigs), but so that the venue exists for local and out-of-town artists who need a place to perform that supports non-commercial music. Out-jazz, free improv, classical music across the spectrum, Indian classical music, musicals — you name it.

Don Berman (who is not even a member!) had a dream to put on a benefit concert to keep this leaky old ship afloat. I’ll be there, doing a brief solo performance, and Don will do a flute/drums duo with Dick Valentine, along with a performance by The Indigo (harpist Carol Levin and Amelia Love Clearheart). And then YOU, fair audience member, may join the throng, in an improvised session for the remainder of the night.

We’d love to see you there — bring your horn, harp, hands, harmonica, etc.
