Rafael Toral (Lisbon, Portugal)
with Davu Seru

Rafael Toral plays experimental electronic instruments. Melodic without notes, rhythmic but without a beat, familiar but strange, meticulous but radically free, he calls his style “post-free jazz electronic music”. Riddled with paradox, yet full of clarity and space, Toral’s playing has been described as “a brand of electronic music far more visceral and emotive than that of his cerebral peers”. Its development is the Space Program, a complex network of recordings and performance series, structured explorations on his custom instruments, articulating silence and sound in a thoughtful, yet physical way. This concert celebrates the release of “Space Elements Vol. III” on Taiga Records.

Davu Seru began playing drums in 1985. Except for a few weeks of gyil lessons in Ghana, he is a self-taught musician. He calls himself a jazz musician. He’s worked with numerous improvising musicians including Milo Fine, Andrew Lafkas, Jaron Childs, Charles Gillett, Jack Wright, Anthony Cox, Evan Parker, Wendy Ultan, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Adam Linz, George Cartwright, Stefan Kac, Taylor Ho Bynum, Jim Baker, Robbie Lynn Hunsinger, Tatsu Aoki, David Boykin, Nicole Mitchell and Harrison Bankhead. He also plays in the instrumental rock band Take Acre.

Seeded Plain
Seeded Plain (Bryan Day and Jay Kreimer) perform improvised and composed pieces on homemade instruments, electronics and custom audio software. The duo began performing in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2007 after playing together in the four-piece Shelf Life ensemble. Seeded Plain toured in Europe in 2008 and in the U.S. in 2010 (with Maria Chavez), presenting instrument building workshops and collaborating with local artists. Their newest release, “Entry Codes” on Lisbon, Portugal’s Creative Sources label was recorded at Kreimer’s Tooth Black studio in winter 2009/2010.

Paul Metzger / Milo Fine / Elaine Evans

milo fine:
Born 1/22/52, Milo has played drums since 1961 (informal studies with
Elliot Fine); piano since 1966 (studies with James Allen 1966-67); B
Flat clarinet since 1974; alto clarinet since 1992; and E flat
clarinet since 2002. (He also played bass clarinet from 1989-1997.)
His initial contact with the marimba was in 1959, and he returned to
it in 1990. In 1980, Milo invented the m-drums, a percussion kit made
up of “found objects”, broken cymbals, and the like attached to a
practice pad set. In 1987 this kit evolved into the m-drums II, which
incorporates low tech electronics; that, in turn, he also utilizes
with the B flat clarinet, marimba, and electronic piano.

paul metzger:
Paul Metzger is a very worthy heir to the mystic throne of late
acoustic-guitar shaman Robbie Basho. Using a variety of retooled
banjos and other multistringed implements—not to mention absolutely
stunning technique—he creates sweeping, swirling 21st-century ragas.
– Time Out New York

elaine evans:
Trumpeter Elaine Evans flows from terse to loquacious. Her 2009
European tour of solo trumpet improvisations was received
enthusiastically as were her many collaborations with the likes of
Milo Fine, Davu Seru. Elaine is also a founding member of The
International Novelty Gamelan.
