John Dikeman & Aleksander Skoric

“Live”

John Dikeman (2.3.83, Rushville, NE, USA) is an American saxophonist currently residing in Amsterdam. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of sources, John’s playing runs the gamut of improvised music and technique. John has performed extensively in the Netherlands and USA as well as Canada, Brasil, Russia and throughout Europe and the Middle East.

John grew up in Wyoming and started performing professionally at the age of 16. Dikeman left Wyoming in 1999 to study saxophone and composition at the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy. John later attended Bennington College in Vermont to study with Milford Graves while at the same time studying privately with the late Joe Maneri. After Bennington, John moved to Boston, then New York City and Philadelphia. While on the east coast John performed extensively with many of the top musicians from the USA including Nate Wooley, Mike Pride, Daniel Carter, Tatsuya Nakatani, etc… In 2004 Dikeman moved to Cairo, Egypt where he worked full time as a professional musician and educator, leading numerous ensembles as well as freelancing in a wide range of settings that included performing as a soloist for the Cairo Symphony Orchestra and being a long term member of the band of Nubian pop star Mohamed Mounir. After Egypt, John moved briefly to Budapest, Hungary, then Paris, France and finally settled in Amsterdam in 2008.

Since moving to Amsterdam, Dikeman has performed with Joe McPhee, Jeb Bishop, Han Bennink, members of The Ex, Roy Campbell, Ab Baars, and many others. John has been very active in the Dutch improvised music scene as both a performer and curator. John was selected for the 2012 Young VIP tour which featured the trio Cactus Truck plus guests on tour throughout the Netherlands. John was invited to join Stichting Doek as a core artistic member in 2012. In the fall of 2012 Cactus Truck completed a 37 concert tour of the USA. Their performance at Zebulon in New York City earned them a place on Andrey Henkin’s list of Best Concerts of 2012 for the New York City Jazz Record.

Montague Armstrong – Hammond Hits

Montague Armstrong

“Hammond Hits”

Imagine a world where the sounds of sixties testcard music and the sort of music played between working mens’ clubs acts had been picked up by aliens and then sent back to earth for an intergalactic knees-up around the Hammond organ….
Difficult? It may not have been Montague Armstrong’s intention, but that’s what this delightful, effervescent concoction of tunes makes me think of. Jude Cowan Montague’s effortlessly cheerful tunes and Matt Armstrong’s always immaculately well-placed electric bass make this an unusual, but definitely desirable item from Linear Obsessional and also marks the third release in LinOb’s new Cassette Imprint series.Released as a professionally duplicated cassette with a picture by Katy Binks and design by David Little,and as a free/name-your-price download.

“Revisionist History”

In attempt to connect deeply with nature Gilman Mom’s newly-released album, Revisionist History, is immersed in atmospheric field recordings and jazz-inspired drone. The album looks to delve into the embrace of a warm, youthful summer’s day and perhaps explore what mental state endured by such an environment.

Natalia Kamia, Stewart Miller, and other invisible entities – We jammed on our little green aircraft

[Eg0_176]

Natalia Kamia, Stewart Miller, and other invisible entities

“We jammed on our little green aircraft”

We welcome back Natalia Kamia on eg0cide, a few years after her collaborative work Cluster with Ayato. This time she teamed up with Stewart Miller from USA Both of them have studied music in academic settings, but in order to expand the expressive potential of their crafts, they have turned to utilizing extended techniques for their main instruments – for Natalia the piano, for Stewart guitars – and using objects/processes that were probably never intended to be musical. All of the tracks from their album “We jammed on our little green aircraft” were compiled from recordings that they had passed back and forth through the internet.

The result of this collaboration is a fresh & intriguing work that deliberately ignores the traditional hierarchies between sounds and focuses on attending to their particularities, without trying to polish them too much. Stewart and Natalia are not afraid of collisions. Their music passes by the non-contradiction principle and the narrow conceptions of music as “harmony”; their sounds dance, float, slip, crash and start running again without following a precisely perceivable logic: you just have to accept them as they come & go. They form a dizzy, unstable world that is in the same time very material and completely unreal, sometimes joyously agitated, sometimes more restrained and plaintive. These tunes often keep some kind of twisted groove, as in some forms of free jazz.
I won’t pretend to know who or what the “other invisible entities” credited as co-creators of the album might be, but having listened to it several times I’ve realized that even goldfishes might learn to sing, and that plants need to pee sometimes. Maybe we just have to experiment with different ways of feeding pianos and guitars ? “Meow!” answered the swinging spoons…

Split Phase – Compendium

[nvr050]

Split Phase

“Compendium”

Time for a special and long overdue release here at noisyvagabond! For our 50th release we present a gigantic collection of tracks (43 to be exact for a total of 6 hours of music!) from Split Phase. Split Phase was a live electronic duo hailing from Upstate NY consisting of myself (c. ‘transient’ martin) and Mike McInotsh active for a period roughly through 2010-2014. For our live shows, we were joined by Nate Vanslyke on lights and visuals. I provided the musical backing via loopers and a plethora of synths and effect processors while Mike provided the rhythms via an acoustic and electronic drum kit. Split Phase was an attempt to make music in real time which generally was made with sequencers or computers and bring those types of sounds into an improvised live process. As such, the music lost some of it’s precision but gained much in the way of humanized passionate expression. Presented here is a small selection of the countless hours of recordings we amassed practicing and creating on a near daily basis. You will find an eclectic mix of genres ranging from jazz, funk, drum and bass, dub, techno, downtempo, and more as we were never interested in pigeonholing ourselves into any particular sound. I hope you can find something in this compendium that moves you. One day the fates will realigned and new Split Phase music will be churned out. Until then, ENJOY!

Acknowledgements: Thanks to Carmen Chiles for letting us include our remix of her track ‘Love is’ and Sarah Winton for providing vocals for ‘Compromise’.

Ölü Körpē – vol. 2 – Mira, la bruja no esta quemada

[WAC10]

Ölü Körpē

” vol. 2 – Mira, la bruja no esta quemada”

Ölü Körpē vol. 2 – Mira, la bruja no esta quemada

Track list:
1. My Lai, 1968
2. Yes, Vomit Comet.
3. Possibilities are Endless; Train Stations, Airports, Foreign Lands

So much had happened since my last collection of sounds. I decided to “embark” to new, unfriendly shores with drones, noises, and a bit of pseudo free-jazz. Not as melodic as “Travel,” I reckon, but no less fun.

As far as subject matter goes, “Mira, la bruja no esta quemada” (which means “look, the witch is unburnt” in english, by the way) rolls around things that can’t go away no matter how hard we wish them to disappear; maybe the mundane (desire to travel) or the somewhat heavy (massacre and cover-ups).

Please, do use headphones/headsets while listening to the tunes. There are some interesting movements there. Don’t forget to drink some water and watch the witch go unburnt.
