“Improvising trio blending the acoustic and electronic, minute and resounding sounds, with mindful listening at the core.”
Reviled for his “shapeless sonic tinkering” by the Los Angeles Times, Oakland musician Matt Ingalls is a composer, clarinetist, concert producer, and computer music programmer. Often incorporating elements of improvisation, his music is heavily influenced by his long involvement in computer music. His composerly solo improvisations explore extended clarinet techniques that interact with the acoustic space, often as combination tones. Matt is the founder and co-director of sfSound, a new music series, ensemble, and internet radio station devoted to new ideas and traditions of experimental music, performance art, live electronic music, Bay Area composition, and the various facets of contemporary improvisation.
Andrew Jamieson is dedicated to spiritual transformation through his work as a pianist, keyboardist, composer and arranger. With a passion for black gospel music, he plays for faith communities including City of Refuge UCC in Oakland and serves as Minister of Music at Bethel Community Presbyterian Church in San Leandro. With a passion for free improvisation and experimentation, he plays in bay area improvisational groups, including Ell3 and Nine Fingers, and he completed a Master’s of Arts in music composition at Mills College. Working to integrate these musical traditions, he composed the avant-gospel chamber opera Heaven Down Here meditating on the story of Jim Jones’ Peoples Temple, and is working on an album of experimental piano arrangements of African American spirituals.
