Duck That This group was formed to focus on game calls (!) as a sound source. I play saxophones, large clarinets, percussion and game calls with Angela Sawyer (electronics, voice, game calls), Josh Jefferson (alto sax, bass clarinet, game calls) and Jesse Kenas-Collins (cornet, clarinet, objects, game calls). For more info, see the Duck That MySpace page.

Grizzler is an improvising large ensemble lead by Dave Gross. Numbering anywhere between 9 and 13 (and sometimes more!) players, Grizzler concentrates its energies on the layering of individual voices and the intersection of the ensemble and the space. I primarily play baritone saxophone and bass clarinet. The group has no Web site yet, but Dave Curry (our violist) wrote a nice blog entry about the band here.
Steve Lacys Tips: weve assembled this trio of Noell Dorsey (voice), Matt Samolis (flute) and me on bass clarinet to perform Steve Lacy epigrammatic opus Tips. [ more ]
