Here’s Theatre Intangible episode 97: T.J. Borden and Steven Dunning artist showcase.

These two solo performances were recorded August 5th, 2012 for a show also featuring Ypsmael and Lawrence Crow. Episode 98 will feature those performances.

Buffalo, New York experimental cellist and composer T.J. Borden has worked with artists such as Tony Conrad, Steven Mackey, Jack Wright, Thomas Helton, Evan Lipson, and DJ Spooky. He’s also a member of Wooden Cities, a
Buffalo-based new music collective of musicians dedicated to performing the work of emerging and underrepresented composers.

A native of Buffalo, Steven Dunning is a Nashville-based violinist who has performed with the Huntsville Symphony, the Amherst Chamber Ensembles, and Country Music Hall-of-Famer Ray Price. He last appeared on Theatre Intangible episode 81: Ghost in the Hollow. Thanks for listening!

I’m very pleased to present podcast 81: Ghosts in the Hollow, starring THOMAS HELTON on double bass, STEVEN DUNNING on violin, RANDY HUNT on double bass, CRAIG SCHENKER on saxophone, and TOMMY STANGROOM on percussion.

I recorded the episode live to 2 track at the Gallery F closing reception on February 26th, 2012. Billed as Theatre Intangible Live, the performance was downright spine-tingling. Thomas was at Gallery F on tour, promoting his new video I, a collaboration with video artist, Jonathan Jindra. We were very lucky to have him participate in the improv!

Thomas Helton is a composer and experimental jazz double bassist from Houston, Texas. He plays like a man possessed, lost in communication with some invisible entity, blind to everything but his instrument and the music. Thomas appeared on one of my favorite T.I. podcasts to date, Podcast 9 –  Crow Helton Rauh Schenker.

There were several other great performances at the Gallery F closing show, and, as usual, I recorded all I could. I’ll post them soon and link to them here. (Watch this space.)
