The stars align tomorrow evening at Betty’s Bar & Grill for a lineup packed with a who’s who in the Nashville experimental community. Brady Sharpe, Chris Davis, Derek Shartung (Mallochio) and Aaron Hoke Doenges will all be on hand to support touring experimental trombonist/digital manipulator Christian Pincock. All of the Nashville artists have been involved with T.I. in one way or another. Brady S. has been on a number of our podcasts. Chris D. is the man when it comes to booking shows in Nashville. Derek S. will be appearing on an upcoming podcast very soon. You can read an interview we did with Aaaron D. here.

Here’s the press release. If you see me at the show, come say hi!

Christian Pincock performs improvised and composed music on valve trombone and a computer-based instrument of his own creation with MAX/MSP. Using a keyboard controller and a system of sensors attached to his trombone he is able to control sampled sounds and integrate them expressively and musically. His work is both dynamic and subtle, drawing from diverse styles such as improvised experimental music, contemporary classical, avant-garde jazz, noise, and electronica.

He has performed internationally in events such as the 9th, 10th and 11th Soundpainting Think-tank in Woodstock, Sweden, and France, the Music Omi International Arts Residency in 2007, the Banff Workshop for Jazz and Creative Music in Banff, Canada in 2006, as well as venues such as The Stone (NYC), Roulette (NYC), Le Petit Faucheux (Tours, FR).

He has a Bachelor of Music in jazz studies from New England Conservatory and a Masters of Music in jazz studies from Manhattan School of music. Currently living in Albuquerque, NM, he has been an active musician in New York City, Boston, and Berlin where he has produced and collaborated in diverse musical, multidisciplinary and multimedia projects. In addition to performing, Christian also gives workshops and masterclasses, and teaches privately.

Aaron studied musical composition at The Contemporary Music Center on Martha’s Vineyard, Universit├Ąt Potsdam, Germany, and in Nashville, TN where he received his Masters in Music Composition. He searches the world around him for thoughts, sounds, and melodies that can be pieced together in ways to provoke attention, thought, and perhaps dialog. He pieces his surrounding together like a puzzle and waits to see what the pictures look like. His projects range from soundscapes for installation projects to works for event producers to film scores for performance artists.

Brady Sharp plays prepared electric guitar with Bluff Duo with David Maddox. He previously played with the quartet Voight-kampff, and has had the pleasure of sharing musical space with many acts that have come through Nashville including Gino Robair, Tatsuya Nakatani, and whoever else will oblige him!
