sundays @ berkeley arts presents:
Larry Ochs & Donald Robinson duo
Chaplin / Keusch / Perkis: electronics
Clay Chaplin - electronics
Wyatt Keusch - analog electronics
Tim Perkis - electronics
Clay Chaplin, Wyatt Keusch, from Los Angeles, and the illustrious Tim Perkis, will perform assorted solo and duo improvisations and compositions, using their self-developed electronic musical instruments.
Clay is a composer, improviser, and video artist from Los Angeles who explores audio-visual improvisation with computer instruments and networked systems. He is continuing development of his wireless, interactive instrument named 'Stupid Thing' which, through a connection with the body provides mobility and physicality to Clay’s performances.
Tim Perkis is an electronic musician from the Bay Area who has worked for over 25 years with computer networks and improvisation; he is also a filmmaker (Noisy People, 2006) perkis.com
Larry Ochs - saxophones
Donald Robinson - drums
Performing together in various ensembles since 1991, Ochs and Robinson performed for the first time as a duo in 2011 in their hometown San Francisco Bay Area. At each of the first two concerts, a different recording engineer offered them free access to his studio in the following months. As a result, the duo recorded a new CD’s worth of music over the next 5 months, and that is now mastered. That material comprises much of the music they will draw from in these performances.
Ochs and Robinson first performed together from 1991 to 1998 in The Glenn Spearman Double Trio. From 1994 to 2002, they worked with bassist Lisle Ellis in the trio What We Live, a band that recorded many CDs and added incredible guests for special concerts/recordings including Dave Douglas, Wadada Leo Smith, Nels Cline, John Zorn, Miya Masaoka, Saadet Turkoz and Chris Brown, among others. From 2000 until 2010, Robinson was part of the Larry Ochs Sax & Drumming Core featuring drummer Scott Amendola, as well as Satoko Fujii and Natsuki Tamura from 2007 - 2010. Throughout all this time, Ochs and Robinson jammed and rehearsed in Robinson’s studio, easily done as they live only 15 minutes apart. Thus it seems inevitable that they would – eventually - create a special repertoire for this duo.
