Javier Red's Imagery Converter (BlueStem)

Javier Red's Imagery Converter (BlueStem)

Dec 10, 7:00pm

Cafe CODA1224 Williamson st.Madison, WI53703 Map

When forming this band, Javier, Jake, Gustavo, and Ben put their usual musical abilities aside. The music invited a different set of assumptions and insights to be discovered, manifested, and woven into the band’s sound. The result is a music that is intuitive but also, seductively puzzling. As Javier stated: “it is like re-discovering musical intuition”. That is what makes listening to this band so exciting.

The new album, Ephemeral Assumptions -featuring Javier Red (piano), Jake Wark (tenor saxophone), Gustavo Cortinas (Drums) and Ben Dillinger (Bass)- is a strong collective statement of the band’s arrival. The music ranges from the earthy and physical “Stretched Particle” to the introspective and reflective “Suspension”. With strong and mysterious rhythmic hooks, this album fully engages the listener’s imagination and attention. Within the band, “a strong natural musicality is always there, while also maintaining a draw of the enigmatic”, Javier said.

In July, 2011, Jim participated in the Ibla Grand Prize International Music Competition held at Ragusa-Ibla, Italy. As a result of this competition, Jim was selected as a winner and toured the USA with the winner's group in April-May, 2012. Performances included New York University and Carnegie Hall, May 1, 2012.
