As ourKickstartercampaign rolls on (see below), we're looking forward to having an exciting 2012.
In January, Archer Spade will be quite active. We're heading to California to work with Roscoe Mitchell and our sax-friend Drew Cecatto to work on a piece that Thomas Buckner is commissioning Roscoe Mitchell to write for our trio. While we're out there, we'll be playing a concert with Ken Ueno and Matt Ingalls at CNMAT. When we return, we'll be debuting our new duo piece, So Timid Persons Can Kill Their Own Fowl, at a free show at the Rotunda in Philly. Two days later, we'll be finishing up with our fund raising and looking towards the future.
We'll have details on some more events soon, including a premiere of Gene Coleman's new work in April.
We're really excited to announce that we've just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a commissioning project that will have us working with composers Gene Coleman, Dave Soldier, and Johnny DeBlase. Check the page out, enjoy the video, and consider helping us out! Thanks!
We've got a few exciting performances coming up. One in Berkeley, CA with Ken Ueno and Matt Ingalls and another in Philadelphia where we will be debuting a new piece we composed titled "So Timid Persons Can Kill Their Own Fowl" for electric guitar and amplified trombone.
We'll be in California in January to work with Roscoe Mitchell for a piece he's writing for Archer Spade and saxophonist Drew Cecatto.
