Motl, Kyle / Patrick Shiroishi: Apparitions [CASSETTE w/ DOWNLOAD] (Notice Recordings)

The second album on Notice Recordings for West Coast free improvising saxophonist Patrick Shiroishi is a duo with San Diego-based double bassist Kyle Motl, in an exceptionally well-balanced example of powerful expression from both players, free blowing and turbulent exchanges offset by experimental introspective passages in four extended and excellent improvisations.

Artist Biographies:

"Kyle Motl is a bassist, composer, and improviser. Active in a variety of ensembles and settings, Kyle's work crosses the boundaries between idioms as wide as free jazz, contemporary concert music, and extreme metal. Current interests include extended harmonic techniques for solo bass improvisation, electroacoustic performance with live electronics and improvising software, modular compositional schemes, recursive and generative structuring, and exploration of complex sonic spectra.

Kyle is a member of the Peter Kuhn Trio, and has been performing in quartet and trio with Abbey Rader since 2011. He maintains regular duo projects with T.J. Borden, Adam Tinkle, and Drew Ceccato. The Kyle Motl Trio, featuring Kjell Nordeson and Tobin Chodos is a collaborative platform for new compositions weaving complex structures together with free improvisation. Kyle has performed alongside artists including Anthony Davis, Kidd Jordan, Mary Halvorson, Roscoe Mitchell, Mark Dresser, and Wadada Leo Smith, among others.

Kyle holds a BM from Florida Atlantic University and an MM from Florida International University. He is a DMA candidate at UC San Diego, where he studies bass with Mark Dresser."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Patrick Shiroishi returns with his second Notice album, a duo with double bassist Kyle Motl. "Apparitions" opens this album of the same name, and we are greeted with wispy and amorphous trails of wind-blown textures, as if the very first layer of an abstract painting fell to the floor of an old house and followed the contours of the walls and door frames, under shafts of light and in-between the fine cracks of floors.

This is an album full of expressive and poetic phrasings, jittery movements and dry abrasions, constantly shifting and opening spaces for air to breathe by itself. Motl's bowing is at once light and textural and later deep and full-bodied; his plucking is loose, patterned, and metallic. Shiroishi's playing is frenetic and incredibly focused, playful and intense, at times intoning into the horn lengthy vocal expressions which only heighten the mysterious and cathartic energy running throughout these pieces."-Notice Recordings
