Artist Biographies:

"Jeph Jerman is a musician who began his musical career drumming and playing in bar bands. In the 1980s, he became aware of other sonic possibilities for his drum kit and started learning to improvise and record his own music. During this time Jerman was a frequent collaborator with other musicians who were also exploring improvisational techniques. In the mid-1980s, Jerman founded a cassette label for the distribution of music by himself and friends. The label released over 50 cassettes, several LPs, and a short-lived magazine.

After relocating from Colorado to Seattle, Jerman continued playing with local groups of improvisers and began giving solo performances where he improvised with mostly natural found objects, a practice he continues today. He founded the first animist orchestra dedicated to making larger scale works using natural object play. In 1999, Jerman moved to Cottonwood, AZ. He continues to investigate sound and recording in many forms including field recordings, the building of crude sound making devices, and the effects of age and other damage to analog tape. Jerman's 2014 Grants to Artists award funded recording and touring with Tim Barnes. Jerman continues to collaborate with Dave Knott in a band collectively known as The Yes, Well, and with Tim Barnes, with whom collaborated on an FCA-supported record released in 2015 (Erstwhile Records.) Other CDs and works are available on Anomalous Records, Semperflorens, and Trait Media Works."

"Jeph Jerman and I first started playing together in 1995 and have collaborated ever since. When Jeph lived in Seattle, I was one of the first to take instruction on his animist orchestra approaches and have played with him in Blowhole, Climax Golden Twins, and others in ad hoc groupings, as well as his El Grupo Arrestra. When Jeph moved away from Seattle we have continued to play, exploring exceedingly lo-fi approaches with cassettes, mini-cassettes, dictaphones, our various assortments of homemade instruments & collected materials, all over the phone. Our 22 & 1/2's series was a limited run of 100 c46 cassettes, each a unique side taken from this Arizona ~ Washington dialogue and any other previously unreleased "session" recordings we have participated in together (like excerpts from the Anomalous Records Thursday Night Improvised Music Above the Artificial Limb Company recordings). Jeph did one side and I did the other = tape #x done."-

We also made a record, a limited edition lathe cut 10″ LP: the Yes, Well... No, Really! There's only a couple of those left, so email me if you are interested in getting one of those or a 22 & 1/2 cassette."-Dave Knott
