Evans / Pluta / Altieri – “Sum and Difference” – [Carrier]
Electro-acoustic improvisations out of New York. Interesting stuff. Sam Pluta’s laptop interacts in strange ways with Peter Evans’s trumpet (tracks 1,2,4,5) and Jim Altieri’s violin (tracks 3,6). Evans and Altieri play with extended techniques, often avoiding music altogether, in favor of focusing on the sounds they can produce. Pluta is all over it, processing those instrumental sounds in real time (with SuperCollider software, I think), adding, subtracting, modulating, layering, glitching… Each player seems to be very much in tune with what his partner is doing, and each duet is fascinating in its own way.
