Jim the Poet:

"A solo piece written for trombonists Mattie Barbier and Weston Olencki, the piece casts its performer as the stargate in the center of an entanglement of human physicality, modified and extended instrumental construction, grafted-on stereo jacks, panes of glass, transducers, mechanical sound exciters, contact microphones, mixers, amplifiers, many, many pedals, a steel plate, and a piece of wood. All of these elements touch each other, affect each other, resonate through or excite each other, are plugged into one another, loop each other, refract each other…here, the performer, the instrument, and the gear are elementally fused into one sound-being." excerpt from "Proximity to the Void: The Articulation of Distance in the Music of Michelle Lou" by Timothy McCormack

This album brings together Barbier's previously unreleased recording captured in the massive concrete space of Human Resources in Los Angeles and Olencki's newly intensified remixed and remastered version of HoneyDripper from a live performance at the Radius Gallery in Santa Cruz into one compilation.

Every time I hear this song I think of the Kids in the Hall skit where Bruce McCullough's teenage character has to defeat Satan using the power of rock, including playing this while saying the notes out loud

RN and PB have been creating various ways to vibrate things so that their acoustic shadows dance around: invisible air volumes that reshape constantly, move in the space, enter in the most secret places and inside ourselves. A way to get closer to things inherent spirits is to listen to them. Eventually encouraging them to produce sounds and resonate by various means: to hit, caress, shake, beat, scrape, scratch, claw, boil, clap, rattle, rock, throw, move, magnetize, clamp, cook, pinch, galvanize, motorize, bow, blow, pluck, heath up, let flow, freeze, drop, drip, connect, roll, mix, extend, sing...

The duo has started since 2016.
