Tongue Depressor w/ Austin Larkin

Tongue Depressor (New Haven, CT) is the duo of Zach Rowden and Henry Birdsey. They write, improvise, and perform drone-based music with fiddles, pedal steel, lap steel, contrabass, organ, and bells, usually involving microtonal tunings and re-arranged/re-tuned fragments of American church music. Austin Larkin (New Haven, CT) uses elements of tone, interstices of

fields, asymmetries, and patterns. Performance and practice informed by research into dimensions of vibrating bodies.

On their new LP Tongue Depressor and Austin Larkin have combined to record what they had been practicing on the road live across the US together. Henry Birdsey plays bagpipes and lap steel. Zach Rowden plays violin and tapes. Austin Larkin plays viola and sirens (which he himself constructed and are a story unto themselves). Soothing sounds give way to unsettling / unnerving feelings when the sirens find their way through meditative loops.


E. Jason Gibbs

Improvisor/composer E. Jason Gibbs (b. 1969) is based in Portland, Maine. He works with field recordings and guitar and has been active in underground music scenes since the late 80’s. While Gibbs' work for guitar is completely improvised (drawing on minimalism, noise, free jazz and fingerstyle), his compositions are built from field recordings, and explore the relationship between the built and natural worlds and how humans impose themselves on environments. Inspired by liminal spaces where cities and nature overlap, the latter composed works also include the sounds of people in urban environments, filtered and captured through resonances on, or in, structures.

Gibbs' live performances combine field recording compositions with electro-magnetic manipulations and digital feedback. Gibbs has releases on Industrial Coast (UK), 577 Records, Confront (UK), SUPERPANG, and has a new release coming soon on Traced Objects.
