hungry cowboy: DANCE and Twins of El Dorado: Portend the End will be available for sale as downloads and CDs come March 1st from our store.
hungry cowboy is Jacob Wick, tumpet; Briggan Krauss, saxophone; Jonathan Goldberger, guitar; and Mike Pride, drums.
On DANCE, hungry cowboy performs Jacob Wick’s graphic compositions, loosely based on the emotional landscape of Cormac McCarthy’s southwest novels. These scores meld traditional musical notation with drawings, and text from McCarthy’s prose.
DANCE is being released as a limited edition of 100 CDs, with packaging designed by Wick – they look terrific!
As we’ve mentioned before, Portend the End is a collection of new art songs for voice and trumpet. Also a debut recording, this album features words and music by Kristin Slipp (Cuddle Magic, Art Bears Songbook) and Joe Moffett (Ad Faunum, Inzinzac) as well as a text setting by composer Wes Matthews.
Before March 1st, be sure to check out the digital version of Portend the End.
Hey Hey Hi!
Sorry about the extra high voice today – we’re just really excited about our next two releases… *hungry cowboy: DANCE and *Twins of El Dorado: Portend the End.
The full releases will be on March 1st, but we got a little over-eager and made Portend the End available here-now as a digital pre-release.
Read a little more about it, why don’t you:
“Portend the End is a collection of new art songs for voice and trumpet.
This debut recording from Twins of El Dorado features words and music by Kristin Slipp (Cuddle Magic, Art Bears Songbook) and Joe Moffett (Ad Faunum, Inzinzac) as well as a text setting by composer Wes Matthews.
Portend the End engages the listener with incantations and sound rituals that blur the line between the serious and the comical, the meaningful and the absurd.
Slipp and Moffett let their personal styles mingle to create bizarre and beautiful new pieces for their unconventional instrumental pairing.”
Now listen to it!
