Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

I’ve been wanting to make some kind of mix for the site for a while after having such a blast collaborating on the Halloween and Xmas mixes, so starting the year off with some Charlatan action on Foxy Digitalis feels right. After numerous stops and starts, I finally settled on a mix of one instrument/solo performance (mostly) pieces. There’s a little wiggle room, of course … Continue reading Foxy Digitalis Mix Season 2, #2: Charlatan

fluke-mogul / Liberatore / Mattrey / Mendoza “Death In the Gilded Age”

When it comes to dream teams of improvisers, there’s honestly about a million different combinations that would qualify.

gabby fluke-mogul “threshold”

I’ve been sitting with this album for a while now, trying to come up with something cohesive to write about and continually falling short. Truth is, gabby fluke-mogul’s threshold is one of the most intense and captivating releases of 2021 so far. These six pieces mostly for violin bristle and connect on a physical level.
