  • Jeff Kimmel, Ishmael Ali, Bill Harris “Focus On Vanity” from A Pound of Salt (Orbit577)
    • Released on November 20th A Pound Of Salt documents an improvisational performance by Jeff Kimmel (clarinet, electronics), Ishmael Ali (cello, guitar, electronics), and Bill Harris (drums, electronics), in Chicago in November of 2019. This particular configuration had only played a handful of times prior to this recording session, but immediately developed a unique group language and shared aesthetic. Throughout the 7-track album, all three musicians manipulated their acoustic instruments with some form of electronic addition, disrupting the conventional timbral characteristics of their instruments and offering refreshing, sometimes haunting, interpretations of more classical instrumentation.

    • released August 26, 2020 This live recording from 2011 by the longstanding working band The Rempis Percussion Quartet documents a period of work in between two previous releases – 2010’s Montreal Parade, and 2013’s Phalanx – the first release ever put out on Aerophonic Records! Here we find a band live onstage, and ready to roll for what had increasingly become a rare “hometown” performance after Flaten moved away from Chicago a few years earlier. Situated at the legendary Hideout, a warm Chicago venue that served as a home base every Wednesday night from 2006-2014 for the improvised music scene locally, nationally, and internationally, the band was comfortable, fired up, and ready to go for the occasion.

    • Frank Rosaly – drums
