Hay, Emily / Marcos Fernandes - We Are (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU Public Eyesore 97
"Emily Hay and Marcos Fernandes' new collaborative CD offering, "We Are" captures the capricious nature of improvisation as they move from rhythmic interplay to ambient textures and globally informed grooves to sparring electronics.
Anchored by their duets, this collection of studio recordings boasts several trio explorations with renowned bassist Lisle Ellis and a quartet featuring Ellen Weller on winds and Al Scholl on guitar.
Hay uses voice, flute, piccolo and piano while Fernandes provides percussion, phonographies (or field recordings) and samples. Ellis also adds a wide palette of sounds with his bass, electronics and laptop. The musicians shift between acoustic and electronically processed instrumentation, complimenting and contrasting each other as they create their various sonic spaces which are often abstract yet remain direct and primal.
Born in rural Virginia, Emily Hay is an active member of the Los Angeles and "left coast" music communities, performing and collaborating in avant garde,art rock, free improvisation and contemporary classical ensembles such as U Totem, The Motor Totemist Guild, Otherparts, I Am Umbrella, Adam Rudolph's Go: Organic Orchestra, The Emily Hay Collective, The Rich West Ensemble, Surrealestate Ensemble and The Jeff Kaiser Okodektet.
Born in Yokohama, Japan, Marcos Fernandes has long been active in San Diego as performer, producer and curator. He has performed in Japan, Hong Kong, Mexico and the US as a solo improviser, phonographer and as percussionist/sound artist with various ensembles, including Wormhole, a decade-long collaboration with percussionist/sound artist Robert Montoya."
