Arrington de Dionyso
Add To My Artists

Arrington de Dionyso (b. January 4th, 1975) of Olympia, Washington uses performance as a vehicle for driving through the nameless territories held between surrealist automatism, shamanic seance, and the folk imagery of rock and roll.

After living in Chicago, Arkansas, and Spokane, Arrington moved to Olympia in 1992 to attend the Evergreen State College, where he studied Ethnomusicology, Music Therapy, and Butoh dance theater. In 1995 he founded the avant-rock group Old Time Relijun, which has since toured and recorded throughout the US, Europe, and Israel, and has released eight albums on the K Records label from Olympia, enthralling audiences with an approach to performance described as deep hermetic practice and/or "some fuckin' scary shit" by critics in the know.

As a solo artist, Arrington performs on the bass clarinet, jaw harps, and his voice with a distinctly multiphonic ability inspired by Tuvan throatsinging and the ecclesiastics of Albert Ayler and Don van Vliet. Pushing the envelope between musicality and pure energy, between shamanic ecstacy and lunacy, he enwraps rooms with resonant sound. His devotion to bringing traditional Tuvan musics into an experiment [Read more]

Pushing the envelope between musicality and pure energy, between shamanic ecstacy and lunacy, he enwraps rooms with resonant sound. His devotion to bringing traditional Tuvan musics into an experimental music context has been acknowledged by Tran Quan Hai, the famous ethnomusicologist and the world's leading expert on throatsinging.

In addition to Old Time Relijun and his solo projects, Arrington devotes a significant amount of his time to furthering the cause of free improvisation. He is the founder and curator of the Olympia Festival of Experimental Musics, in its twelth year. Arrington tours constantly, and has performed or/and recorded with notable improvisers throughout the U.S.A., Canada, Italy, France, Israel and Lithuania. He presents workshops on improvising with the human voice in conjunction with his touring around the world.

Arrington has received increased attention for his visual artwork, which deals with many of the same themes of spirit, sensation, and improvisation as his music. Recent exhibits have been held in Los Angeles, New York City, Vancouver BC, Paris, Bologna, and Beijing, China. A series of several dozen ink drawings is on view at www.krecs.com/oldtimerelijun. His work is represented in Paris by Atelier Cardenas Bellanger. (www.ateliercardenasbellanger.com)

Weasel Walter
Add To My Artists

Weasel Walter is an experimental drummer and composer. He is most famous as the leader of The Flying Luttenbachers, but also leads other projects such as the Weasel Walter Sextet. He began playing in Chicago in the early 90s, and has subsequently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003, where he has lived ever since.

Weasel Walter can most frequently be seen playing drums, although he plays bass, started out on guitar, and has taken saxophone lessons from Hal Russel.

Walters has cited influences as numerous as the of musicians Albert Ayler, Hal Russel, and Cecil Taylor, , and . Although many compare his style to that of Naked City in its mixing of genres and sense of irony, his is unique in that his compositions do not clearly show which genre they are, whereas Naked City's style more frequently involves switching between clearly definable genres every several seconds.

Walter has also gained fame as an expert on no wave music. He has given several public lectures on the topic, including to members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Paul Flaherty
Add To My Artists

Alto and tenor saxophonist Paul Flaherty is New England's purveyor of the ecstatic jazz pulse. Even before his 1978 debut Flaherty remained unshakable in the pursuit of soul healing and demon dashing through freedom music. That first record, In the Midst of Chaos was cut with his local clan, under the banner Orange. For the next 20 years Flaherty remained exclusively in the great North East and recording over a dozen blasting, freely improvised albums with drummer Randall Colbourne, and others, for Cadence and their own Zaabway imprint. Since 2001 Flaherty's notoriety has risen in tandem with his hyper-acclaimed duo with drummer Chris Corsano and collaborations Dream/Aktion Unit (with Jim O'Rourke and Thurston Moore), Cold Bleak Heat, Dredd Foole, Joe McPhee, Steve Baczkowski, Marc Edwards, and many others.

"He's been at it since the '70s and has become an underground champion of chasing the Eternal Now. The subject of these sonic musings is freedom--freedom from the constraints of traditional harmonic, melodic, and compositional forms--freedom to go, baby, go wherever the Spirit takes him." -- Farrell Lowe, All About Jazz
