Erik Friedlander, Week at The Stone: Oct 15-20

I’ll be performing at The Stone all this week. Stop by if you have a second..More Info: http://bit.ly/1bjSjJi

Notes

Mr. Friedlander, I bought your track "Hide and Seek" a while back and I am wondering how did you record it? Is it multitracked, and how many layers are there? I hope you publish a score for the arrangement someday, sounds like it would make a good cello duet or trio.

Asked by voxmaris-deactivated20140227

I multi-tracked it in my apartment studio using a Schoeps microphone and my computer rig. There are five parts. “Hide & Seek” has a very rich harmony, you may have to use a lot of double stops if you had only two or three players (might be too hard!).

Erik Friedlander’s CLAWS & WINGS - Available October 1, 2013

I am pleased to announce the release of “Claws & Wings” my new cd with
Ikue Mori (electronics) and Sylvie Courvoisier (piano). This is a
deeply personal CD written following my wife’s death in November of
2011. The work is a meditiation on what my wife, my daughter, and I
had been through and where my daughter and I go from here. Ultimately,
it’s an affirmation of my 23 years of marriage, and a result of
chosing to move forward with optimism over a rocky terrain.

8p Block Ice & Propane

Erik Friedlander, cello

Cellist Erik Friedlander draws on his experiences as a child traveling
across the United States with his family during the 1960’s and 70’s to
create Block Ice & Propane, an engaging solo performance that brings
together Erik’s rich, Americana-inspired cello music, and his own
stories from now-distant road trips. 

10p Volac

Erik Friedlander, cello

Music by John Zorn

Volume 8 in the continuing Book of Angels series is an intimate and
breathtaking recital by one of the world’s most accomplished cellists.
A vital member of the Masada family from the very beginning, Erik
Friedlander has hypnotized audiences both here and in Europe with his
own bands Topaz, Broken Arm and Grains of Paradise. Stepping out in a
special solo project, Erik shows off his remarkable technique in ten
compositions from Zorn’s lyrical Book of Angels. This is Erik at his
best. Rich, romantic, gripping music to both challenge and soothe the
savage beast.

October 16

8p Claws & Wings (premier)

Sylvie Courvoisier, piano

Ikue Mori, electronics

Erik Friedlander, cello

This new work is written in memory of Erik’s late wife. He, along with
his daughter, were left to ponder how to make sense of the loss, and
how to move on. The music strongly resonates with Erik’s mind-set at
the time: meditating on a life lost, regaining his balance, and then
moving forward with optimism. Claws & Wings (World Premier) is
dedicated to this ongoing process.

10p Mass Cello 

Erik Friedlander, cello

Jeffrey Ziegler, cello

Greg Heffernen, cello

Christopher Hoffman, cello

New and old works for multiple celli - this will be a fun night!
Guests include Jeffrey Ziegler, Christopher Hoffman, Greg Heffernen,
and others! Works by Julius Hemphill, Imogen Heap, Friedlander and
Verdi.

October 17

8p Broken Arm Trio
Michael Sarin, drums
Trevor Dunn, bass

Erik Friedlander, cello
In 1949 bassist Oscar Pettiford broke his arm playing baseball. He
could still move his fingers even though his arm was in a sling, so he
began experimenting with a cello a friend had lent to him. He tuned
the cello like a bass only an octave higher and later made history
recording a series of cello-led projects including the great,
under-recognized 1964 Fantasy release, “My Little Cello” featuring a
photo of his newborn son whom he named “Cello.” Erik Friedlander
tosses away his bow for this new band, playing only pizzicato in a
world steeped in the influences of Oscar Pettiford and the small group
feel of Herbie Nichols.

10p Oscar Pettiford Project

Special Guest Michael Blake, tenor saxophone
Erik Friedlander, cello

Michael Sarin, drums
Trevor Dunn, bass

A special tribute to jazz bassist (and cellist!) Oscar Pettiford. When
you are an improvising cellist, there is not so much history to look
back upon and contemplate. Unlike saxophone players or guitar players
who have a long line of titans to measure themselves against, jazz
cello players are more or less on their own. However, there is Oscar
Pettiford. Pettiford tuned the cello like a bass so he’d be instantly
familiar with where the notes lay, and he was passionate about the
instrument, using it often in crucial sessions under his name—if it
was an Oscar Pettiford recording the cello was often there in a
central role. Joining the Broken Arm Trio is special guest Michael
Blake on tenor, performing Pettiford works like Tamalpais and Night at
Falcon’s Lair, as well as Friedlander originals.

October 18

8p Chimera

Erik Friedlander, cello

Chris Speed, clarinet

Andrew D’Angelo, bass clarinet

Christopher Tordini, bass

Friedlander’s first working band. This amazing acoustic improvising
quartet will reunite to perform for the first time since the late 90s,
performing works from Chimera (Avant) and The Watchman (Tzadik) “..a
mesmerizing tour through the dark corridors of modern jazz.”

10p Topaz

Andy Laster, saxophone

Erik Friedlander, cello

Satoshi Takeishi, percussion

Stomu Takeishi, bass

Friedlander’s working band until 2006, the Topaz quartet will perform
from their 4 releases including the Cryptogramophone releases, Prowl
and Quake. “Prowl presents cellist Erik Friedlander’s Topaz quartet
for a set of rhythmic excursions that are as adventurous as they are
accessible.”

October 19

8p/10p Bonebridge (preview new CD)

Erik Friedlander, cello

Doug Wamble, slide-guitar

Trevor Dunn, bass

Michael Sarin, drums

Friedlander will preview their new cd, “NightHawks” Bonebridge
turns to the American South and Blues for inspiration. Taking a cue
from his teenage passion for The Allman Brothers Band, Johnny Winter,
and Southern rock in general, Friedlander brought in slide-guitar
player and Memphis native Doug Wamble to share the front line of this
new quartet. Wamble joins a honed unit as Friedlander, Mike Sarin
(drums) and Trevor Dunn (bass) have played together in New York City
for years, most recently in the Broken Arm Trio. “Mr. Friedlander,
an ingenious cellist who makes an art of soulful rusticity.“

October 20

8p Nothing On Earth (premier)

Shoko Nagai, piano, accordion

Satoshi Takeishi, percussion

Erik Friedlander, cello

A new trio formed to record music for the soundtrack Friedlander
composed for Nothing on Earth, a new film by Mick Angus which follows
photographer Murray Fredericks to the stark and beautiful landscape of
the glaciers in Greenland. Friedlander, Nagai and Takeishi capture the
mood as Fredericks relocates his work to the Greenland Icecap - atop a
melting glacier and under the solar storms of the Aurora Borealis - he
finds himself alone in a landscape he’s never been, in a place he
doesn’t understand, hoping this time he hasn’t taken his quest too
far.

10p No Compass:Solter Resets Friedlander (premier)

Scott Solter, electronics

Erik Friedlander, cello

Producer Scott Solter has worked with numerous indie artists,
including Spoon, The Mountain Goats, John Vanderslice, Lazarus, The
Forms, Pattern is Movement, Superchunk, Okkervil River, Liam Singer,
and St Vincent. He and cellist Erik Friedlander team up to bring you
the first live performance of No Compass, the five-track remix EP
released earlier this year. Friedlander and Solter have worked
together since they met in 2006 working with The Mountain Goats on the
Sunset Tree project. Their first effort together was Block Ice &
Propane, Friedlander’s 2007 solo release.
