Joo Won Park – Modulationist
Released December 2nd 2016
On December 2nd, we’ll be releasing the second NOREMIXES album from composer, Joo Won Park. The album is entitled Modulationist and finds Joo Won expanding the palette of his last album Overundertone by including acoustic instruments into the mix. Hunter Brown joins the composer on opener, ‘Hallelujah’, for vibraphone and electronics. Later, Hunter is joined by Louis Pino on the rhythmically challenging ‘JNNJ’ for percussion duo and electronics. Theodosia Roussos is the oboist that gets lost in ‘Swamps, Showers, and Creatures’, and Giovanni Bertoni takes on Park’s electronics with two clarinets on ‘Armor+2’.
Pre-orders are available via iTunes and Bandcamp, and with a pre-order, you’ll receive ‘Armor+2’ immediately for download. If purchased through the NOREMIXES bandcamp, you’ll also receive scores for three of the pieces from the album.
We’re really excited to announce the NORESIDENCY release series!
This past Spring we did a residency at Philly’s The Art Dept; early evening, intimate concerts which we also recorded. We’ll be releasing a series of them starting next week, July 15th. They will be pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp, streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and for sale on iTunes and other stores for a very small amount. (Basically making them available in as many ways as possible!)
The third installment of our NOREMIXES NORESIDENCY at The Art Dept. in Philly is Friday, April 22nd. Mark your calendars! This month, NOREMIXES’ own Oh! Pears and Mikronesia will be joined by Valley Exit, the new moniker of Jeff Zeigler.
The Art Dept. is a small, intimate venue, so we recommend getting advance tickets. Doors are at 6:30pm, show is 7:00-9:00pm. Hope to see you there.
