Pre-ordering is open now for Binary Canary's latest CD, bc+1. I am so happy to have joined Kyle and Ted for a track in this innovative project. I work with Kyle in our chamber group, AVIDduo and have performed many works by Ted, including original works for AVIDduo and a work for solo flute titled, of circumstance. I highly recommend picking up a copy of the album or downloading at the link below. The album releases on June 1.
Binary Canary is a collaboration between laptopist Ted Moore and performer Kyle Hutchins. Their work together since 2013 has included solo and chamber music, free and structured improvisations, and interactive multimedia. Their 2015 album ‘click/blow’ was reviewed as “a full on noise-jazz symphony” (Raised by Gypsies) and a “display [of] individual virtuosity and group musicianship… well worth the listen” (Signals for Images). They have been featured at conferences, festivals, and on series such as the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS), New York City Electronic Music Festival (NYCEMF), Electroacoustic Barndance (EABD), North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA), Music Now at the University of North Texas, New Horizons Music Festival (NHMF), Association for Technology in Music Instruction (ATMI), Ars Electroacoustica, The New Ruckus, Patrick’s Cabaret, Punk Ass Classical, Skewed Visions, and as guest artists at universities across the country. www.binarycanarymusic.com
