“Equivalent Ideation & Lost Gill-Slits” (2013) Bil Smith Composer

“Equivalent Ideation & Lost Gill-Slits” (2013) Bil Smith Composer
For Two String Quartets and Two Jazz Quintets featuring:
Quatuor Diotima - Radikant; Oliver Lake (Saxophones); Roscoe Mitchell (Woodwinds. Ideated Instruments); Bil Smith (Pocket Trumpet, Flugelhorn, Percussion); William Parker (Bass); Amina Claudine Myers (Piano); Milford Graves (Drums, Percussion, Ideated Instruments)

Han Bennink (Drums, Percussion)
Recording: Funkhaus Nalepastrasse, Berlin. March 12, 2013

The genesis of this composition emanates from my early music experiences as a free jazz trumpet player. Ornette Coleman’s Double Quartet and the seminal recording “Free Jazz”; Horatiu Radulescu’s musical treatise “Sound Plasma” and artist Mark Rothko all have a profound influence in the evolution of this work
