PAUL DUTTON/JOE SORBARA DUO

duttonsorbara02_michaeltoledano

PAUL DUTTON soundsinging, poetry
JOE SORBARA drums, percussion

A blend of vocal virtuosity and percussive wizardry, the Dutton/Sorbara duo displays a fusion of musical sensibilities fired by inventive technique and rigourously disciplined, fully acoustic, nonidiomatic free improvisation. Dutton’s soundsinging is laced with richly textured multiphonics, univocal intervals, rasps, rumbles, honks, howls, and wheezes, supplemented here and there with unorthodox mouth-harp touches. Sorbara meanwhile maintains a kit-driven framework of thunderous rolls, pops and pulses, subtle pointillistic punctuation, rustles and thumps, sizzles and slaps, augmented by a broad range of jingling and rattling extra-curriculars.

The pair weave sonic fabrics of textural and rhythmic originality, with alternating bursts of emotional intensity and placid moments of meditative calm, in a music characterized by deft colouristic highlights, sly asides, and dazzling technical prowess—plus, for this Hamilton performance, doses of Dutton’s textual poetry from his new book, Sonosyntactics: Selected and New Poetry.lcp-logo-png
