Shelton Berre Duo

April 16th, 2018
Doors At 7. Music At 7:30

Saxophonist and composer Aram Shelton makes his Option debut with a duo performance with Norwegian drummer HB. A discussion with Tim Daisy follows.

Aram Shelton and HB are a saxophone and drum duo based in Copenhagen, Denmark. An evolving experiment in real time music creation, they explore the outer capabilities of their instruments via extended techniques and non-traditional sounds alongside fragmented melodies and internally shared rhythms. Their music takes divergent paths to meet in unexpected places and is guided by a sophisticated aesthetic which strives to avoid preconceived strategies and notions.

“ideas flow organically, both developing nuanced and eccentric sonic collages comprised of Shelton restless breathes and blows and HB's poetic, percussive colors, patiently gravitating towards an ecstatic catharsis.” — the Free Jazz Collective

Aram Shelton is an improviser and composer who performs on saxophone, clarinets, and live electronics. He plays with a distinct, harmonically rich sound and develops musical thoughts through constant motion, tonal shifts and complex sounds alongside clear melodic and rhythmic constructs. His vocabulary utilizes the range of extended techniques including multiphonics, harmonics, circular breathing, wind sounds and an exploration of the outer ranges of the instrument. He is known for his contributions to the creative music scenes in Chicago and San Francisco and now lives in Copenhagen. His writing and playing has been documented through more than two dozen albums to date through labels including Delmark, Clean Feed, Not Two and Singlespeed Music. He has worked closely with the likes of Larry Ochs, Kyle Bruckmann, Kjell Nordeson, Jason Adasiewicz, Frank Rosaly, Weasel Walter, Tim Daisy, Jason Ajemian and Fred Lonberg-Holm. aramshelton.com

HB (b. 1980) is a Norwegian drummer and composer who currently lives in Copenhagen, where he works as a freelance musician and educator. His playing is characterized by an inventive and energetic drumming, using a rich palette of sounds from a wide diversity of trash and objects, and sometimes also incorporating real-time electronics into his playing. This has brought him to numerous clubs and venues in countries like Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Germany, United Kingdom, France, USA, and Russia with musicians like Peter Brötzmann, Phil Minton, Axel Dörner, John Tchicai, Petter Wettre, Peter Friis-Nielsen, Kasper Tranberg, Simon Spang-Hanssen, and Liudas Mockunas. HB is a co-founder and active member of the record label & musicians collective Barefoot Records, where he has contributed on over 20 recordings. He has degrees in music science & music technology from Oslo University, and a rhythmical diploma exam from the Academy of Music in Esbjerg, Denmark. He is also an active part of the Danish Arts Council's «house artist» system, with numerous concerts and workshops in Danish schools and educational institutes. In addition, HB has composed and arranged music for theater performances and art exhibitions, and has exhibited several interactive sound installations at art museums in both Denmark and Germany.
