Eric Barber's MetriLodic + Bad Luck
Eric Barber's MetriLodic is a freely improvising trio that breaks most of the rules of groove-based ensembles. Featuring Eric Barber on sax and electronics, with longtime collaborators PK on electric bass and Byron Vannoy on drums, this band take rhythm, meter, groove, and melody in a new direction. Bad Luck (drummer Chris Icasiano + saxophonist Neil Welch) use live loops and pedals to create an astounding range of sound, quickly shifting into fierce improvisations, sound art, and carefully constructed harmonic palettes.
