On November 18, nuscope recordings is set to release a new disc titled Spill Plus with pianist Magda Mayas, double-bassist Damon Smith, and drummer Tony Buck.
This disc, which was recorded in 2010 at 1510 Studios in Oakland California, provides a prime example of how an existing duo (Mayas and Buck) can meet with another musician (Smith) to arrive at something new, unique, and quietly powerful.
The origins of nuscope recordings began in 1998 to document daring, life-affirming improvised music with roots in jazz, free jazz, free improvisation, and modern avant-garde classical composition. The musicians who perform this music have the ability to stimulate, mystify, and move; they also have the gift to shatter preconceived perceptions of music and sound.
With sound artists such as Evan Parker, Georg Graewe, and others, nuscope recordings hopes to bring about fresh perspectives of improvised and related music. Although the music on the nuscope recordings label will vary—one thing remains consistent. That is, all of these musicians present their music, regardless of label, with added artistic value.
