Improvisational free jazz/post rock quartet Vertical Squirrels (comprised of IICSI’s director Ajay Heble, IICSI researcher / professor Daniel Fischlin, and all-star musical improvisors Ted Warren and Lewis Melville) have released a new record through Ambiances Magnétiques entitled Le gouffre / The Chasm.
The album was recorded during a 2019/20 residency at Silence as part of the You Are ∴ I Am series, the intent being to invite a diverse array of artists into a live improvised community context. This recording documents what happened on October 23, 2019 and features special guests Gary Diggins and Dong-Won Kim.
Vital Weekly: “The music [the Vertical Squirrels] produce is always memorable…The playing is always tight, and nothing is ever wasted.”
