Compositions and improvisations for guitar, effects + loops. A variety of rhythmically and texturally focused sounds. Touring this format regularly throughout the United States.
New trio performing my songs in the fake “cowboy slowcore” or “dystopian dream jazz” genres. Simple melodies and chord structures with extended textural improvisations and occasional reinterpretations of related classics. Ben Rolston on upright bass, Colin Hinton on drums and percussion.
<<<duo with kevin shea>>>
Anything from ambient washes to jerky-noise improvisations and performance. Two new albums to be released in the near future, one of free-improvisations titled “The Importance of Being or Not Being, Whichever” and another of dream-jazz song-soundscapes titled “Vague Sense of Virtues and other dreams of mundane profundity.”
Cosmic, pulsating, dichotomous trio that mixes math-rock, post-rock, jazz fusion, and free improvisation. Featuring the simultaneously destructive-constructive rhythm section of electric bassist Johnny DeBlase (Zevious, Many Arms) and drummer Kevin Shea (Talibam, Storm & Stress). Performing the loosest of my compositional material with plenty of room for improvisation and denying the existence of time.
Post-rock / math-rock hybrid with Eric Castillo on drums/laptop & Ben Backus on bass/keys. Much of the music is composed collaboratively. Formed in 2009, on hiatus at the moment. For more: http://www.facebook.com/hannibalmontana
