Scratch Slice Jag_cover_300

Out and Gone Music is proud to announce the release of Scratch Slice Jag, the new album from trombonist Jeb Bishop and violist Dan Ruccia. Recorded live at the Carrack Art Museum in Durham, North Carolina, in 2016, the album finds the duo drawing on European free improvisation and new music while exploring myriad extended techniques. The result is a stunning set in which the pair explore the outer sonic reaches of their instruments and highlight what becomes possible when two like-minded improvisers come together to share their musical and personal relationship with an audience.

Scratch Slice Jag will be available on October 6, 2017 on CD and as digital download. You can preview one track and pre-order the album now on Bandcamp.

Cyanotype Album Release Party Wednesday Night!

Cyanotype will celebrate the release of their debut album Two Silent Schnauzers Wednesday, September 7 at 8:30pm at Arcana in Durham, NC.

Two Silent Schnauzers was one of Avant Music News’ Picks of the Week, and the Indy Week says  of the album: “The album’s pieces scrape and squeak, yip and wail, to odd and occasionally unsettling ends. Cyanotype requires close listening, but lean in, and you’ll be fascinated by every detail.”

There is a $5 suggested donation, which gets you a download card of the album. Hope to see you there.
