Who Knows What?


Who knows what ?

In a duo, everything is possible, from the reality to the imagination. We b=
egin for example, to investigate the bare reality of a place which can be i=
nside or outside, by dance and music we penetrate this real space which has=
its appropriate life, following the way it is built, lived, represented. W=
e can also play with furniture and objects of the place, fix them to-gether=
, transform them into sculpture, totem . Dancer and musician settle a rite =
which is the history of the place, but also a poetic change of situation.

By playing, they lay themselves emotionally bare, connected to the mo-ment,=
the accidents, the breaks or aberrations of energy, emotion, the games wit=
h objects, materials, suits, make-up. The sweat of dancer and musician defo=
rms or models the scenic, musical, poetic subject. Natu-rally, there is som=
e humor in all this, because the body precisely has its limits. The risk, w=
hich we begin to play with, is internal, intuitive; it does not demonstrate=
itself, it is on the surface of skin, of soul; just a con-versation betwee=
n musical instruments (piano, clarinet, feedback, trum-pet, snare drum, har=
monica), voices and moving bodies.

Positively we are fond of adventurous chaos like improvisation. But J. Cage=
was the wisest man; for him, if we try to make the world better, we can wo=
rsen things. So if we worsen things by opting for disorder, may we become b=
etter ?

Joe Exley/Claudio Parodi


Joe Exley electric tuba
Claudio Parodi Turkish clarinet, pocket electronics

A grooooovy night with a tuba and a clarinet? You bet, man!

Available from May the 27th

NYC's Joe Exley (aka TUBAJOE) started very early as an instrumentalist with=
violin lessons at the age of two. Later at age seven came the clarinet, fo=
llowed by the oboe, bassoon and sax, but it was not until the age of fiftee=
n that Joe found his true voice - the TUBA. Joe went through typical classi=
cal training, but all the while could never get rid of the powerful influen=
ce of rock, jazz, blues, and funk. Joe stuck to his guns and completed conv=
entional music schooling, first at the University of Northern Colorado, the=
n off to the big city and legendary "Tuba-Mecca", Chicago, for graduate sch=
ool at Northwestern, lessons with the masters, and bigger and brighter thin=
gs. 'Shedding' a steady diet of orchestral excerpts, sonatas, concertos (co=
ncerti?), and other typical historical reproduction, Joe started to become =
in demand as a freelance player in orchestras and chamber groups - but it w=
as not those things that would become Joe's true voice (at least this far).=
Joe simply could not deny his roots of popular music and jazz, and somehow=
ended up playing on TV themes, rock albums, and touring with many society =
and show bands as well as tours with the Chicago Jazz Ensamble. Since he st=
arted playing the tuba in 9th grade, Joe always searched for ways to fit th=
e tuba into modern and/or other situations where it might not normally be f=
ound. Historically, the tuba has always been at the back of the band or orc=
hestra, often only pounding out "oom-pahs". But, with this new combination =
of electrification and slightly altered technique, Joe enabled himself to f=
ollow his dream of melding the TUBA into a completely viable, acceptable, n=
on-comedic, accessible commercial instruments that fits naturally into a ta=
lented rhythm section. Just after Joe started experimenting with various ga=
dget and techniques added to the tuba, he was (very casually) invited to "s=
it-in" (a jazz tradition where visiting musicians are invited to join the b=
and for a tune or two) with the masterful drummer Paul Wertico and his band=
- ironically on a night where they had no bass player. This short experime=
ntation opened up Joe's ears and mind to possibilities that were endless - =
he finally experienced a "glimpse" of what his voice could be. Joe was then=
invited to join several bands in Chicago where he was able to experiment a=
nd develop his new voice as a tuba player - leaving behind the typical flat=
ulence and historical presumption that are expected of the big bass horn, f=
oraging ahead to a smoother, groovier, more direct sound. It now was time t=
o make "the move". Joe and his wife and cats packed up and headed out for N=
ew York City. Shortly after moving to the area, Joe found himself in a reco=
rding session laying down improvised grooves on the "electric tuba" along s=
ide the legendary groove-meister Bernard "Pretty" Purdie. This led to inter=
esting live performance and studio recording sessions with great folks and =
new experiences in which conventional tuba playing might not suffice. Joe a=
lso found himself part of the avant-garde music scene, adding his sound to =
new music and free improv, experimental theater and modern dance. He is alw=
ays in demand from many different ensambles in many different genres. Joe r=
ecently took permanent residence in Harlem - and can be found playing on di=
verse projects with great folks. He also recently put together his OWN band=
- as a leader... -Susan Fenzl

utture di aggregati emozionali.
