pan y rosas is beyond excited to release a series of albums that document the fifth cycle of articular facet. articular facet is a series of electro-acoustic compositions and structured improvisations. curated by julia miller, the series reflects the use of ancient, adapted, or hacked technology, invented instruments and performative objects, and the incorporation of the visual and physical into the sonic.
the fifth cycle took place over three sundays in october of 2013 and was a collaboration between pan y rosas and julia miller. the performances all took place at the empty bottle in chicago.
the second releases in the series come from karris / price duo and baker / ritch.
karris / price duo consists of reid karris and kg price. reid karris is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, sound experimentalist and improviser from chicago, illinois who primarily uses prepared guitar and drum kit sent through electronics. kg price is an improviser, composer, technician also based in chicago. this album is their first documentation as a duo!
baker / ritch is jim baker and sarah ritch. jim baker is an improviser who focuses on the keyboard arts – pianos, keyboards, synthesizers. sarah ritch is a composer and improviser who uses cello, electronics and guitar to explore her sound world. their new album documents the second time these two have conversed.
