Will Csorba is a prolific young Texan of the resurgent American Primitive guitar school, already several albums and EPs deep. His work takes a cinematic approach to the discipline, frequently guiding the listener from its roots in old-time and blues through modern drone, raga, pastoral and experimental styles. Csorba plays close attention to compositional elements in his pieces, enhancing the idea of his music as a journey, but isn’t afraid to use improvisation as one of those elements; the songs rarely wind up where the listener expects, but whether it’s by intent or chance only Will can say.
Classically-trained cellist and viola da gamba player Amy Domingues and multi-instrumentalist/composer Dennis Kane have performed for years in the Washington, DC indie/experimental scene in collaborations with others. Finally working together under the name Domingues & Kane, they weave the eloquent resonances of the viola da gamba with electronic treatments, keyboard, and guitar to create a rich sonic fabric. Drawing from traditions as varied as Renaissance counterpoint, basso ostinato, and improvisation, the duo forges a new instrumental genre all its own.
