The Many Duo
The Many Duo is a showcase for two Seattle-based improvisational musicians: percussionist Kevin Haag and guitarist Matt Williams. Jenn Carreto contributes violin and/or keyboards, depending upon the collective trajectories. They create both free and structured sound textures derived from many musical “genres,” including jazz & blues, no wave, punk, ambient and heavy music. The Many Duo’s approach to soundcraft often employs hand-drawn shapes, pictures, random dictionary entries, graphic scores, dialogue, politics/social issues and loosely organized integers. The "shifting shades of green and grey" winter climate of Cascadia informs their dynamic yet understated musical aesthetic--pairing timekeeping with timelessness, hyperactivity with minimalism, and skepticism with hope.
