Sketches

by Black Acid Arkestra

Textures such as effected trumpet, blistering sax solos, virtuosic bass lines, prog-rock guitar licks, classic rhodes keys and digital sampling all come together to create an other-worldly sound, a concise presentation of the weirder sides of jazz.

Textures such as effected trumpet, blistering sax solos, virtuosic bass lines, prog-rock guitar licks, classic rhodes keys and digital sampling all come together to create the other-worldly sound of Black Acid Arkestra’s debut album Sketches, which showcases a concise presentation of the weirder sides of jazz, simultaneously an homage to the past and a step into the future.

The idea for Black Acid Arkestra formed in the winter of 2016 when Alex Arnold and Jake Cleveland
decided to create a fusion project encompassing the darker sides of jazz harmony and the more exciting sides of progressive rock. After a few shows and practice sessions, the tunes that became Sketches were
written and recorded at Timeghost Studios, a cabin on the outskirts of the southern Indiana town.

Black Acid Arkestra is an avant-jazz collective that formed in Bloomington, Indiana. Led by Jake Cleveland (guitar, composition) and Alex Arnold (trumpet, composition, production), the group blends various forms of outsider music including free jazz, progressive rock and ambient synth-scapes. The group is releasing their first record, Sketches, on the experimental label Accretions in 2018. On Sketches, the tunes are fleshed out by veterans of the Bloomington jazz scene: Eric Arnold on rhodes keyboard, Charles (Chuck) Roldan on drumset, Quinn Sternberg on electric bass, and Rileaux Marx on alto saxophone.
