I formed Turbulence in 2015 as I started to assemble players for the Leap of Faith Orchestra. Turbulence, the extended horn section for the Orchestra (along with guests on other instruments), also records and performs as an independent unit. We have had over 20 albums on Evil Clown with greatly varied ensembles. The only musician on all of them is myself. The sessions range from an early duet with Steve Norton and Myself (Vortex Generation Mechanisms) to a 5 horn band with bass and two percussionists (Encryption Schemes) to four albums by the side project Turbulence Doom Choir which feature myself, multiple tubas, percussion, electronics and signal processing, among other settings.
.
This performance was originally advertised as a Leap of Faith show. However, there was some scheduling confusion and Glynis did not have the date in her book for some reason. One of the advantages of the broad palate pure improvisation approach is that if one of the players happens not to make it the show can and does go on without difficulty. However, the band name Leap of Faith is only used when Glynis is present, so this performance is by Turbulence, the wind instrument (sometimes with percussion) branch of the Leap of Faith Orchestra. In the Evil Clown nomenclature, the band names broadly apply to the general approach of the ensemble, rather than to a fixed list of performers.
.
The newcomer, making his Evil Clown debut on this session, is Michael Caglianone, a woodwinds player who has been around the scene forever, although we had never before encountered each other. He had a recording studio for a long time and recorded area notable free-scene players like Joe Manieri and Joe Morris as well as Glynis and others more directly involved with Evil Clown. Recently, Mission Creep, the rock (atomic punk go-go jazz) band of Greg Grinnell that Yuri and I play in, had a big performance on a bill with some great other bands – Rabbit Rabbit Radio (with the amazing violinist Carla Kihlstadt) and Cheer-Accident from Chicago. Anyway, Yuri recruited Mike to come on board Mission Creep for that show, making a three horn line up of that band for the first time since Steve Norton left us for graduate school in Maine. We both really enjoyed playing with each other and I immediately recruited him for Evil Clown.
.
The next Frame Notation Score, Systems of Celestial Mechanics, by PEK will feature game calls in several places. Everyone in the ensemble will need one or more... In the last several months I have made a pretty good start at the collection I will need for the performance next year. I brought the hole batch with me for this performance and Mike and I both used them quite a bit. I’ve had 8 or 10 game calls in the auxiliary instrument set for several years now, but this new set now possesses a far wider array of sounds. I'll use these for a while so I can learn their range and then pick up some more before the performance of SCM...
