‘Relucent’ is Chicago composer and percussionist Tim Daisy’s latest solo effort. A collection of compositions and improvisations combining recent explorations with turntable manipulation and radio static with his expanding vocabulary as both a composer and improviser on the marimba.
Fusing collage and abstraction, the compositions and improvisations on Relucent combine Tim’s multiple influences from the worlds of visual art and sound into a suite of eleven varied and dynamic musical situations. Building on almost two decades worth of experience working with a wide array of musicians and ensembles from both the Chicago and European experimental music scenes, Tim Daisy has created a unique body of work which draws on his past experiences in improvisation and composition, while at the same time forging ahead into new and unknown territory.
Citing multiple influences for his source material including the pioneering inventions of American experimental composer John Cage, the multi - layered, high energy interplay created by the African balafon ensemble, and the sound collage work of visual artist and composer Cristian Marclay.
Relucent documents Chicago artist Tim Daisy’s most recent investigations into the world of sound exploration.
