Live on Sonarchy
Founded in 2005, the improvising music quartet Instead Of brings together four players from very diverse backgrounds and experiences: Lori Goldston, cello; Angelina Baldoz, trumpet, flute, bass; Jaison Scott; drums; and Torben Ulrich, text/voicing. Bios: Lori Goldston Born in 1963 in New York City, Lori Goldston studied with Aaron Shapinsky and at Bennington College. A frequent collaborator with choreographers, filmmakers and musicians from other disciplines, she has performed and/or recorded with Nirvana, David Byrne, Cat Power, and many others. She is co-founder of the Black Cat Orchestra and Spectratone International, which recently released 'Share This Place' with Mirah on K records. Angelina Baldoz Born in Seattle in 1967, Angelina Baldoz has been an active multi-instrumentalist (trumpet, flutes, electronics) in and out of the Seattle area and abroad, performing and creating in the improvisational music scene as well as the dance community and, more recently, for film. She has collaborated with musicians and movement artists including Deborah Hay, Jason E Anderson, Linda Austin, Gust Burns, Lori Goldston, Ellen Fullman, Paul Hoskin. Angelina composed music for the film 'Aliens Cut My Hair' and also is an organizer for the Seattle Improvised Music Festival. She also plays bass with the group BC Campbell and the Celebrity Orphans. Jaison Scott Born in Seattle in 1972, Jaison Scott has toured and recorded as a member of two additional Seattle bands: the heavy/experimental band Severhead (which has released the CDs 'Severhead' in 2001 and 'Acephal' in 2002); and the death-metal band Sindios (which recently released the CD 'Modern Plagues'). He also was the drummer for the heavy-rock band Murray. His current work with However opens up to the years he's devoted to the study of drummers from Elvin Jones to Hamid Drake. Torben Ulrich Born in 1928 in Denmark, Torben Ulrich's music background includes starting in the Copenhagen-based Delta Jazz Band on clarinet (being taught and scolded by Sidney Bechet) and later adding tenor saxophone and bass clarinet to two bands in his own name. He's been writing and broadcasting over 50 years on jazz, contemporary music and culture; recording amongst others Albert Ayler and Sonny Rollins for Danish Radio; and performing and performing and recording with the Danish avant-garde group Clinch from 2002 to 2004.
