Product Notes

About Lily: Guitarist, composer and mixed media artist Lily Maase splits her creative life between Brooklyn and Montreal. When in Brooklyn, she writes for and performs with her acclaimed quintet, theSuiteUnraveling, recently dubbed "seriously remarkable new music" by the Weekly Alibi; collaborates with some of New York's top-call improvisers (Walter Thompson, Cadmium Lace, Brooklyn Soundpainting Orchestra, ZAHA); tours nationally with all-girl jazz sensations the Lascivious Biddes; and dreams up large-scale mixed media projects for video, double quintet, laptop and beyond (hall.of.mirrors, CAVE 2006; re: Disconnect, Roulette 2006). When in Montreal, she writes for and performs with art-rock experimentors Life Without Robots and plays regularly with percussionist Ivan Bamford. Lily is a graduate of the University of North Texas's esteemed jazz studies program, a founding member of the Addtract Consortium, and is endorsed by Godin guitars. Press: 'Aftermath is a superior effort by a very talented composer.' -Budd Kopman, allaboutjazz.com. 'Free-form jazz that [builds] groove and texture without getting cheesy. Maase's guitarwork...[strikes] an impressive balance between improv and restraint.' Sam Machkovech, the Dallas Observer 'If you have seen her live, or heard her recordings, I hope you have realized what a treasure Lily is.' -David West, the Denton Record Chronicle About the music: Aftermath is the product of a full year of writing, rehearsing, and recording two musical series for jazz quintet and electronics. The four pieces in the first series are unified by an electronic loop, and it is the difference in harmonic and improvisational interactions with this loop that paint a picture of the journey we must all make through the process of self-discovery. The second series, 'Lullabye for the electric shepherd: sounds for Philip K. Dick,' is an exploration of some of the conceptual material from the classic movie Blade Runner. Within this suite, we explore the relationship between man and machine, going so far as to use graphic notation to 'program' the band to respond to melodic and harmonic material in different ways. Thanks for listening, Lily and the LM5.
