Self-Imposed Exile

Experimental Chamber Trio
Blending electro-acoustics with composed and improvised scores, and mixed-media canvases. First release on A-side Records, "Live from Steinway Hall" reviewed by Alberto Bazzuro on All About Jazz: https://www.allaboutjazz.com/live-from-steinway-hall-self-imposed-exile-a-side-records-review-by-alberto-bazzurro.php

Aaron Kruziki- saxophones, clarinet, bass clarinet 

Jakub Rojek- compositions, piano

Shaun Sutkus- live sound design

Video Notes:

"This was captured with a novel process, which is one microphone to one speaker with acoustic mixing. The piano and saxophone microphones fed the live processing and were projected through a pair of custom Acuvox electro-acoustic speakers. These merge electronic signals with traditional instruments to create a virtual acoustic ensemble by mimicking the spatial, temporal and transient parameters of physical sound generators."
