Ken Vandermark's Audio One
Audio One is Ken Vandermark’s newest large group project, which follows his work with the critically acclaimed Territory Band and Resonance Ensemble. Vandermark began exploring the potential in compositions for extended ensembles of improvisers in the Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet in 1997. Since then, he has continued to investigate the dynamic and creative discourse between composed and improvised music in bands of ten or more members on an ongoing basis. Unlike the Territory Band and Resonance Ensemble, which were groups comprised of international lineups, Audio One is a Chicago-based unit that affords the band the possibility of rehearsing and performing on a regular timetable, something that was impossible for Vandermark’s previous large ensembles. This has given him the chance to write with free reign, incorporating influences from multiple sources- such as the early AACM, The Ex, Beat Furrer, James Brown, Bernard Parmegiani, Lee Perry, Dick Raaymakers, Wire, Michael Reudenbach, and music from various parts of Africa: Angola, Ethiopia, and Nigeria- then expressing them through a wide range of composing methods and strategies.
