DUO with thomas dimuzio
READY BOX: a box placed near a gun
(as on a ship) to hold ammunition kept ready for immediate use
Thomas Dimuzio - electronics, sampling
Phillip Greenlief - tenor saxophone,
the duo with thomas dimuzio gives me a chance to work with an electronic musician that can move easily between live sampling and sound production from an analog synthesizer, mainly the buchla rig that thomas uses.
we've been playing live shows for a few years and have a recording project in post-production that we recorded at fantasy studios in 2017. we're really happy with it!
this is a kind of dream project for me, the result of a long period of investigation as to how the saxophone can work in the musical language of electronic music and also i get to do it with thomas - who is just one of the best people on the planet, musically and also with his kindness and generosity.

Thomas Dimuzio is a musician, composer, improviser, sound designer, mastering engineer, label proprietor, and music technologist residing in San Francisco, California. Inspired as much by John Cage as Led Zeppelin, Dimuzio's music is like a sonic excursion that transports the listener into other worldly aural realms. “His work has a narrative, filmic tug that will draw you into its dark corners, ears alert… brilliant and rarely less than entertaining.” (Peter Marsh, BBC) His recordings have been released internationally by ReR Megacorp, Asphodel, RRRecords, No Fun Productions, Sonoris, Drone Records, Record Label Records, Odd Size, Seeland, and other independent labels. Among his collaborators are Chris Cutler, Dan Burke, Joseph Hammer, Alan Courtis, Nick Didkovsky, Due Process, Voice of Eye, Fred Frith, David Lee Myers, Phillip Greenlief, Alaric, ISIS, 5uu's, Matmos, Wobbly and Negativland. Recent performances include AngelicA Festival Internazionale di Musica, San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, CCRMA at Stanford, Gray Area Buchla Festival, and Ende Tymes Festival of Experimental Art and Liberation, and hosted KPFA’s monthly radio program Frequency Modulation Radio.
