THE GRADUAL PROGRESSIONS OF GREG FOX

More than a drum solo >> the Seventh edition of A L'ARME! will be introduced by NYC-based interdisciplinary artist and drum virtuoso Greg Fox presenting his electro-acoustic Solo magic at the Holzmarkt/Säälchen, 31st July!

On his latest album »The Gradual Progression« (RVNG Intl.), Fox uses tonal palettes, or virtual instruments invented for each piece, in an intuitive and expressive way through Sensory Percussion’s hardware/software system that overlays sensors onto acoustic drums. His Solo work is concerned with finding and creating gestural points of procedural interaction that reconcile seemingly unrelated interstitial spaces, using sound to create and describe emotional and geometric architectural territories. Using the drums as a main interface of communication, in tandem with Sensory Percussion, Fox describes, animates and accesses hidden synesthetic landscapes. Therefore he also works with stunning beautiful instrumental samples, pre-recorded by outstanding colleagues such as acoustic guitarist Michael Beharie or tenor saxophonist Maria Grand.
Welcome Mr. Fox to A L'ARME! Festival Vol.VII
