Ricksplund + A Flawed Contraption

Ricksplund is a Provo, Utah-based improvising duo consisting of Steven Ricks (trombone, electronics) and Christian Asplund (viola, piano/keyboards, electronics). Ricksplund has existed for almost 15 years.  The most recent manifestations of this duo involve one improvising on their particular acoustic instrument (trombone or viola, respectively), while the other improvises adding effects, samples, and loops created from the live instrument’s sound.

A Flawed Contraption is a duo consisting of Seattle virtuosos/luminaries Greg Campbell (vibraphone and percussion) and Jesse Canterbury (clarinets).

The two duos will team up to premiere a new stopwatch-based, comprovised quartet by Asplund from his Ghost Speech series.
