Liz Allbee – Trumpet and Electronics

Liz Allbee is an improviser and composer who plays trumpet, conch, electronics and voice. Her work spans many genres, primarily encompassing improvisation, electronic composition, noise, weird pop, and experimental rock. She is interested in extended song structure, in investigating simple forms which combine to create a subtle complexity, in pre-lingualism and the gestures, loops, and tics of communication.
Besides her solo work, current groups and collaborations include NoSugar w/George Cremaschi, Vagino w/Gino Robair, the Jon Raskin Quartet, the Zoo w/Michael Vorfeld, duos with Chris Heenan and Anthea Caddy, the Splitter Orchester and Georg Graewe’s GrubenKlang Reloaded Orchestra.
Most recent releases include her second solo album ‘Theseus vs.’ (Resipiscent, Fall 2009) and Forced Collapse (Holy Cheever Church, Spring 2010).
She has toured extensively throughout Europe and North America. She lived for fourteen years in the Bay Area and relocated to Berlin in November 2009.

Exploring the future

A message from Clayton Thomas:

After 7 years of rocking this sweet beautiful continent, I'm leaving to rock Sydney one more time.

The relocation would not be right without a 2 day party where i can hug and kiss you all and dance like a maniac and play a marathon of awesome music. As you do.
