Boston based quartet BOLT has been working locally since 2011, focusing solely on free improvisation. Using the distinctive timbral combination of two stringed instruments with the lyricon (an analog electronic wind synthesizer from the 1970s) saxophone and percussion, BOLT’s group sound balances anywhere between the energy-orgies of free jazz and the sparse soundscapes of electronic minimalist improv. In the more expressive moments of a BOLT set the music hints to Boston’s influential master of microtonal improvisation Joe Maneri. In the more quiet introspective moments one could here a modern day extension of the late 1940’s experiments with free improvisation of the Tristano school.

This recording was deliberately conceived to create a different listening experience than a live concert. The 19 takes of this CD were carefully chosen from 36 improvised pieces recorded during a recording session in the summer of 2013. Shuffling the pieces in random order gives the listener a fresh perspective on the music every single time, adding an aleatoric, and more compositional element to the music.
