Recruiting for Experimental Music Group To Stretch Boundaries

If you're like me
Maybe you don't like the role of the musician as just technician

That there is something outside the notation and measures
and confines of the music that must be explored

And you believe there are forms of performance that are yet to be created

Things that might combine many art forms into one

New instrumentation
New forms of interaction between the instruments
New integrations between musicians, instruments and computer or smartphone apps

Maybe there are ways to present information alongside the music
So as to communicate ideas or philosophies or even humor

This is being put together randomly like this, because I'm not sure it can be expressed otherwise.

My musical background

I've performed on French Horn with the following groups at one point or another....

Cheyenne Symphony, Fort Collins Symphony, Faculty Brass Quintet (as undergrad at Colorado State), CSU Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Diablo Symphony, Napa Symphony, Zephyrus Brass Quintet, Carson Chamber Orchestra, Reno Philharmonic, Sierra Nevada Wind Orchestra.





Here is another sample -- rough, sketchy, altered, experimental as well (1st 40 seconds or so should give you a good idea. After that... not so good).



The selections below are just some things that seem cool. . . but I'm open to way more.





If this sounds like something you'd like to explore, maybe we could chat or share some musical / artistic ideas?

Oh... and just scored some space at HackerLab for practice sessions and recordings!
