Make It So 19:20
Tresillo 27:10


The long awaited second release from the Peter Evans Quintet. Four new compositions commissioned by the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Grant and recorded at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in Troy, New York. The album is named after a novel by Frank Herbert concerning a mission into space to create an artificial consciousness, a mission designed to use planned failure as a springboard to new levels of creativity. Destination: Void is an epic, cinematic synthesis of eccentric personalities, sci-fi, elaborate compositions, dense improvisation and psychedelic sound design.

12 (for Evan Parker) is an homage that uses a melodic phrase often found in the saxophonist's music as the foundation for a labyrinth of activity. The piece explores the side of Parker's personality interested in acrostics, word play and puzzles.

For Gary Rydstrom and Ben Burtt is a monumental solo vehicle for Sam Pluta, and is dedicated to two of the most innovative sound designers in science fiction and action cinema.

Make it So, modeled loosely on the overlapping orbital cycles of celestial bodies, plays out as a series of musical holograms, images appearing, disappearing and reappearing slightly transformed, moving in and out of phase with each other.

The final piece, Tresillo, uses it's eponymous rhythmic pattern- found in music all over the world and particularly music which traces its roots to the African diaspora- as a kind of basic musical genome which replicates and transforms itself through the musical drama, featuring every member of the ensemble in turn.

This music was rehearsed and performed extensively from 2011 to 2013 and culminated with a recording residency and concert at the state of the art facility EMPAC in March 2013. Destination: Void is the culmination of the the second chapter of the Peter Evans Quintet, and also serves to introduce a new member to the band, the spectacular Ron Stabinsky on the piano and prepared piano.
