“Truly inspired.” SF Bay Guardian
John Ingle (San Francisco) and Dan Joseph (New York) have collaborated since the late 1990s, developing a unique style of pattern-based improvisation and collaborative composition. With the unusual instrumentation of alto saxophone and hammer dulcimer, their music is built upon fixed modes and simple melodic figures from which they develop and improvise their collaborative works. With a sound combining elements of minimalism, free jazz and Indian raga, they have developed a devoted following in New York City and in the Bay Area where their collaboration began. They have appeared at New Langton Arts, the Headlands Center for the Arts, the Berkeley Arts Center, Knitting Factory Los Angeles and other California venues. In New York they have performed at Roulette, Issue Project Room and the other venues. Their CD trancepatterns with guests India Cooke, violin, and Miya Masaoka, laser-koto, is now available direct from the artists via Bandcamp.
