ATTENTION SCREEN
Modern Jazz Integrating World Music and Classical Textures

 

The quartet Attention Screen integrates jazz, world music, and classical vocabularies into flowing musical explorations.

Their music is composed spontaneously, immediately accessible, and backed by four lifetimes of experience in jazz, classical, world music, and sound design. The group has released three CDs on Stereophile Recordings, an audiophile label.

Although the group is based in New York City, they have performed internationally, and their compositions have received radio airplay from the West Coast of the U.S. to Madrid. Their roster of guest collaborators include: Daniel Carter (horns), Dee Pop (drums), Andy Haas (horns), David Gould (drums), Blaise Siwula (horns), and Mia Theodoratus (harp).

For 2012 and beyond, the group has been adding new instruments (mandolin, glissentar, free bass accordion, and upright bass) to the mix and plan another live recording with a recently refurbished pipe organ. Pre-production has also begun on an upcoming studio project produced by AS bassist Chris Jones and Stereophile editor/AS producer John Atkinson.
