We are super excited to be releasing the EP FOUR INCH function by Hiko Tanizawa. We first heard Hiko when we opened up submissions for our last compilation and we absolutely loved what he was doing. Hiko is based in California and, like many of our artists, is an active member of the Monome community. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
The Leap is privileged to release the latest album from composer, programmer, and improvisational auteur William Fields. The album name “Coincidence” was born from the musical system developed for this release by William and the theme of “things happening at the same instant”. Each song was produced in a single take and has been mastered and captured here for your listening pleasure.
We’re excited to announce that William Fields will be releasing his latest album, Coincidence, with The Leap on December 1st. The name Coincidence was born from the improvisational musical system developed by William and theme of “things happening at the same instant”. We’ve been following William’s music for a while now and have always been impressed with the emotion, dynamics, and spontaneity that he brings to his work. These attributes are an integral part of his music and can be heard in his latest few live appearances: –https://soundcloud.com/william-fields/live-at-philly-open-mic-11-12-2014 –https://soundcloud.com/william-fields/live-at-the-leap-cambridge-ma-august-22-2014 Stay tuned for the full album!
one lifts one’s hand across one's face
one gestures toward a wall
one extends a gift, one strokes a beard
one crosses a square of other ones
ones in white remove ones’ gowns
one covers oneself, ones come to touch
one other one speaks to sky...
The Leap #3 went off without a hitch. Hosted in the industrial co-working space, Industry Lab, we saw performances from Jeff Allen, Source Control, mtn, William Fields, and Morgan Packard. We’ll post the full audio recording to our SoundCloud soon. Until then, enjoy this especially dynamic performance from William Fields.
