To commemorate the late Austin Peralta, Alpha Pups’ Daddy Kev has uploaded a recording of the full concert from the Endless Planets release party. The concert took place on February 11, 2011 and features Austin Peralta on keys, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on viola, Sam Gendel on the saxophone, Ryan McGillicuddy on bass, Zach Harmon on drums, and Earnest Blount on electronics. Witness 72 minutes of fantastic live jazz with an introduction by Flying Lotus.
With all eyes on the new Flying Lotus record, let me point you to this exciting side project Steven Ellison has been involved with. Together with LA based animator and multimedia artist Miwa Matreyek he has created a live performance for the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock. Obviously, he’s contributing the music, while Matrayek combines her animations with a shadow play dance performance, creating the illusion of the two being part of the same. Watch the video above captured by longtime Brainfeeder collaborator Theo Jemison.
