“Near To Each is a wonderfully composed album… remarkably performed…
a quartet that is playing individually and collectively at the height of their powers.”
-Jon Fielder, KLANG
“Together the musicians smash any lines between standard new music language and free jazz practice, finding an elusive middle ground that’s packed with surprises and quicksilver interplay.”
-Peter Margasak, Bandcamp Daily
“I think I might have just found David Bowie’s next band and it’s a goddamned pity he’s not around to take advantage… get your mind around Bowie working with Modney, a brilliant violinist here making his debut as a composer… the results are a series of gripping dynamic pieces of chamber music that incorporate drones, spiky duels between instruments, pounding ensemble work, and moments of crystalline beauty.”
-Jeremy Shatan, An Earful
I’m excited to announce my new album, Near To Each, featuring nine compositions written for Ingrid Laubrock (saxophones), Mariel Roberts (cello), Cory Smythe (piano), and myself. The album, featuring images by Alexander Perrelli, is available now on CD and digital formats on Carrier Records.
