Tim will be appearing at the 2014 Jazz: The Second Century festival in Seattle, WA. Tim, along with bassist Michael Marcus, drummer Max Wood, and pedal steel/guitarist Lucien LaMotte will be performing Thursday, July 24 at Chapel Performance Space, The Chapel of the Good Shepard in Wallingford (Seattle). 8:00 pm.
I am happy to announce that all sound design and music production services are being moved to their own website. A link to the music production website will be available once the new site is live. Recording/production clients may continue to contact Tim directly at (408) 203-8699 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please check soon back for updates.
Nothing retro here, just good old-fashioned individuality.
Spirited, worldly, sensible and sensitive…..Volpicella doesn’t sound like someone else, nor does his music…..
The painstaking effort behind the retuning serves an extra-musical agenda: ”to split open and decolonize/the sacred 88,” as Mr. Modirzadeh describes it in a poem printed on the album’s inside flap.
Volpicella appears on only two tracks, but it’s enough to make a big impression. His post-chromodal lines heard on “Interlude IV” are done with such unusual phrasings on his guitar, it would have been worth further investigation.
