CalArts Jazz Capitol CD Project
Petrichor is an experimental electroacoustic trio of oboist Breana Gilcher, guitarist Alkis Nicolaides, and bassist Miller Wrenn. Their performances explore the intersections of diverse musical logics and traditions, ranging from Baroque repertoire and free jazz to avant-garde chamber and noise musics, through unbridled improvisation and original compositions. Firmly positioned between the traditional collaborative models of chamber ensemble and jazz trio, Petrichor seeks to develop a new creative archetype for a 21st-century ensemble — moving fluidly through a musical world devoid of boundaries.
After graduating from the Berklee college of Music I wanted to record some of the music I composed during my studies. After a couple of rehearsals at the New England Conservatory and a weird experience at an "atmospheric" recording studio we recorded two tracks; 'Morse Code Gone Wrong' and 'The Cricket'. In addition to my own music, I transcribed, arranged, and recorded music by one of my favorite groups 'Kneebody'.
