Oakland Freedom Jazz Society Presents:
David improvises in solo voice, with no instruments or processing, unfolding sensitive conversations between voice and space. The improvisations explore the continuum between sonic, phonetic shape and plastic shape as perceived in space, often employing movement as part of this articulation.
Bassist, composer, vagabond, CJ Boyd uses low-end loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Though solo performance takes up the bulk of his time and effort, he also plays in the bands Desert Center, Kurva Choir, Rhonya, and Move. His non-stop travels between North America and Europe have been propelled by vans, cars, trains, buses, planes, and boats, but most of all a commitment to ceaseless discovery and re-invention. His oceanic sounds provide a home for the homeless and journeys to the homebound.
