Live at The Firehouse Space

Iluso Records presents an outstanding live concert recording by Álvaro Domene and Briggan Krauss at the Firehouse Space in Brooklyn NY.

Alto sax demon Briggan Krauss (H-Alpha, Sex Mob, Bill Frisell) has been an integral part of New York City’s musical fabric for over 20 years. Krauss connects the extreme edges of saxophone technique with the unexplored tonal possibilities of the instrument. He has recently released his first solo recording, "Art of the Saxophone Vol. 1: The Tunnel" in which he documents his uniquely innovative approach to improvisation and the saxophone. Highly sought after in the studio and on stage, he has worked with a diverse range of artists from John Zorn, Robin Holcomb, Satoko Fuji and Anthony Coleman to Rufus Wainwright, Trey Anastasio, Antony, and Medeski, Martin and Wood.

Having recently arrived in New York City, young Spanish guitarist/composer Álvaro Domene is quickly making a name for himself on the creative music scene. His band 'Desvelo' is now a regular player on the city’s creative music circuit, showcasing Domene's compositional brilliance and exceptional playing. Other recent projects include dMU, Sierpe, Lenticlouds, and Zöbik-3. Domene has worked with Briggan Krauss, Michaël Attias, Jim Black, Josh Sinton, Karl Berger, Teun Verbruggen, Ben Goldberg, Mike Pride, David Binney, Rick Parker, Andrew Drury, Mike Caratti, Kim Cass, and Devin Gray among many others.

Drawing on each other’s distinct musical experience, the unique voices of Domene and Krauss combine here in a stunning performance of uninhibited improvisation in which the duo’s innate connection sees them push each other along a seemingly perpetual trajectory of artistic exploration. This live recording captures all the intense energy of the concert, which like the duo’s other recent outings, was performed to a captivated audience.
