[Soundcloud Group Featured Track: Improv Ork, ‘Graphic Music’]

As the 2012 edition of Infringement Festival nears, how about we take a look back at a great performance from last year’s fest?

Here is one that Buffalo’s John Bacon, percussionist  and member of Improv Ork, uploaded to our Soundcloud group. “Graphic Music” features an all-star cast, including J.T. Rinker, Jonathan Golove, Dan Bassin, Steve Baczkowski, Joe Rozler, and of course Mr. Bacon.

You can catch Improv Ork again this year on Thursday, August 2 at Hallwall’s.

Remember the Upstate Soundscape is an Infringement “venue” and will feature in-studio performances on tomorrow’s show and next week’s. Stay tuned for more info.

From Bacon’s Soundcloud site: [“Graphic Music” was] performed by Improv Ork as part of the Buffalo Infringement Festival July 2011 at Soundlab Buffalo, NY. Electronic, percussion, wind and string instruments coexist, combine, conflict, collaborate all with the intent to create a new sonic landscape that is environmentally freindly. Featuring J.T. Rinker, Jonatahn Golove, Dan Bassin, Steve Baczkowski, Joe Rozler, John Bacon.
