A performance by the experimental sound exploration trio Cundy, Homler, West, which features Anna Homler, Chris Cundy and Rich West.
About Anna Homler:
Anna Homler, is a vocal, visual and performance artist living and working in Los Angeles. She has performed and exhibited her work in venues around the world. With a sensibility that is both ancient and post-modern, Homler’s work explores alternative means of communication and is sourced from the realms of myth, dreams, and alchemy. Since 1982 she has collaborated in America with composer/musicians Steve Moshier, David Moss, Ethan James, Steve Roden, and Steve Peters; and in Europe, with the Voices of Kwahn, Steve Beresford, Peter Kowald, Frank Schulte, Richard Sanderson, Geert Waegeman, and Sylvia Hallett, among others.
About Rich West:
Rich West’s recordings began with some of the side activity based around the popular college rock band Camper Van Beethoven in the ’80s, such as the spin-off Monks of Doom or the hopefully never-to-be-forgotten wonderful rock big band Wrestling Worms based out of Santa Cruz. The economics of the latter enterprise were probably enough to make West start his own business just by itself and by the late ’80s, he had gone back to his native Los Angeles where he continued involvement with the rock scene, playing and recording with artists such as Mike Watt, as well as forays into the wild world of avant-garde jazz.
About Chris Cundy
Chris Cundy is a bass clarinettist and saxophonist living in South West England and London working with a broad range of composers, musicians and song writers.
During his formative years he shared a house with self-made musician and artist Billy Childish, and as a teenager became a street busker. It was in this initial DIY environ that he first established a fascination for improvised music. His collaborations with musicians/composers are varied, but perhaps most significantly has been his work with Fyfe Dangerfield which includes the pop band Guillemots as well as devising theatre music for Voices Theatre and Southwark Playhouse, and in the collective free improvisation group Gannets along with drummer Steve Noble, clarinettist Alex Ward and bassist Dominic Lash.
