Inclusion Principle / Joseph Kudirka – 9 April 2015

By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  No Comments

Martin Archer – electronic keyboards, laptop, saxophones, clarinets, recorders

Hervé Perez – laptop, saxophones

Peter Fairclough – drums and percussion

IP was formed in 2006, released it’s first eponymous CD that year, and follows up with a second release ‘The Leaf Factory Fallback’ in March 2010. subsequent releases include documents of performances: Inclusion Principle – Live at Showroom (2012) and Inclusion Principle – Live at Showroom (2013) Peter Fairclough joined as permanent third member in 2013.

Inclusion Principle operates in a space between electronics, nu-jazz, contemporary electroacoustic music and free improvisation tending towards a minimalist approach.

Both Hervé and Martin play a similar set up of laptop and woodwinds and yet have a different approach to their instruments. Put together, there is a chemistry that inspire and drive their improvisations towards a wide range of soundscapes. the choice of instruments and sounds on their palette allows them to dramatically change their music between beat driven electro, minimal and microtonal improvisation via electroacoustic experimentation and nujazz. There is something for all in their music and, first and foremost, an enjoyment of sound and performance, which carries across and touch their audience, whatever the style they may adopt.

We decided to base the name on a theory of the research physicist Wolfgang Pauli. We found a correlation in that we both worked with a digital scalpel on fields of microsounds; a science which took both our instruments and processed field recordings a little closer to the chemistry of natural sounds, complete with harmonic DNA sequences and rhythmical fragments quantum-jumping from cell to cell.

In the end, our main source of inspiration will always be deep listening and a fascination for the science of the natural world. Sometimes, sitting in silence for hours in the crest of birdsongs or in wafts of windy harmony is more profitable than practicing scales. And to a certain extent, each of our improvised performances plays itself as an unspoken intense inner excitement. And we leave it to rest, a little calmer, as if something had happened in the space between thoughts…
