DENVER ART ROCK COLLECTIVE ALL STARS: I'm playing with the Inactivists AUGUST 17 2019

When the Denver Art Rock Collective was established in 2005, it was designed to help misfit musicians band together in support and celebration of the different, the original, and the weird. Outnumbered in a disinterested rock music scene, the DARC sought refuge in the strange. 
Since those halcyon days, the DARC has seen guitar sales decline, CD sales decline, even MP3 sales decline. Clubs have all but abandoned material support for the musically wayward. While the DARC set itself apart from the mainstream, the mainstream has dried up or moved away entirely. Once the court jester to a larger kingdom, the DARC is now one of the few survivors. There is no need to point out the feet of clay, as the once indomitable genre has now withered to dust. Much like Vaughn Meader in the wake of the JFK assassination, the DARC is adrift, a rebel without a cause. Over the past 14 years, many of the bands have disbanded and rebranded before shuffling off to the great gig in the sky. Newer bands, like Bolonium and Gort vs. Goom have taken their place, fighting to keep the spirits alive.
On Saturday, August 17th, 2019 at Streets Denver, in what will either be a reunion of old or a celebration of continuation, the DARC will be hosting their All-Star event. (Hey now, you’re an art-rock star!) Expect to see active DARC bands, The Plastic Rakes, Gort v. Goom, and the Cattle Axe as well as host/MC DJ Frank Bell. And all-star members of such seminal bands as The Mourning Sickness, New Ancient Astronauts, Yerkish, the Skivvies, Amphibious Jones, and the Inactivists. Maybe we’ll even coax Little Fyodor and/or Babushka out of quasi-retirement. These are artists that have not been forgotten… mostly because people weren’t aware of them in the first place. But the few who did see them (mostly because they were dating one or more of the band members at the time) will never forget them. Maybe not in a good way, but the DARC will not go gentle into that dark night. Art Rock may smell funny, but it’s alive!

ABOUT J.A. DEANE
DinoBlendEdit_1

Beginning his professional career, at the age of nineteen, as a musical arranger and multi-instrumentalist (trombone, flutes, keyboards, percussion), Dino J. A. Deane worked in funk bands around Los Angeles. He also worked as a studio recording musician and as a sideman for Ike and Tina Turner. In the mid 1970’s Deane moved to San Francisco where he became involved, as an improvising artist, in the diverse communities of dramatic theater, modern dance, free jazz and punk rock.
 
Moving to NYC in the early 1980's Mr. Deane pioneered the use of live-electronics, live-looping and live-sampling, simultaneously in three distinct genres of music on the international stage : In the art / punk band Indoor Life, playing trombone controlled synthesizer : In the fourth world music of trumpet master Jon Hassell, as an electro-acoustic percussionist : In the Conduction orchestras of Butch Morris, where he live-sampled the ensembles in performance.  
 
During this period Mr. Deane also worked as a sound designer for dramatic theater, with writer directors Sam Shepard, Julie Hebert and Christoph Marthaler and maintained another long-term relationship in the world of modern dance with dancer choreographer Colleen Mulvihill, creating and performing numerous dance / music works. 
 
In 1997 after collaborating with Butch Morris for twelve years, Deane began conducting his own ensemble, Out of Context (1997 to 2013) and by 2000 he was teaching Conduction in workshops. Since Maestro Morris' passing in 2013, Mr. Deane has committed himself to continuing the legacy of Conduction through education, by providing workshops for conductors, musicians, actors and spoken word artists. He is a co-editor of Morris' book The Art of Conduction and co-produced the 10 CD Box-Set Testament : a Conduction Collection. His current Conduction ensemble is the FluxCrew based in Denver/Boulder.
 
 
ABOUT CONDUCTION  
 
Between 1985 and 2012, Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris created and produced over 200 Conductions worldwide, refining with each performance this unique musical concept. His numerous recordings and projects express a range of accomplishment that distinguishes him, then as now. Butch Morris' Conductions have embraced improvisatory and interpretive musical cultures - from Jazz ensembles, symphonic orchestras, and electro-acoustic, choral and Pop to traditional musicians and instrumentation from North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle-East -.Through it, Morris has engaged an astonishing number and variety of musicians from different cultures and traditions. He defines it this way:
 

“Conduction®: The practice of conveying and interpreting a lexicon of directives to modify or construct sonic arrangement or composition; a structure-content exchange between composer /conductor /instrumentalist that provides immediate possibilities to alter or initiate harmony, melody, rhythm, tempo, progression, articulation, phrasing or form by manipulating pitch, dynamics (volume/intensity/density), timbre, duration, silence, and organization in real-time”.

Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris is now recognized as the principal theorist and practitioner in the evolution of the Art of Conduction® -- a significant innovation in the confluence of jazz, new music, improvisation and contemporary classical music. Mr. Morris's work redefines the roles of composer, conductor, arranger and performer, and bridges the gap between composer, interpreter and improviser. His is a world of synthesis whose music and performance contributions will help to sustain the health, longevity, and creativity of music, culture, and the arts in this, our 21st century.
