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.

Clancy's Irish Pub

7000 West 38th Avenue · Wheat Ridge

Meetup #67 will feature a presentation and performance by Thereminist Victoria Lundy. Well also be at a new venue. Details below.

PRESENTATION: A CENTURY OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC
The theremin was invented by a young Russian physicist named Lev Sergevich Termen (known in the West as Léon Theremin) in 1919, so we're coming up on the 100th anniversary. It’s a electronically straightforward but musically difficult instrument, and it influenced everything that came after it. But what came before it? We’ll take a look at early electronic instruments and see how we’ve come back to the theremin after it almost disappeared in the 20th century, only to experience a renaissance in the 21st.

VENUE
Clancy’s Irish Pub in Wheat Ridge has a great traditional pub feel upstairs with a separate stage and bar down a set of stairs in the basement that will be great for performances. They offer a full pub menu and a variety of beers. Checkout pics and menus here https://iloveclancys.com.

"What do we do with our grief? When we approach others with it, they may recoil from us, wanting to focus on “happy things.” They may crowd around us with support, although the support might not be more than a digital thumbs-up and an awkward smile in public. In most cases, people don’t know what to do, especially if tears are involved."
