Tom Blancarte (Denmark/NYC/TX) -
For over a decade, Texan bassist Tom Blancarte has been contributing a vivid pallet of dark frequencies to New York’s creative music scene, both as a freelance performer as well as a member of bands such as the electro-acoustic jazz ensemble the Peter Evans Quintet, the banjo-shred power trio Seabrook Power Plant, New Timbralist free jazz noise trio Totem, the duo Sparks with trumpet phenom Peter Evans, an eerie post-apocalyptic duo with wife Louise Dam Eckardt Jensen (The Home of Easy Credit), improv doom tuba trio The Gate and new Danish post-punk improv quartet Sweet Banditry.
"Blancarte scribbles a continuous line of amplified upright bass without ever taking his pen from the metaphoric paper, a twisting, turning stream... that leaves the listener to pick a path through it... small gritty sounds are scraped, twisted and plucked from Blancarte's bass, with frequent sudden leaps from the minuscule to flamboyant.
