TERRENCE MCMANUS

“McManus is one of New York’s latest guitar heroes” -All About Jazz

“I am convinced he represents a new voice on the instrument.” -Gerry Hemingway

“…rich, unconscious empathy……language that takes in everything from free and Noise to the cheery alt rock” -The Wire (UK)

“…subtle, highly textural…” -Time Out New York

“…an improvisational guitarist who’s constantly looking for new, unexpected ways to
make music…He comes off like a 21st century extension of Brian Eno…” -The Trenton Times

“exploring a sonic vocabulary that amalgamates the cool minimalism of a sonic cloud chamber with bursts of the impassioned poetry of a seasoned flamenco or blues practitioner and raw, fascinating sounds drawn from light industry and scientific inquiry or inspired by deep nature. “ -The New York City Jazz Record

“…this performance was hot with its own life force.” -The New York Times

“…really in a great direction! Great to hear.” -John Abercrombie

“McManus is a product of the free-formish improvisational jazz scene and he is able to run with the best of that pack…this kind of freewheeling, minimalist improvisational style is a potent mix of jazz, classical and rock. Drawing equally from Jimi Hendrix, Steve Reich and Derek Bailey, McManus and company seem hell-bent on not only creating a unique group sound, but also redefining the role and accepted notions of their respective instruments.” -All About Jazz New York

CONCRETE BEDLAM 
is a post-rock texture and groove exploration by three guys listening to each other while you listen to them.

Andrew Campbell – bass guitar
Andrew Campbell is a study in contrasts. While currently a professional musician and composer in the Los Angeles area, he has also worked “in a previous life” at a couple of the world’s top marketing agencies in New York City. In addition to vibrating the low frequencies, Andrew has studied guitar with jazz great Steve Khan and has produced and played on numerous recordings in film and television in the US and around the world.

Fabio Poian – drums
A native of Trieste, Italy, drummer Fabio Poian has toured across the US, Mexico, Italy, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, and the Czech Republic. In 2007 Fabio won the Under-18 final in the “Drummer of Tomorrow” competition in Bologna, Italy, organized by Mapex Drums. In 2009, he moved to the United States to study at the Los Angeles Music Academy, where he currently works as an ensemble workshop player, in addition to his nearly constant gigging all around Los Angeles.

Matt Piper – guitar
Multi-instrumentalist Matt Piper became known to many musicians in Los Angeles while presenting music with Rocco Somazzi at Rocco’s first self-named club. As a member of the band World Ambient Symphony, Matt appeared with percussionist Koorosh Daryaie and bassist Daren Burns on their album Random Walk Out of the Sun, playing laptop-computer-mangled guitar and keyboards. This summer he completed his first solo album, a continuous set of original psychedelic electronic dance music called Calibration Tones.
