“Combination Tones” is the new work by composer/performer Tom Hamilton. In combining his electronic sound with 2 longtime collaborators, New York trombonist Peter Zummo and St. Louis percussionist Rich O’Donnell, Hamilton continues exploration of the improvisational territory defined in his previous CAMA events. The musicians form a confluence of changing sonic ideas and moods in the midst of Hamilton’s sonic environment, embellished by sound designer Bill Schulenburg.
Hamilton often explores the interaction of many simultaneous layers of activity, prompting the use of “present-time listening” on the part of both performer and listener. Hamilton was a 2005 Fellow of the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Umbria.
