[via press release]

Slow Music was formed in 2005 as a way to create live ambient/textural/environmental music in a live context.  Rieflin describes how, “openness and stillness become a part of the musical vocabulary, as well as density and activity.  It can be both beautiful and surprisingly intense.  And, being improvisational in nature, you never know what will happen next, which makes it all the more exciting.” Innovators to the core, Slow Music has no website, no band photos, nor commercially available music. The best way to listen is to show up.  It’ll be worth it.

moments of glacial beauty…Fripp’s quicksilver tone could be heard weeping underneath the crescendos and toward the end…Buck added his trademark ringing guitar arpeggios...” Variety

The improvisational and experimental concept of Slow Music…was oddly calming, meditative and a true sound alternative.” Hollywood Reporter

The climax of the final improvisation at Seattle’s Showbox is superb: a frenetic tangle of howling notes, ascending arco bass and shimmering cymbals provide a devastating conclusion.” Sid Smith, DGMLive

This Zen supergroup…offered a chance to feel music differently… The listening…offered subtle, oddly soothing rewards.”  Ann Powers, L.A. Times


Bill Rieflin: keyboards & percussion (Bill has played drums w/ R.E.M., Swans, and is a member of the newly reformed King Crimson)

Robert Fripp: guitar, guitar-like things, soundscapes (Robert’s guitaring is legendary, and is a founder of King Crimson)

Peter Buck: guitar and things (Peter’s guitaring in R.E.M. is singular; he’ll probably play some of these shows with a butter knife)

Matt Chamberlain: drums and drum-like things (Matt has played with almost everyone in the world, such as Pearl Jam, Edie Brickell, Critters Buggin, SNL house band; look him up – it’s impressive)

Fred Chalenor: upright bass (Fred is at home with both Hughscore & Hans Eisler)

Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it's hard to recall all of the details. "I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn't actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room... but it wasn't actually here... it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle."
