Syrinx Effect: “positive role models for young, aspiring female musicians”

By | Music

A swell article about our friends, Syrinx Effect, in this month’s Earshot Jazz. Paul Rauch writes, “The intersection of saxophone, trombone, and an unexplored electronic canvas has provided an abstract poetic base to pursue textural and melodic outbursts, influenced by the ambient sounds of the world around them.”

The new album! The new album! A Sky You Could Strike a Match On. Here’s the link: http://www.syrinxeffect.com/bandcamp/

I think the best thing in this article was this bit, “Beyond breaking down genre barriers, Olson and Siegel are clearly seen as positive role models for young, aspiring female musicians, in a time when gender barriers appear to be falling in the jazz community.”

Check out our audio page to download the Syrinx Effect’s “Song for Dead Sparrow” written in response to Melinda Mueller’s poemThe After.

The After : Now Available

We are excited to officially publish The After today. Our third book, it clearly points the direction we’ve been striving toward and how we are envisioning our books for 2017 and beyond. It’s a sumptuous blend of poetry and art with commissioned music along with it.

Sometimes poetry comes to one for delight or comfort. Certainly, some of the projects we are working with authors, don’t have the intense sadness of this poem. But in this case, I would say it is almost a duty it is to offer this serious meditation on one of the most concerning aspects of climate change: the acceleration of the mass extinction underway.

Our next book was read in the studio yesterday, with the amazing Naomi Moon Siegel behind the controls and dials! We’re so excited to ship “The After” with a CD containing a song commissioned by the Syrinx Effect, a reading of the book-lenght poem by Melinda Mueller, and one additional surprise file that’s guaranteed to smash your heart to bits.

We’re finalizing production and will begin shipping “The After” at the end of September. It will make a special gift for anyone in your life with an interest in poetry and how we’re telling the story of the current mass extinction we’re responsible for.
