Drew Ceccato / Kyle Motl
Drew Ceccato (saxophones) and Kyle Motl (bass) have been active as a unit in numerous avant-garde and improvisational ensembles, from drummer Abbey Rader’s new quartet, to a multi-aesthetic improvising ensemble with cellist Robert Jedrzejewski pianist Tobin Chodos, and the free improv grindcore trio Three Corpse Piledriver. In duo, they fuse varied improvisational energies in a dense and quickly evolving dialog. Their debut duo album, Orogeny, marks both the synthesis and collision of these experiences as well as the complete erosion of boundaries.
“With Ceccato and Motl playing, no cliche dares enter the room.”
— Stephen Malagodi, Spectacular Sound
