Dre Hocevar: Surface of Inscription

Read "Surface of Inscription" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Drummer, composer Dre Hocevar is a deft improviser who largely produces music that casts his out-of-the-box thinking. With his sextet, including vocalist Charmaine Lee's avant-garde wordless chants, iterations, and conventional singing, we hear a consortium of bizarre sound designs, tonal disparities and radical spins on just about everything imaginable. It's all executed with asymmetrical cadences along ...

Dre Hocevar Trio: Coding Of Evidentiality

Read "Coding Of Evidentiality" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

With his multinational trio, Slovenian drummer Dre Hocevar molds unorthodox instrumentation into a branded musical statement. He integrates an asymmetrical configuration of structure and improvisation, offering fragmented and rolling thematic designs with similes of gravitational pull during the artists' exchanges.

Electronics performer Sam Pluta makes his lone contribution to “Critical Discourse Analysis" and ignites ...

Dre Hocevar Trio: Coding Of Evidentiality

Dre Hocevar Trio: Coding Of Evidentiality

Read "Coding Of Evidentiality" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Given the title of drummer Dre Hocevar's recording, the question arises: can one classify or identify a system's disorder, i.e. entropy? The liner notes give us a hint.
