FOR TICKET PURCHASE, DIRECTIONS & FURTHER INFO:
Philadelphia-based guitarist and composer Tim Motzer
finds infinite joy in diversity. His output as a leader and sideman crisscrosses multiple musical universes, including jazz, fusion, prog, hip-hop, soul, electronica, and the avant-garde.
Motzer gets to explore these genres and the intersections between them via his ubiquitous presence in the wildly deep and varied Philly scene. He also traverses manifold territories through the many albums released on his own 1k Recordings label, such as the rhythmically diverse soundscapes populating the Tilomo release, and, more tellingly, as Fractured Reverb Underground (FRU). The sole FRU CD comprises electronic studio experiments from 1999 — a decade ahead of their time — generously tipping its hat to the Orb's Alex Patterson thanks to its psychedelic clouds of mercurial ambient textures.
Motzer has also worked on releases by British singer-songwriter David Sylvian, and the ongoing "Secret Rhythms" project comprising electronica/dub luminary Burnt Friedman and ex-Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit. Of more recent vintage is his superb collaboration with German Touch guitarist and fellow sonic explorer Markus Reuter, "Descending", a deeply sublime and stunningly beautiful work that crosses paths with Brian Eno, Frippertronics, Supersilent, and David Sylvian. All of the above illustrates a true sonic nomad at work.
