different approaches to the electric
guitar combine fearlessly into something
unique. The guitars support and play
against each other with different tones
but equal weight. Elements of new
art music, minimalism, progressive and
punk rock meld into a new sound that is
challenging and compelling but accessible
Goodbye Watson captures all of
these elements in a collection of original
music with compositions from each member
of the group along with collective
improvisations. Jeff Cedrone’s
epic “Wine Dream” opens the collection
with a wild ride through many genres
blending seamlessly with recurring melodic
themes and harmonic approaches.
Chris Cretella’s new art composition “That
Horse You Rode in on Don’t Smell So
Good” showcases the group interplay
in some twisty gnarled melodies and
breathtaking sonic excursions. Bob
Gorry’s “EC” is a tribute to one of the
most important composers of the 20th
century. The title track is a
collective improvisation that is this
group’s stock in trade.
NHIC is a far-reaching collective
of creative musicians forming into a
particular group to play particular music
in a particular moment. NHIC is
interaction, conflict, and harmony.
