VWCR: Ken Vandermark / Nate Wooley / Sylvie Courvoisier / Tom Rainey

August 2019

What blossoms from a single meeting of four musical iconoclasts? Often nothing more than a collage of four distinct voices producing their own fireworks in the vicinity of each other. With VWCR, however, the result of, what seemed like, a one-off gig and recording was an instant melding of four musical minds into something rich and original. In other words, it was a band. Instigated by Ken Vandermark, the quartet came together during a week residency at New York's iconic performance venue, The Stone, and an instant rapport was evident. Vandermark, Wooley, and Courvoisier each brought three compositions and Rainey brought his drumming, compositional enough as it is. The result, Noise of our Time, released in 2018 on Intakt, is a cohesive and exciting group that the listener gets to experience through the lens of each of the performer's specific musical language. Live, VWCR combines the individual fireworks into a color wholly their own.
