Alfred Jarry

Alfred Jarry is an experimental “jazz” trio that takes its name from the inventor of ’pataphysics—“the science of imaginary solutions that symbolically attributes the properties of objects, described by their virtuality, to their lineaments.” The trio, which is an imaginary solution to the square root of a negative nonet, performs its chimerical species of jazz by taking its cues as much from the electronic sound design of Autechre and Pan Sonic as the idiosyncratic stylings of Thelonious Monk and Charles Mingus. Featuring: Eldritch Priest (guitar, Casino DH-100). Brady Cranfield (Elektron Analog Rytm, Roland HD-1 V-Drums Lite). Mauricio Pauly (bass, electronics)
