Composer/guitarist Brendon Randall-Myers, in collaboration with electric guitar quartet Dither, releases "dynamics of vanishing bodies," a 37-minute piece deploying a full gamut of techniques. Several alternate tunings, retuned during the work, a battery of effects and looping devices, and feedback all figure prominently in this powerful and deeply personal work. Brendon Randall-Myers is a Brooklyn-based composer and guitarist with an affinity for complex, cathartic, endurance-based music at various intersections of rock, experimental, theater, and classical. Described as "fiercely aggressive but endlessly compelling" (The San Francisco Chronicle), "intricate and dynamic" (I Care If You Listen), "massive in it's impact" (Sarasota Herald-Tribune), and "an exhilarating blast of energy" (Chicago Classical Review), his music aims to induce trance/flow states via repetition and amplification, inspired by experiences on 20-mile runs and performing in punk and metal bands. Brendon has written for classical musicians - pianists (Miki Sawada), string quartets (Friction Quartet), chamber ensembles (Exceptet), and orchestras (Chicago Symphony, Omaha Symphony) - as well for cross-genre/experimental groups like Bang on a Can, Dither, and Bearthoven. His work has received support from the Jerome Foundation, New Music USA, New York State Council for the Arts, the Guitar Foundation of America, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and ASCAP.
