Notes

Free Jazz Bitmaps is a precess-based publication exploring the nuances of collaboration, genre, and iteration. Vol 1. featured six tracks by Nick Butcher built from micro-samples of house and jazz records found in Chicago. These collaged recordings were paired with solo reinterpretations of six chicago improvisors; Jason Adasiewicz, Tim Daisy, Keefe Jackson, Mike Reed, Jason Roebke, and Jason Stein. The result was a track by track experimental deconstruction of Butcher's music, two steps removed from the original source. Vol. 2 continue this trajectory. The solo improvisations performed by Keefe Jackson (tenor saxophone), Jason Roebke (double bass), Tim Daisy (marimba), and Jason Stein (bass clarinet) for Vol. 1 are now used as source material for new music.
