Black Chamber is a Portland, Oregon-based trio playing music that blends the improvisational sounds of modal jazz with the moods and rhythms of downtempo electronica.
Black Chamber is:Brian McCauley – drumsChris Gustafson – upright bassDavid Binnig – trumpet and samples
The band filters the sounds of classic post-bop jazz through their own post-rock, post-hip-hop musical experiences, blending live improvisation with scratchy samples. With no traditional chordal instrument, the group focuses on deep rhythms, expansive melodies, and atmospheric textures, while using electronic processing to expand the harmonic possibilities of the trumpet.
This is my sound on a rainy day,on a mind travelling day..
on anticipating nights to cool off
in poetry lonesomeness
Oh i love my trumpets and samples and downtempo feelings
