water like love



~=<3 is the working title for the duet recordings of Lee Pembleton and Daniel Barbiero. This session was put together by Lee's partner in the Stowe-Pembleton Project, Nobu Stowe, who produced the recordings.

Daniel is an astounding double bassist, deeply grounded in contemporary classical music. Melding this with a love of jazz and psychedelia, Daniel seemd to Nobu, a perfect match for Lee's electronic sounds.

In January 2009, the three went into Daniel's home studio and recorded Feelings like Lipstick Memories like Chocolate, which they hope to have mixed and in the hands of a label by the Summer of 09.

Once roughs are mixed, we'll get them up here.

~=<3 is:

A native of New Haven, CT, Daniel Barbiero has been involved in creative improvised music in the Baltimore-Washington area for several years as a performer, composer, and sometime bandleader. He has worked in a variety of contexts, including modal and post-bop jazz, free improvisation, and world fusion drawing on the Indian classical and Middle Eastern musical traditions; he also backed Blue Note recording artist Greg Osby on a recent DC date. In addition, he has arranged and performed contemporary composed music, including playing in the premier of composer Robert Carl's "Changing My Spots". His solo music has been used as a setting for dance and movement. In addition, he undertook formal study of classical solo bass.

Lee doesn't go in much for writing bios. But feel free to poke around here in The Museum of Viral Memory.

No reviews, as the record's not only unreleased but unmixed. However, below are some pix from the session. There are more at flickr. All these photos were taken by Rie-chan.
