“Tessellations is a record that I’ve wanted to make for some time,” says composer and bandleader Ray Suhy. “It’s a record that encompasses the many different styles that I love to play and listen to, but haven’t yet been able to put together in a cohesive way.”
Suhy is ably assisted on the record by two other like minded musicians: Rolando Alvarado on electric and upright bass and up-and-coming 16 year old drummer Alex Silvergold.
Suhy is a guitarist who plays in metal bands (East Of The Wall, Cannabis Corpse), has recorded free jazz records (with Allen Lowe, Matthew Ship and Lewis Porter) and plays in an 80’s style electro pop band (Dangerous Muse).
“Rolando was my first choice for bass on this project. Like myself, he has a huge love and understanding of many styles of music and his feel and note choices make things very comfortable for me to let loose over.”
“Alex, who was one my students, has reached an incredibly high level of playing in a short amount of time. I was blown away by his chops and his ability to digest difficult passages very quickly. Alex plays very tastefully on the record and when the time is right, he really lets it rip. His playing on ‘Temporal Landrons’ in particular is very impressive.”
Thematically, this record narrates a sleep/dream/awakening cycle as a metaphor for traveling to the far reaches of space and then back towards the sun again. “I wanted the record to express the journey from light to dark. The balance of those two things is really important to me when I create. Too much of one or the other and the expression is out of balance.”
The trio is looking forward to exploring their tunes live as well as recording some more music soon. “The group has a good chemistry going and I can’t wait to follow some new musical paths with them.”
