One instrument, three different styles of music. On Friday October 9th
Cafe Tattoo (The Baltimore City Paper's pick for the Best Jazz Club for
1998) will be hosting an exciting and diverse evening of guitar music.
FingerPaint, The Dark Aether Project, and Tony Geballe converge from
diverse musical backgrounds to share their love of sonic exploration. 
Fragments of musical vision presented as one whole evening of enticing
FingerPaint is guitarists/synthesists Steev Geest and Patrick Smith.
Exploring the edges of electronic music and spontaneous composition, their
improvisatory soundscapes have been described as "sinister and alien" by
the Philadelphia City Paper.  

See http://www.fingerpaint.net/ for more information about FingerPaint.  
The Dark Aether Project features Adam Levin (Warr 8 String Touch Guitar/
Loops), Yaman Aksu (Fretted and Fretless Guitars/Guitar Synth), and
Brian Griffin (Drums).  Progression magazine says "...jazz-inflected,
often minimalistic...foreboding soundscape[s]...  classy...offers mature
musicianship without pretentiousness."  Expose says "...intense and
blistering lead work...amazing loops and shimmering textures that are at
once haunting and dreamlike...worthy of attention." 

The Dark Aether Project will be joined by special guest vocalist Ray
Weston (Echolyn/Still/Always Almost)

Tony Geballe has been a member of the Turkish music trio Dostlar and the
New York Indonesian Consulate Gamelan. As a member of Robert Fripp and the
League of Crafty Guitarists, Tony has made several recordings and toured
Israel, Europe and the US, as well as appearing on local and national
radio and television shows. 

The 12-string guitar is primarily known as a folk instrument, but Tony
combines elements of classical and jazz techniques, harmony and form with
the shimmering and resonant sound of the instrument, to create a unique,
compelling and satisfying music. Tony 's CD of solo 12-string guitar
music, "Native of the Rain," has been released by Discipline Global Mobile

"Deftly bridges the chasm between pop accessibility and meticulously
crafted musicianship. Geballe's compositions, awash in dazzling, evocative
sonic cascades, demonstrate just how far one exemplary musician can push
the musical envelope armed with only one 12-string acoustic guitar." 


       "...if one strives at hearing for the sake of constant virtue,
       out of seeking liberation from cyclic existence, gradually one 
                           becomes a Hearer."
