Boston-based Greg Kelley premieres his new solo work, Trumpets Sound and I Hear Thunder Boom, a meditation on longing, using a stolen introduction (from the Jackie DeShannon 1963 song, When You Walk in the Room) and amplified trumpet.
Greg Kelley (b.1973, Boston, Mass.) began studying trumpet in 1983, and graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore in 1995. He has since garnered much praise for his unique vocabulary of extended techniques and timbral manipulation. He has performed throughout the United States, Europe, Japan and South America. These travels have led to numerous collaborations, including work with Anthony Braxton, Paul Lovens, Keiji Haino, Eddie Prévost, Kevin Drumm and John Butcher. Kelley plays in a number of groups including Nmperign, Heathen Shame, Cold Bleak Heat and the BSC. His solo recordings include Trumpet (Meniscus), If I never meet you in this life, let me feel the lack (Rossbin), Is Uncomfortable (American Tapes) and I Don’t Want To Live Forever (Gameboy/Little Enjoyer).
