Number19 is the sound of cellist/vocalist Leah Coloff
and electronic alchemist Sarth Calhoun. This Brooklyn, NY based duo
overlays electronic and organic elements for a new brand of Alternative
Electro-Rock they call "spontaneuos electronica"
Reinventing their songs nightly, live sampling and
processing instruments and vocals, turning arrangements inside out,
they bring that skin-of-your-teeth-seat-of-your-pants attitude to electronic
They were once a rock band; Rhythm & Srings in
all the requisite New York venues. [Brownies, Knitting Factory, Galapagos]
There were arrangements of sound and stories told, while their single
"water" spearheaded their 90,000 mp3.com downloads, paying
for their first album and eventually rising to #18 in the site overall.
Following the independent release of their CD "Suspension,"
LC2 returned to their subterranean Brooklyn [lab/lair/workroom/studio/apothecary]
to brew a new batch of song structures. Devoped and arranged using processed
audio and sampled loops, these improvisations become the reinventions
and again improvisations as the live moment expands somewhere near you.
