The Entire Universe
The Entire Universe
The Entire Universe is Jeffertitti of the mighty Corners—and of Jeffertitti’s Nile and lots of legit sidemanning gigs, too—creating an entire universe of his own on a record so solo he played everything himself. The result is this sparkling little single, equal parts Bowie glam, Barrett psychedelica and Bomp!-y garage wave revival delivered with confidence, power and an irresistible hook. And now Jeffertitti has turned the Entire Universe into an entire band with the addition of Evan Snyder and Eric Lodwick - L.A. Record
Greg Fox
Greg Fox
Greg Fox is a multi-instrumentalist, interdisciplinary artist, and teacher born and based in New York City. A versatile and prolific creative, Fox studied percussion with Guy Licata, Thurman Barker, Marvin “Bugalu” Smith, has a B.A. in Integrated Arts from Bard College, and has toured, recorded and released numerous records with Liturgy, Guardian Alien, ZS, Ex Eye, Skeletons, Teeth Mountain, Dan Deacon, Colin Stetson, Ben Frost, and many more.

Fox’s solo work is concerned with finding and creating gestural points of procedural interaction that reconcile seemingly unrelated interstitial spaces, using sound to create and describe emotional and geometric architectural territories. Using the drums as a main interface of communication, in tandem with Sensory Percussion, Fox describes, animates and accesses hidden synesthetic landscapes.

The Gradual Progression is Fox’s latest collection of music released on RVNG Intl. On the album, Fox uses tonal palettes, or virtual instruments invented for each piece, in an intuitive and expressive way through Sensory Percussion’s hardware/software system that overlays sensors onto acoustic drums. Throughout the record, Fox’s rigorous inner rhythms serve as the mandalic vessel for unbound expression and arrangement. An exploration of selfhood that employs new methods of externalizing his polyrhythmic virtuosity into non-physical realms signals both a reconciliation of disparate musical ventures and a new elevated stage in the artist’s oeuvre.

Fox’s unique ability to combine percussion, organic sounds, and technology coalesced on his 2014 album Mitral Transmission. Over multiple visits to the basement lab of master jazz drummer and holistic healer Milford Graves, lab and medical equipment were used to make extremely hi-fidelity recordings of his resting heartbeat. Custom software rendered the waveforms into a rich MIDI score, which was then used as the basis for the compositions found on the record- a work that can be unflinchingly explosive, fluttering and merciless in one instance, yet poised and withholding in the next.
