Domingues and Kane

FRINGE Music in the Library :: Domingues and Kane

Amy Domingues and Dennis Kane mesh the tranquil sounds of a 500 year old stringed instrument with electronics to create an organic blend of technology and musicianship that transcends genre. Their music is built on musical traditions equally ancient and contemporary. Amy Domingues creates hauntingly delicate melodies performed with an electronically treated viola da gamba (a predecessor to the cello), while Dennis Kane constructs rich soundscapes and accompaniments via electronics and keyboards.
Puff Pieces

FRINGE Music in the Library:: Puff Pieces

Puff Pieces are a three piece post-punk band comprised of longtime D.C. musicians (featuring members of El Guapo, Supersystem, E.D. Sedgwick, Weed Tree, and Caution Curves, among others). The band plays a kind of kraut rock-inspired art-punk, with bits of nervous rhythms combined with angular riffs and jangly outbursts. Puff Pieces strives to destroy the bland hegemony of their city’s condo-crazed culture with a mix of melody and nervous dissonance.

Donvonte McCoy is one of DC’s most agile trumpeter and probably its most contemporary-minded jazz trumpeters and composers. Donvonte has performed with many top names in music such as Curtis Fuller, Lionel Hampton, Jason Moran, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Steve Williams and Eric Wyatt, to name a few. Donvonte leads his quintet every Friday and Saturday night in a late-night soul-jazz dance party on the top floor of Eighteenth Street Lounge. That gig gave his first recording as a leader, “3rd Floor” its name, its inspiration and its obsession with movement.
