FFEAR (Forum for Electro-Acoustic Research) is an improvising quartet co-led by acclaimed soloists and frequent collaborators Chris Washburne and Ole Mathisen. Their collaborations have been called a “pointedly cosmopolitan post-bop collective” (The New York Times). FFEAR’s objective is to explore new sonic possibilities by adopting contemporary classical compositional techniques into an improvisational setting. Conventional uses of meter, tonality, and harmony are replaced with multiple meters, microtonality, and open templates of form to create a fresh approach to improvised music. FFEAR delights in blending and blurring the divide between jazz and contemporary classical music to produce a truly original voice.
