Jazztronica Live at Pi-Rem / Various
The album features a number of exciting musicians: Derek Sims, Keith Schriener (Auditory Sculpture), Clay Giberson, Luis Tetaje (Acroyear), and Skip vonKuske (Cellotronik). Jazztronica has been a series designed to create a musical community between electronic musicians and jazz musicians interested in expanding their creative palettes. The album itself is a product of blending together improvised jazz with live electronic music that was recorded live during the Jazztronica sessions at Pi-rem. Pi-rem was created by Nelson D'Amour, Gandharv Bhatara, and Kapil Dev as a place where art, music, and ideas could unite in a creative, comfortable environment. Opened in May 2006, Pi-rem continues to push the boundaries in offering Portland a unique experience in the nightlife community.
