Bow River Falls is a collaborative ensemble recorded during a teaching residency at the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music in Banff, Alberta. The ensemble includes trumpeter Dave Douglas, clarinetist Louis Sclavis, cellist Peggy Lee, and drummer/laptop musician Dylan van der Schyff. Reflecting the natural beauty of Banff, the musicians create atmospheric and organic pieces that reference '60s free jazz and contemporary classical chamber music – often recalling the iconic Ornette Coleman Quartets and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. The musicians utilize their instruments in unconventional ways, employing extended techniques to summoning growls, bleeps, and pinched squelches. Additionally, the laptop inclusions by van der Schyff are done live in the studio and have an organic quality, blending gurgling white noise, static, and other visceral found sounds with his acoustic percussion.
