Here is footage from the premiere of my pice “Alluvial Commons” at the 2014 Soundwave Biennial in San Francisco. Chuck Johnson on pedal steel guitar, Marielle Jakobsons and Christina Stanley on violin, Jason Hoopes on electric bass and Ben Bracken on electronics
I am running a holiday special on my two solo releases on vinyl – “A Struggle Not a Thought” and “Crows in the Basilica” plus a free download of my soundtrack to the HBO film “Private Violence.” You can send it as a gift too, all for $25.
Chuck Johnson is a composer and musician residing in Oakland, CA. He approaches his work with an ear towards the faults and instabilities that reveal latent beauty, and with a focus on American Primitive guitar, experimental electronics, and "folk minimalist" composition.
