Experimental and Improvised music
We are a group of improvising musicians living in Brooklyn, NY. We started playing together in early 2007, with no goal in mind except to see what happens. We all have degrees from the music school at the California Institute of the Arts. The group’s members are:
- Eric Km Clark – Violin
- Travis Just – Saxophone
- Quentin Tolimieri – Piano
- Harris Wulfson – Violin, Mandolin, Guitar
We hope you will you be enraptured or intruigued or offended or entranced or any other thing, by our music. Here are some mp3’s of our sessions:
In October 2008, friends and family collaberated on two CD compilations for Harris’ memorial. This one is a collection of Harris’ classical and new music compositions.

@ the wulf. 1026 s santa fe ave #203 (code 2-0-3 to enter) la ca 90021
the wulf. is located at 1026 south santa fe avenue #203, los angeles,
ca 90021 (southeast downtown close to where the 10 meets the 5). to
enter, dial 203 at the door (labeled michael winter or eric clark on
the sacramento side of the building) and you will be buzzed in (you
can buzz even if you come late and it will not disrupt anything).
also, feel free to bring refreshments and food.
the wulf. is officially a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization. tax
deductible contributions to the extent permitted by law may be made
payable to the wulf. if you are interested in contributing, please
visit our donate page linked on our website. nonetheless, as we are
just getting started with performances at the wulf., we are lacking
performance space necessities (most importantly, seating); so bring a
cushion, pillow, or chair if you want to relax comfortably on the
concrete floor (though we now have a carpet down).
I looked at Harris’s entry on Wikipedia yesterday and discovered that someone had updated it with the following information:
In December 2008, Scrapple Records issued a recording of Jeremy Woodruff’s Tunebook A as realized by the AB Duo (Seth Meicht and Jeremy Woodruff on saxophones and flute), a work dedicated to Wulfson.
Harris composed the soundtrack for Julie Orser’s video installation project titled, The Garden in 2005.
The Garden consists of a three-channel video installation investigating the structure of a three-act narrative by literally dividing it into three separate spatial and temporal components within one installation.
More information on Julie and the project at: http://www.julieorser.com/new/the_garden.html

for the past couple of months, we have been taking time to apply for grants and start wrapping our heads around fundraising. wish us luck and do let us know of any opportunities that we may be unaware of. this effort is to keep the wulf. going strong. to be sure though, it is the amazing community of composers, performers, and listeners that have helped make the wulf. possible. our main goals are to provide better for the performers (fees, equipment and being able to invite out of town guests) and to offset the costs of the organization.
the time has come to start things up again in full force. see below a detailed list of upcoming events starting with a concert of the music of harris wulfson. nonetheless, keep an eye out at our website and for our emailings about other events that may happen spontaneously.

The California E.A.R. Unit presents a concert of young American-based composers
REDCAT-Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater
CalArts’ downtown center for innovative visual, performing and media arts, 631 W. 2nd St. Los Angeles, CA. 90012
Saturday March 21, 2009 – 8:30 PM
“Triumphantly out there… The California E.A.R. Unit is known for taking left turns away from convention.” Los Angeles Times
Inspired by the classic David Bowie pop hit, The E.A.R. Unit surveys fresh new works by young mavericks. The ensemble plays Daniel Wohl’s driving yet oddly sentimental +ou-, Oscar Bettison’s haunting Gauze Vespers veiled with simmering sonorities from dual toy pianos and other innovative orchestrations, Ryan Brown’s Our Friend Adam a verbal play on “Our Friend Atom” a short film that introduced the atom bomb to Ryan as a child who mistook atom to be Adam, Jamu for ensemble and electronics by Christine Southworth drawing from Gamelan melodies, Clay Chaplin’s Rememories, a structured improvisation using 3-D video as a meta-structure for the ensemble based on the relationship of time and memory, Harris Wulfson’s eclectic simplified violin solo 3 Bagatelles, and an exciting new work from the Carlsbad Music Festival Tsar, Matt McBane.
$20 [students $16, CalArts $10] http://www.redcat.org Box Office: 213.237.2800
These performances are funded in part by grants from the City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs, The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, The James Irvine Foundation, LA County Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Argosy Foundation Contemporary Music Fund, BMI Foundation, Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, the Amphion Foundation and other generous supporters.
Note: Harris’ work will be performed by Eric km Clark
In the spring of 2006, Adam Fong, Lewis Keller, Cat Lamb and Harris formed a group at CalArts Called RADU. I know very little about this group but here are some recordings from it. Perhaps the group members can fill me in, and also let me know if any of these pieces have names. The .mp3 titles have some reference notes I added to them to try and figure them out.
The first set is from the CD that Harris compiled and titled CalArts Spring 2006. The second two sets are additional recordings from March 10th, and April 21st 2006. At least 2 of the tracks on the compilation CD came from these recordings but I haven’t yet ascertained if there are any other duplicates.
