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 intrigued or offended or entranced or any other thing, by our music. Here are some mp3’s of our sessions (Sessions 5 and 6):

tunebook a

ab duo

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.

“Too Much for a Pogie” by AB Duo. “Tunebook” by Jeremy Woodruff (realized by AB Duo). “Tunebook” includes recordings of Seth Meicht and Jeremy Woodruff on saxophones and flute. Created in New York City and Berlin, Germany from July-September 2007 (Pogie) and July-November 2008 (Tunebook). “Tunebook A” is dedicated to Harris Wulfson (1974-2008).

Scrapple Records AB-Duo – AB Duo’s Pogie Tunebook (2009) is available for purchase online at bandcamp.

the garden – for julie orser, 2005

the garden
Harris composed the soundtrack for Julie Orser’s video installation project titled, The Garden in 2005.

More information on Julie and the project at: http://www.julieorser.com/new/the_garden.html



three channel video & sound installation
5 min. loop
single channel edit 8 min. 43 sec.

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. The project takes the visual form of the silent comedy of Buster Keaton, however displacing the hero into a highly manufactured and stylized black & white set similar to the films of George Méliès (A French director and magician from the early 1900’s who pioneered special effects and helped to push the new form of film into an artistic context). The hero of this video has a series of mishaps as he tries to plant a garden. His misfortunes are with an antagonistic “cinema” that causes sections of the set to malfunction or move unexpectedly. The camera then goes out of focus, follows him, and eventually his world is turned upside-down.

*The Garden can be screened or installed.

Cast: Andrew Love (as Buster Keaton)
Set Designer: Zoe Frasure

the wulf. — news and upcoming events

Dear all,

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.

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
