Eavesdropping: Forced Collapse
Forced Collapse is the New American Improvisation/Post-Lachenman Extended Technique Laboratory/Michigan Electronic Noise Made Real Through Acoustic Instruments Trumpet and Guitar duo of Liz Allbee and Christopher Riggs.
Liz Allbee is a voracious musician whose work spans many genres, encompassing new music, improvisation, electronic composition, Asian folk and pop, noise, minimalist, free jazz and experimental rock. She plays in the pop band Neung Phak, in the experimental Neanderthal troubaduo Marauder and Alibi, and in the Jon Raskin Quartet, and has performed and recorded with a wide array of musicians.
Oberlin Conservatory of Music graduate Christopher Riggs draws equally from the worlds of Michigan Noise, European Free Improvisation, and his classical training to create a language of effects-pedal-less extended guitar techniques that are uniquely his own. Current collaborations, some of which are documented on his Holy Cheever Church record label, include Ben Hall, Liz Allbee, Joe Morris, and Gino Robair.
