Core of the Coalman aka Jorge Boehringer
Core of the Coalman consists of continuity and discontinuity for viola, voice and circuits on the border between order and chaos. Sonically diverse and sometimes explosive in texture, Core of the Coalman emphasizes the physicality of sound and its psychological relationship with our perceptual and environmental mechanics.
As Jorge envisions his multi-faceted approach:
"A compound eye may consist of thousands of individual photoreception units.
The image perceived is a combination of inputs from the numerous ommatidia (individual "eye units"), which are located on a convex surface, thus point in slightly different directions. This results in a specific type of focus, in which multiple systems of polymathic pursuits are allowed to progress at their own rates, attaining, as such, a unified, rather than fractured, perceptive, though a perspective different from that enjoyed by our ancestors...human and otherwise."
While currently based in Prague, CZ, for the better part of the past decade Jorge was a vital part of the San Francisco Bay Area's fertile noise scene and counted among his collaborators members of
D Yellow Swans, Grouper, Marfa and Ne-Af, XBXRX, 16 Bitch Pile Up, Liz Albee, 7 Year Rabbit Cycle, Miba, and the Grey Daturas.
