Jeff Gauthier Maggie Parkins

Violinist Jeff Gauthier and cellist Maggie Parkins’ The Smudges: Song and Call is a collaborative experiment 15 years in the making and marks the second act for famed West Coast jazz/new music label Cryptogramophone (Nels Cline, Alex Cline, Mark Dresser, Bennie Maupin, Ben Goldberg, Jenny Scheinman and others). Featuring compositions by accordionist Guy Klucevsek, composer Tom Flaherty, and Gauthier, the album mixes in adventurous duo improvs to create a genre defying experience with electronically altered sounds. The Smudges is the duo of Maggie Parkins and Jeff Gauthier, that often includes members of their extended musical family. They perform original music that involves improvisation and electronics. They have performed with percussionist Alex Cline, and are planning future projects with guitarist Nels Cline, harpist Zeena Parkins and others.
