Collage Project (Aidan Plank- bass, Dan Bruce- electric guitar, Dan Lippel- guitar, and guests Nathan Douds- drums, Noa Even- saxophone, and Chris Anderson- trombone) was born out of collaborations from the late 1990s and early 2000s in Cleveland, Ohio. Aidan Plank, Dan Bruce, and Dan Lippel gravitated towards each other musically through a shared conviction that free improvising need not be restricted by vocabulary and written material in improvised music need not be confined to conventional forms or stylistic boundaries. Over the last several years, the three have reunited to bring together their diverse sets of experiences in contemporary classical music, jazz, and other stylistic contexts. Off Brand is a recording defined by the unique musical space shaped by these diverse perspectives. Three guests, trombonist Chris Anderson, saxophonist Noa Even, and drummer Nathan Douds, join the trio for this project, bringing their own unique sensibilities.
