California art collective Cartoon Justice brings their sound and some of their video art to Providence, Rhode Island… !
Highly colorful sonic-landscape. by the collective ensemble Cartoon Justice and their guest(s) soundtrack for kinetic generative videos and for the listeners own internal mental imagery…
Cartoon Justice is a collective improvisation ensemble blending a diverse set of musical ideas into a fresh and unique sonic art. Their style has been called Shamanic Noise Jazz, Political Instrumental… SciFi Noir, punk harmolodic jazz.
An Organic mix of european electroacoustic (Mika studied with Valdemir Ussachevsky in University) and free improvisation with a healthy dose of rootsy indigenous folk elements.
Their recent CD collaboration with longtime Ornette Coleman Drummer G Calvin Weston exemplified their diverse sonic palette. As a reviewer of this CD sad: “Pontecorvo, Weston and Cartoon Justice sure put out a mighty hot jazz rock (as in fusion done up right!) that keeps my attention going.”….”what I would have hoped Sonny Sharrock woulda been up to had he lasted this long down the music line. Frantic and cluttered, yet with a clear musical vision that sure sounded good back in the seventies when you were young and upstarting, yet it sounds even better in the here and now giving us all a bright glimpse of musical hope!”
