TONTINE ENSEMBLE   |  http://tontineensemble.com/

Tontine Ensemble was founded in the spring of 2014 with the mission to perform improvisational and contemporary chamber works, as well as champion the compositions of Milwaukee composers. Its four current members first played together for a Blank Radio recording session and immediately began rehearsing regularly. Allen Russell, Molly Lieberman, Pat Reinholz, and Barry Paul Clark are all classically trained musicians who teach and regularly perform in a variety of styles around the Milwaukee area and beyond.

Tontine Ensemble has appeared as guest artists at Mike Neumeyer and Friends, Danceworks, Inc. (Paleontology of a Woman – 2014, Footsteps, Shadows & Whispers – 2015), Milwaukee Follies, Formations Series for New and Improvised Music, Alverno Presents (Prince Uncovered – 2015) and The Pre-Maturely Air Conditioned Arts Collective.

The ensemble has shared the stage with JOBS, Netmoiré, Lovely Socialite Mrs. Thomas W. Phipps, Geodes, Trench, Jonah Parzen-Johnson, and Jamison Williams.


CYRUS PIREH
Cyrus was born in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, USA on March 22, 1981. Cyrus studied violin, electric guitar, saxophone, and percussion as well as composition, music theory, electroacoustic music, and electrical theory. Cyrus holds bachelor’s and graduate degrees in Music Composition from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. As a composer, Cyrus’ works involve sign manipulation with the purpose of keeping the interpertive field open. As a performer, Cyrus is interested in the limits of the body and the self: always pushing towards a physical transcendence but working to situate the transcendence in the quotidian in order to live an every-day-life-transcendence. As an anarchist, Cyrus actively works to dismantle hierarchy and to heal the damages done by industry’s division of people into performers and audience; producers and consumers. In music, it is not possible to obstruct on sound with another. All sounds combine to create one harmony. Humans in harmony liberate each other.

Cyrus has a LP release!  See the press release below!
