Filmed January 25th 2013 at Le Cercle in Quebec City- a great introduction to my two newest PVC contrabass clarinets- also features a few shots of the drawing installation as it was in progress.
playing at Cryptatropa Bar in Olympia on Wednesday, and also the Waypost in Portland on Thursday- with my very dear friend Thollem McDonas, virtuoso pianist extraordinaire!
Hi there- here’s a FREE DOWNLOAD from the 2008 Low Clarinet Symposium held August 17 2008 in Portland, Oregon. Recorded by Nicholas Taplin, this is a quintet improvisation featuring Arrington de Dionyso on bass clarinet, Paul Hoskin on contrabass clarinet, Doug Haning on contralto clarinet, Jonathan Sielaff on bass clarinet and Mark Kaylor on drums.
please enjoy and share freely!
This is video footage of the entire set from Arrington’s concert on July 10 2012 at La Gaite Lyrique in Paris France, opening for The Ex with Getatchew Mekuryia. Arrington is playing his newly invented instrument, an adjustable PVC Contrabass Clarinet, and using a contact microphone taped to his throat to amplify his voice, throatsinging through two modified marantz cassette field recorders.
I am SUPER excited, ecstatic even, that I will be performing with my very dear old friend Malinda Ray Allen, not once but TWICE in New York City- on Monday at “La Sala” with US Girls and Diamond Terrifier, and Tuesday at the world reknowned ZEBULON (also with Diamond Terrifier and PAUL FLAHERTY!!)

Arrington de Dionyso and Thollem McDonas perform “Relentlessly Ecstatic pt. 2”, a seemingly chaotic yet intricate dance between Arrington’s mystical bass clarinet and Thollem’s murky and graceful piano playing. Pretty awesome, right?! The two of them will be playing shows across the states starting in the second week of May going through the end of the month! Check it out on our shows page!
