Lifeblood is Peter Evans' return to the solo album after a 5 year break. In the interim, there have been countless tours and concerts, as well as Evans' artist residencies at both Issue Project Room (2014) and Roulette Intermedium (2015/16), to both of which solo music was a central component.
Lifeblood is comprised mainly of two very different live performances. The title piece is from a small club in Cleveland (April 2016), and chronologically sits nearly last in the collection. "Prophets" is another full length piece, recorded as the opening concert of Evans' time at Roulette in fall 2015, after one week of practicing in the space with the PA. The short pieces, which also exist on film, are vignettes meant to tell a brief story with a more limited range of textures. "Pathways (for Rajna Swaminathan)" was recorded at the last minute and focuses entirely on one rhythmic texture that can be found for brief moments in the longer pieces. In general, there are many such cross-connections of material spread out over all the pieces, which were performed over a 6 month period.

Genesis represents the culmination of 2 years composing, performing and refining a concert's worth of music. Evans wrote the first draft of music for his 2014 Issue Project Room Residency, and the band toured the material in Europe in fall of 2014 and fall of 2015. The '15 tour was recorded and pieced together to make "Genesis", a record that documents a version of the complete set the band played every night. An extra piece, the cinematic "Patient Zero" is added to the record, to show the increasingly orchestral approach the band is moving in, with the (for the first time) additional electronics added by Jim Black and Ron Stabinsky.
The Quintet has evolved over it's 5 years in existence into a one-of-a-kind ensemble: equal parts five-piece chamber group, face-melting paroxysm, electro-acoustic shapeshifter and nuanced improvisational collective. The band's commitment and rapport have made their idiosyncratic integration of improvisation, live electronics, groove, complex notation, melody and noise nearly seamless, with each composition used as a gateway into ever increasing levels of intensity, beauty and power. The long awaited follow up to Destination: Void (2014), Genesis pushes against every commonly perceived limit of a band with such an instrumentation.
The Peter Evans Quintet's long-awaited second album.
Four monumental new compositions commissioned by the Roulette/Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Grant and recorded at the state-of-the-art Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in Troy, New York.
The album is named after a novel by Frank Herbert concerning a mission into space to create an artificial consciousness, a mission which is designed to use the frustrations, failures and imminent destruction of the crew to propel them to new levels of creativity. Destination: Void is an epic, cinematic synthesis of inimitable personalities, sci-fi, intricate notation, dense improvisation and creative sound design.

The eponymous debut recording from the quartet Rocket Science, recorded live at the Vortex in London. Rocket Science brings together four virtuosic instrumentalists: Evan Parker, Craig Taborn, Sam Pluta and Peter Evans. Together they perform an hour of intricate, dynamic and unusually beautiful improvised electro-acoustic chamber music. Each member of the group is widely recognized as having pushed the expressive boundaries of his instrument, and together they chart new paths of both refinement and sonic power for improvised music. Painstakingly mixed and mastered by Sam Pluta to bring out the detail and nuance of the music.
