Killick Erik Hinds, Dennis Palmer, Bob Stagner


The Shaking Ray Levis is an ongoing collaboration of musicians with a common interest in improvisation. The project was conceived and led by the Chattanooga-based team of Dennis J. Palmer and Bob Stagner. The latest incarnation of the group is a trio with Killick Erik Hinds of Athens, Georgia. They use storytelling, synthesizers, samplers, percussion, and Killick’s one-of-a-kind H’arpeggione to achieve their distinctive sound. They are the first American group to have recorded for Incus Records Read more on Last.fm
The Shaking Ray Levis is an ongoing collaboration of musicians with a common interest in improvisation. The project was conceived and led by the Chattanooga-based team of Dennis J. Palmer and Bob Stagner. The latest incarnation of the group is a trio with Killick Erik Hinds of Athens, Georgia.

They use storytelling, synthesizers, samplers, percussion, and Killick’s one-of-a-kind H’arpeggione to achieve their distinctive sound. They are the first American group to have recorded for Incus Records, the record label of British free improvisational guitarist Derek Bailey. Additionally, the members have performed and recorded with John Zorn, David Greenberger, Fred Frith, Frank Gratkowski, Min Tanaka, Amy Denio, Ken Vandermark, Peter Kowald, Susan Alcorn, Larry Ochs, Habib Koité, Chris Cutler, Susie Allen, and Derek Bailey, as well as with many other critically acclaimed artists. The Shaking Ray Levis have performed internationally on the BBC, at Quebec's International Festival de Musique Actuelle, Newfoundland's Sound Symposium, London's Company Week, and Denver's ReThink Conference. Dennis Palmer has the distinction of being invited to play at Company Week in 1988 and the final one in 1994.

Furthermore, their educational outreach program has been presented in many public schools and malls throughout the U.S. The group has been awarded grants by the British Arts Council, Meet the Composer, and several regional organizations. Incus released the Duo's first and second CD's, False Prophets or Dang Good Guessers in 1993 and Short in the U.K. in 1997 with drummer Roger Turner and keyboardist Steve Beresford.

Although they are on many compilations, their first and only vinyl release is a quintet with Borbetomagus, a release which features Palmer's artwork on a limited edition picture disc. Their 1997 CD Boss Witch features collaborations with J.D. Parran, Davey Williams, Frank Pahl, Mary Richards, and Steve Beresford. 2003, a year in which two wildly different and critically acclaimed discs were released, was a very productive year indeed for the SRL boys.

Mssrs. Palmer and Stagner can be heard on Shaking Ray Records' Live at Lamar's, a 1999 recording of a live performance with improv guru Derek Bailey. Also in 2003, Palmer & Stagner teamed up with NPR correspondent and Duplex Planet publisher David Greenberger, with a more than a little help from Kenny Palmer and Frank Pahl, on PelPel's Mayor of the Tennessee River. 2006 will see the release of the Shaking Ray’s first album as a trio with Killick, a joint Solponticello/Shaking Ray release.

Killick Erik Hinds of Athens, Georgia is a tireless advocate for improvised and the other kind of music. He plays quartertone electric guitar, Big Red harp guitar, and his devil cello: the H'arpeggione, an upright acoustic instrument with sympathetic strings. Killick focuses on the raw sound of his strings in all their microtonal glory; his style blends primitive folk, heavy metal, and sacred musics from around the world into a distinct voice. Killick has played with countless improvisers and performs regularly around the country, to the delight of millions.

He runs Solponticello Records, looks good in black (the new salmon), and is obsessed with old-school arcade games. He is the fellow who put out a solo version of Slayer's Reign In Blood.
