Crystal Mooncone (Stephen Rush, Chris Peck and Jon Moniaci) is an electroacoustic band with a psychedelic sensibility, mixing playful interaction with committed listening and melding virtuosic musicianship with a taste for risk. In the ten years they've performed together they've developed a compositional process akin to Zen calligraphy - a blend of spontaneity and precision. The trio plumbs the unknown through this process, honing their collective musical decision-making while still delighting in the unexpected. The result is a rich, textured sound that blends old and new technologies, hi-fi and lo-fi, acoustic and electronic, analog and digital, familiar and unfamiliar, nostaligc and futuristic. Instruments such as piano and flute collide with hardware and plumbing supplies. Whimsical instruments like slide whistles and bike horns take on serious prominence. Crystal Mooncone conjures cinematic landscapes anchored by moments of exquisite sonic detail and musicality. Listening Beam Five is Crystal Mooncone's fifth album. Each member is an accomplished composer and artist in his own right. Rush is a Professor of Music at teh University of Michigan and has performed with Roscoe Mitchell, Pauline Oliveros, Elliott Sharp and more, including orchestral, chamber and solo works on over thirty albums. Peck has a longstanding engagement as a collaborator with contemporary dance and performance companies in Los Angeles, Brussels and elsewhere. He teaches music courses at the global Arts Studies Program athte University of California Merced. Moniaci also frequently collaborates with dance makers. In 2011 he received a New York Dance and Performance "Bessie" Award for his score for choreographer Beth Gill's Electric Midwife.
