What started as an attempt to maintain a routine during the 2020 global pandemic has developed into a video series, where composer Carlos Cotallo Solares records one improvisation every week.
Improvisers Justin K. Comer (saxophones), Carlos Cotallo Solares (guitar/electronics), and Will Yager (double bass) formed Wombat in October 2017. Together they explore new sonic textures and instrumental techniques in concert halls, coffee shops, and backyards. Though the performances are never planned beforehand, the trio's music is influenced by their collective experience with contemporary art music, noise, jazz, metal, and drone. Recent appearances include Oh My Ears Festival (Phoenix, AZ), MOXsonic (Warrensburg, MO), the Maximum Ames festival (Ames, IA), Composers' Workshops at the University of Iowa, and the Feed Me Weird Things and iHearIC concert series.
