FFEAR (Forum for Electro-Acoustic Research) is an improvising quartet co-led by Chris Washburne and Ole Mathisen, and is Washburne’s most adventurous project to date.  FFEAR’s objective is to explore new sonic possibilities by adopting contemporary classical compositional techniques into an improvisational setting.  FFEAR delights in blending and blurring the divide between jazz and contemporary classical music and producing a truly original voice and approach to improvised music. The group includes Ole Mathisen on saxophones, Chris Washburne on trombone and didgeridoo, Michael Bates on bass and Tony Moreno on drums.
