Press Comments


…like Herb Alpert waking up in a spaceship… When he improvises, alternating between long, sonorous proclamations and agitated tonguing and smears, Cunningham sounds close to Don Cherry…

Wire 225

 

Convolution's noirer-than-noir trumpet, voice and effects thing is loaded with subtle menace. Cunningham and partner Silvia Mestres are on to something darkly magical.

Time Out New York

 

...deeply distorted guitar, breathy vocals, trumpet, synth. Sounds like: balloon animals mid-contortion, Latin Jazz, rainy island nights locked inside of a haunted house, and the hot & cold soundtrack to an ever-morphing poetry book.

CEC-Philadelpia newsletter

 

"Mark Cunningham uses the trumpet to caress the audience into a sonic landscape lush with heady atmospheres full of lusty intrigue. Seductively urges the listener to relax into a full body aural massage. Perfect music for mid summer's night dreams."

Lydia Lunch

 

"Sounds like Etant Donnes playing the exotic sounds of Martin Denny".

Yves Botz, Dust Breeders

 

"...his trumpet was exquisite, a tone that seemed to combine 70s electric Miles Davis with the soundtrack from Kubrick’s 2001, although what Cunningham actually did with that tone seemed to be entirely his own invention."

A Jazz Noise - blog 2015

 

" Mark’s trumpet achieves something akin to what Chet Baker might have done if he’d flipped out and gotten into the? French acid scene in ’68. Light, strangely wound tones that really don’t sound like anyone else I can name."

Byron Coley 2016
