Text and artist bios by Tripticks Tapes:

"Scar's the Limit documents a live set of electroacoustic improvisations featuring Forbes Graham (trumpet), Jim Hobbs (alto saxophone), Tatsuya Nakatani (percussion), and Victoria Shen (electronics). The show was organized within a Nakatani solo tour where each night he 'd assemble a supergroup of local improvisers. Some of the members here had collaborated in some capacity off and on over the years, but this show marks their first performance in this particular configuration. The results feel both reflective and unrestrained, full of dynamic intensity And dense textures, a looming sense of doom balanced by the exuberance of exploration and surprise. Each musician displays a deep commitment to their own personal sonic vernacular, while communing to produce a truly mesmeric and explosive collective experience.

Forbes Graham is a trumpet player, electronic musician, and composer living and working in Boston, Massachusetts. He is the founder of the Rock Flint Artists Retreat, and has appeared at numerous festivals including High Zero, Full Force, and Vision. 

Jim Hobbs was born and raised in northeastern Indiana at the convergence of three rivers. He is a recipient of the Doris Duke New Works Grant for composition from Chamber Music America. He received a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music where he majored in composition. It was there that he met bassist Timo Shanko and started the Fully Celebrated Orchestra (FCO), which has released 10+ recordings on various labels including Silkheart, Skycap and Innova. He has performed and recorded with Joe Morris, Luther Gray, Taylor Ho Bynum, Bill Lowe, The Jazz Composers Alliance , Forbes Graham, Fred Hopkins, Laurence Cook, Junko Simons, Josh Roseman, Curtis Hasselbring, Laura Andel and many others. 

Tatsuya Nakatani is an avant-garde percussionist, composer, and artist of sound. Active internationally since the 1990's, Nakatani has released over 80 recordings and tours extensively, performing over 150 concerts a year. His primary focus is his solo work and his large ensemble project, the Nakatani Gong Orchestra. Originally from Japan, he makes his home in the desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. Nakatani creates his distinctive music centered around his adapted bowed gong, supported by an array of drums, cymbals, and singing bowls. In consort with his hand carved Kobo Bows, it is an instrument he has spent decades developing. Nakatani approaches his orchestral project (NGO) as an arrangement of formations of vibrations, incorporated in shimmering layers of silence and texture. Within this contemporary work , one can still recognize the dramatic pacing, formal elegance and space (ma) felt in traditional Japanese music. 

Victoria Shen is an experimental music performer and sound artist from San Francisco. Though analog synthesizers are the backbone of Shen's music, while performing live, she plays self-made electronics, invented instruments, and even acoustic objects like a bull whip. Shen is a Her live show vacillates between moments of restraint. Her sets tend to be site-specific, in direct response to the physical and acoustic qualities of the space in which she performs. A tightrope walk between control and chance, the whiff of danger is never far during Shen's performances. Her sound is dynamic with a sensitivity to texture and structure throughout. "
