C3 modern odd pop
C3 is a long-term collaboration between Seattle musicians Steve Ball and Paul O’Rear.
C3 is the next evolution of the Steve Ball Roadshow, a guitar-based ensemble that has been performing in and around the Seattle area since 1997. Before settling in Seattle, Steve Ball was a long time member of the League of Crafty Guitarists, founder of the Seattle Guitar Circle, and core member of international guitar ensembles Los Gauchos Alemanes and Electric Gauchos.
C3 music is characterized by odd, intricate and interlocking guitar parts complemented with stacked vocal harmonies. C3 performances feature a constantly morphing line-up of world-class guest musicians who collaborate to present improvised songscapes and multi-layered story-songs.
Arrangements, tempos, keys, and harmonies unfold dynamically and musically in the moment, and no song or show is ever performed exactly the same way twice.
C3 performs woven arrangements of both new and familiar songs by the group as well as carefully chosen covers by Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, Jane Siberry, Kate Bush, and Todd Rundgren.
C3 2013-2014 live collaborators: Jaxie Binder, Stephen Thompson, Nathan Grigg, Igor Abuladze.
