Composer, amateur engineer, scientific tourist, and pack rat, P. Spadine spends the vast majority of his time guiding the Ashcan Orchestra through its glorification rites praising the known universe. By implementing a growing collection of homemade instruments, simple automata, human performers, and a combination of determinate and generative compositional tools, Ashcan strives to create small musical universes where simple rules flourish into complexity in an attempt to emulate and celebrate the laws that bind the physical world. He is incredibly grateful for the opportunities shared by each venue, from D.I.Y. basement to respectable NYC institution, that have generously allowed Ashcan to share its menagerie since 2007.
