Kronomorfic, whose latest release "Entangled" is a favorite pick for Jazz 88.3's late weeknight Progressive Night's hosts, performed music from that collection, their 2010 release "Micro Temporal Infundibula", and other original compositions, before a sparse but enthusiastic and engaged audience at San Diego City College's Saville Theater and a much larger live broadcast audience on Jazz Live San Diego, Tuesday, May 19, 2015. Co-founder's David Borgo, saxophone, and Paul Pellegrin, drums, also sat down with Jazz Live host Vince Outlaw for a recorded interview aired after the groups performance.

David Borgo and Paul Pellegrin of Kronomorfic Do The Jazz Live San Diego Interview

Co-founders of Kronomorfic David Borgo and Paul Pellegrin hiked up the Jazz 88.3 studios in the "L" building off Curran Plaza at San Diego City College before their performance to chat with Jazz Live San Diego host Vince Outlaw about "polymetric time", the musicians on 2014's "Entangled" and those performing at Jazz Live, Paul's search for rhythmic (and professional) meaning and finding it in the "clave" rhythms that propel Kronomorfic's music, David's work as a professor at UCSD, and more. The interview audio is also available in the Jazz 88 Speakeasy and through uncut video captured in studio and posted to the Jazz 88.3 YouTube Channel (SUBSCRIBE!)
I arrive around 5pm or so and start snapping a few shots of the stage setup, the lineup program for the show, the interview at the studio (thanks Michael!), and various shots during the show.
