Nublu Orchestra

The question is simple, but the answer is an enigma. “What is Nublu?” If you can extract a response out of anyone who has anything to do with the club and label on Avenue C, it’ll be a vague one. Nublu is a force that exists seemingly without definition. One night Forro in the Dark is banging out hard-charging Brazilian folk music, and two nights later I Led Three Lives is entrancing the crowd with near-psychedelic tech-jazz. The tie that binds it all together is intangible and unnamable. If there is any promise of an answer, though, the Nublu Orchestra Conducted by Butch Morris holds the key to its unlocking.

The Nublu Orchestra is assembled from the multifaceted range of musicians that call Nublu home. Band-members from Brazilian Girls, Wax Poetic, Kudu, Forro in the Dark, I Led Three Lives, and Love Trio and regular Nublu guests Graham Haynes and Eddie Henderson all sit under the baton of Butch Morris, the inventor of Conduction®.
Conduction is Morris’ vocabulary of ideographic signs and gestures activated to modify or construct a real-time musical arrangement or composition. An outstretched hand with an upward facing palm is a command to sustain. Fast, forward strikes of the baton are directives to make staccato sounds. In total there are thirty-one signals in his conductive language, and each one can be used to instigate or manipulate musicians’ harmonies, melodies, rhythms, articulations, phrasings or forms that make up the spontaneous compositions.
