The digital audio release of Eleven Postures (SIGE: 2021) is an artefact of the performance of a visual score recorded at the Tribune Tower in Downtown Oakland, CA on January 17, 2021 culled from social inquiry investigative and public art installation designed "Burn the Temples/Break Up the Bells" created by self-styled Music Research Strategist Marshall Trammell, for the Off Lomas Residency (Albuquerque, NM). Installation participants created new codes as signs of practical support for fugitives in their context using wood and branding irons derived from the shapes of the Underground Railroad quilt block codes, or patterns. The recording consists of eleven sound-events investigations as "postures" revisted in the two, culminating composite improvisations.
Marshall Trammell began a relationship with SIGE Records through the electroacoustic duo Black Spirituals with Zachary James Watkins to create the LP "Of Deconstruction," the tape "Black Treatment," and the double LP "Black Axes/Black Axis." Continuing with SIGE, Trammell has contributed to "Untitleable" with William Fowler Collins, "Experimental Love I & II" with Aaron Turner, and "Duo Damage, Vol 1, Live in Portland." with Tashi Dorji.
