Music for 32 Goats – Antony DiGennaro & Tommy Monaghan

December 26, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Antony DiGennaro & Tommy Monaghan

(The Fear for the Dust Duo) is the current musical endeavor of east coast percussionist/composer Thomas Monaghan (Frankpipe, A Probe Called Gnomes) and west coast multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/composer Antony DiGennaro (Fear for the Dust, Tears of the Moosechaser, Whale). The two began performing together in the avant-jazz trio A Probe Called Gnomes in 2006 and have since recorded various albums and performed with renowned musicians on both coasts. Together again as a duo, Thomas and Antony will be creating a sound that has been labeled by critics and listeners as “post-apocalyptic folk” and “avant-garde doom country.” Performances range from quiet, intimate and acoustic to visceral expressions of the American wasteland.

Connecticut based drummer and music educator Tommy Monaghan studied privately for ten years with Gary Chaffee, who revolutionized and set the standard for drumset technique and education.  Tommy also studied with drummers Mike Mangini and Steve Houghton.  Having earned his BM in jazz drumming from the New England Conservatory, he worked with Billie Hart, Bob Moses and Cecil McBee.  Tommy has played with some of the top names in the creative, improvised music scene such as, Joe Fonda, Kunle Mwanga, Frank Carlberg, Michael Musillami, Noah Kaplan, Mary Hallvorsen, Allen Chase, and Jorge Roeder, as well as klezmer musicians Hankus Netsky, Mike Winograd, and Dan Blacksberg and flamenco guitar virtuoso Grisha Goryachev.  His original projects include work with A Probe Called Gnomes with LA based composer Antony DiGennaro and Frankpipe with Sean Frenette. Currently he is working on Antony’s album, “And the Madness that Followed”. He also wrote the screenplay and film score for “The Auspix”, which was featured at both the Kent Film Festival and the Hartford Film Festival.
