"Victor Noriega has developed a distinct personal style that is both inventive and adventurous... his piano playing is crisp and articulate, and his compositions fuse Classical and Filipino folk elements with a jazz aesthetic. One moment his playing is reminiscent of the intricate contrapuntal lines in a Bach fugue, and the next the percussive dissonance of Bartok's music for piano... Listening to Noriega perform is...

Good fortune is on our sides as Gust, Jeff, Greg and myself are all available at the same time!  When we are all in the same city, we try to make this project happen; this is actually the first show that we will do together as a unit since we released the 2 TRIOS RECORD!  Great things are bound to happen :)  Joining us on the bill will be a chordless saxophone quartet led by Stuart MacDonald and Jacob Zimmerman.  Don't miss this great night of music!

PONTIUS PILOTS IS BACK!
Posted On : 2014 February 01

After years of being stuck at the gate, a favorite project of mine has resurfaced.  On February 7th at MERGE in Vancouver I'll be presenting the remount, a solo debut of sorts!  Pontius Pilots is a beat-driven, electronic-influenced jazz project combining live keyboards with pre-recorded samples and analog drum sounds.  [Originally] A collaboration between pianist and composer Victor Noriega and producer-musician *Robert Nelson (e.R.DoN), the duo marries an array of real-instrument samples and synthesized sounds with a modern jazz musician's approach to creation by improvisation.

*Robert Nelson has since retired from the group; Pontius Pilots is currently a solo project by Victor Noriega.  The spirit and approach of e.R.DoN remains a signature of the music.
