About

7-time Grammy Award winner Paul Wertico, David Cain, and Larry Gray compose and orchestrate everything in real-time, melting acoustic and electronic sounds with new-tech and word-tech, in-sync with an inner muse that connects to the universe of possibilities, musically conversing to the point of sheer telepathy, and dreams realized as digital cinema.

Reviewers have described their sound as “Awesome! A total trip! Amazing! Original and visionary music from original and visionary musicians, Wertico Cain and Gray sound like old friends finishing each other’s sentences, and these are very, very interesting sentences."

A Story Goes With It - Wertico Cain & Gray

7-time Grammy Award winner Paul Wertico, David Cain, and Larry Gray compose and orchestrate everything in real-time, melting acoustic and electronic sounds with new-tech and word-tech, in-sync with an inner muse that connects to the universe of possibilities, musically conversing to the point of sheer telepathy, and dreams realized as digital cinema. Their debut CD, SOUND PORTRAITS, won an Independent Music Award for “Best Live Performance Album” in 2014.

Reviewers have described their sound as “Awesome! A total trip! Amazing! Original and visionary music from original and visionary musicians, Wertico Cain and Gray sound like old friends finishing each other’s sentences, and these are very, very interesting sentences.”

Wertico Cain & Gray’s 5th just released a new album: SHORT CUTS – 40 IMPROVISATIONS.

HERE IS THE STORY:
1) Streaming music = low royalties for musicians and bands.
2) Spotify. Anything over 31 seconds triggers a royalty payment. Same royalty as 999+ seconds.
3) Apple. Anything over 20 seconds triggers a royalty payment. Same royalty as 999+ seconds.
4) Paul Wertico. Let’s create a lot of short improvs over 31 seconds. It pays the same royalty as extended songs and compositions.
5) Paul Wertico, David Cain, and Larry Gray dig the concept and record Short Cuts - 40 Improvisations over 31 seconds. 21 improvisations under 60 seconds. The longest improvisation is 2:32.
6) The improvisation titles are poetry. Think Ferlinghetti.
7) The improvisations form a complete compositional thought.

In a true Renaissance spirit, the Wertico Cain & Gray concert at SPACE will feature creative and spontaneous music, 3D visuals (glasses provided) and a rare opportunity to witness a three-headed composer.
