Piotr Lato & Patrick Talesfore, Jr.

Space Devil Rest in Peace is a modern instrumental duo co-led by bass clarinetist Piotr Lato and drummer Patrick Talesfore, Jr. The members of Space Devil RIP are dedicated to taking their instruments to extremes. No sound on the drum set is too primitive or abrasive. The bass clarinet’s full extended range is utilized through a series of pedals and processors with little regard for tradition. The result is a soundscape of rhythmic highs and lows ranging from lush tone poems to harsh noise cacophonies. Where labels are necessary, one may use the term “beautiful future music.”

The members of Space Devil Rest in Peace have worked with SFJAZZ, Evan Ziporyn's Ambient Orchestra, Cerce, Nishad George, Jeezy, and David Lechuga-Espadas among others.

Here’s what people have to say about Space Devil RIP’s upcoming project “Beautiful Future Music" -

“[Space Devil RIP] has an eerie ability to morph instantly back and forth between polite, gentle, and meek [...] into outrageous, playing passionate, committed blast beats under the threat of doom. The bass clarinet and noise are unique and artistic.”

Kenwood Dennard, Master Teacher and World-Renowned drummer for Jaco Pastorius, Stanley Jordan, Miles Davis, and others

“[...] An intersection of acute awareness and subconscious stream of expression, [...] layered upon music and truth. [...] Forget what you know. You won’t need it.”

Harry Skoler, Clarinetist and Artist for Buffet Group USA, AMT

“The music on this album is really all a part of a different and unique language that Patrick and Piotr speak so fluently. It’s not jazz, it’s not a drum showcase, and it’s also not a clarinet virtuoso album; it’s something in between that’ll leave anyone looking for those qualities speechless. I would really recommend Beautiful Future Music to genre fence-sitters, spiritual seekers, aspiring instrumentalists, and, more specifically, musicians that consider themselves intelligent.”

Nishad George, Composer, Producer, Guitarist, Century Media Recording Artist for The Offering, Body Count, and others
