Table Pounding Records was founded by clarinetist, composer, bandleader and cultural visionary David Krakauer in 2010 with the release of the 10-piece supergroup Abraham Inc's debut album Tweet Tweet. At the heart of Table Pounding Records is a constant search for identity and a distinctive voice, and it is home to a collection of recordings that blur boundaries and genres.
In 2017, pianist, composer and producer Kathleen Tagg came on board to co-found Table Pounding Music to complement Table Records. It is the umbrella for their activities, residency activities, musical dialogue projects and composition. Through Table Pounding Music, Krakauer & Tagg produced a series of concerts to benefit the ACLU at Symphony Space in New York featuring luminaries such as Abraham Inc, Marc Ribot, musicians of the Silk Road Ensemble and others. All Table Pounding Music projects explore the idea of identity from multiple angles, in the knowledge that we are all connected, but that in each person’s individual quest to find their place in the world, we see our own quests reflected across cultural boundaries.
