This recording was captured from a performance on February 2nd, 2017 at Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn.
As the first show of 2017, there were a few new things I wanted to try in terms of a live setting. One of which was controlling my primary sound unit, a Line 6 Helix board, with a laptop. It occurred to me, at the same time, that I could also use the computer to record over the same USB cable, and hence the recording of that evening’s performance was born.
The scenes themselves are half composition, half improvisation. They are explorations of specific melodic themes, intervallic relationships and drones. I will likely revisit many of these themes again in the future, but for this I wanted the setting of the live space to let them breathe and find their own paths.
