I’ll be undertaking a brief solo tour in a couple of weeks. I’ll also be playing a couple of shows with Joe Houpert (Loud & Sad).
I’ll be focusing here on live improvisation involving both the guitar and nonmusical elements, crafting a unique sound environment that is heavily dependent on the location itself. Inspired by the collections of my friend and collaborator Evan Lindorff-Ellery, and by recent spontaneous live performances, I’ll be collecting objects in each location to use as sound sources during my sets. These objects may come from immediate surroundings, from travel experiences (by bus and train) between venues, and other elements pertaining to the particular moment in which I find myself on a stage. They will be discarded after use for each set, and will dictate in large part what kind of work will be performed.
