100418, b/e party

Next week Bryan and Eleanor Eubanks will be packing up and relocating to Florida. Looks like a great pretext to throw a Fotofono party and get to play together again. So — Theres bakes some pita bread, ice tea and wine flow, and after the dinner party the studio gets filled up almost over capacity with a small crowd of friends, for the most part artists themselves. The first set has Bryan with Andrew Lafkas, Tucker Dulin and myself (as mpld).
Second set is the first time as a duo for Aki Onda and Margarida Garcia. Margarida plays her electric double bass while Aki instead of the compact cassette table has a minimal setup with one tube amp, a Line Six and a hand-held radio.
Byron Westbrook ends it all with a gorgeous Corridors set. Using  multiple speakers and video projections he builds up a multidimensional space in which the perception of time becomes supple, and the audience is transfixed.

set 1 – Tucker Dulin (trombone), Bryan Eubanks (electronics), Andrew Lafkas (double bass), mpld (light and processed sound  from slide projectors).

.

set 2 – Margarida Garcia (double bass), Aki Onda (electronics).

Special thanks to Byron Westbrook for bringing down his recording equipment and documenting the concert.

December 12, 2009. Three all-acoustic solo sets, arranged by Tucker Dulin.  One of the coziest, most intimate sessions ever as far as I can remember, which certainly comes across well from the quietly balanced gestures and tones of this post.

Play the recordings with the flash player below, or click on the links to download zipped ogg files and zipped mp3 files.


Tucker Dulin – solo trombone


Andrew Lafkas – solo double bass


Dave Gross – solo alto sax

Finally, an announcement – next to come is the last planned session for 2009 – Paul Devens will meet with Keiko Uenishi (o.blaat) and Richard Garet, plus the sound-video duo of Bruce Tovsky and Shimpei Takeda – hopefully we will also post a video recording. Highly recommended!
