fotofono


3 x 2 and 2 x 3

Once again, time has run awfully short on me, so this post will have to be a little masterpiece of conciseness. Two Fotofono events are joined here, twelve artists in total out of which four were visiting from various parts of Europe. Except for the duo Fraufraulein, which has been around for some time, the other encounters were first-off, or at least pretty new combos.

February 27 recorded by Richard Kamerman, March 22 recorded by Byron Westbrook. All mastered by Gill Arno. Thanks to Richard, Byron, and everyone else who played, attended the performances, made pizza, brought wine, shot photos and in any way took part in the events. Additional thanks to Ben Owen for the photo just above. Finally, a special praise to those who during the March event made a donation to the Japan Tsunami Relief Fund (via Keiko Uenishi and Japan Society).
