All music spontaneously improvised in Gallery One of the Yerba Buena Center
for the Arts, San Francisco, before a shifting audience. Part One was
recorded from 2-5 PM, November 18th, 2003, and Part Two was recorded from
2-5 PM, November 9th, 2003. Extracts from each day are presented here
in the order in which they were performed.
The original five hours of recordings were pared to two on December 9th,
and those two hours were edited, layered and shaped into what's here on
March 7th, 2004 (with a few further edits sustained on April the 26th).
Mastered by Thomas Dimuzio, June 21st, 2004.
Respectfully acknowledging Anthony Braxton, Billy Cobham, Scott Asheton,
and Hiroyuki Nishigaki.
Lush, improvised ambient electronic soundscapes recorded over a couple of days. The end result is engaging and cohesive, though its hard to tell if that happened at the gig or if its the result of good post-processing or editing. Fans of any of these guys will not be disappointed.
