Video of new piece from August 20th at Highwire Gallery

This is one of the three new pieces I premiered at the Highwire Gallery on August 20th, tentatively titled "Into Endlessly Unfolding Hallways."

Not the Wind, Not the Flag were in town from Toronto and played one of my favorite sets (of quite a few) that I've seen them play. Their set consisted of three pieces, an all-percussion groove piece first; the second, an edgy and disjunct sax/drum piece next, and this is the final guitar/drum blowout spirit-vamp jammer.

The opening set was from Traits, who delivered some really beautiful and lush textures, after which they played the nerdiest version of "The Immigrant Song" that I'm aware of.
