crow with no mouth, performance (5/13)

proud to be performing along with two other amazing artists (nathan mclaughlin, joe houpert) as part of the crow with no mouth 2012 concert series. i’ll be performing an improvised set using a pair of modified reel to reel tape machines and acoustic instruments.

the performance will take place at 8pm on sunday, may 13th at studio z (275 east fourth street suite 200, st. paul, mn 55101)

crow with no mouth promotions is pleased to present three musicians working with reel-to-reel tape in an evening of composed and improvised music. 

The first concert in the cwnm 2012 concert series brings together musicians who have focused for several years on using tape as a source of unabashedly beautiful sound; at times highly abstract, at others narrative-driven, Andree, Prayer and McLaughlin extend the tradition of tape collage, concrète, and intelligent ambient music.
