Burning Star Core
Friday, April 10, 2009
These 4 artists came and played a set before their quasi-secret show at the Mopery and it was as if a party of experimental music was in progress. They all improvised 15 to 20 minutes sets, each as like as chalk and cheese from each other: Wasteland Jazz Unit went first and played horns aggressively, erratically, in a duet, to the point that we almost turned down the volume for fear of hearing loss (we didn't). Three Legged Race's set was electronically generated noise, with contact mics changing pitches and even some minimal melodies. And, C Spencer Yeh double-handedly played the violin, switching from harsh to strident to intermittent plucking and back again. We kinda felt guilty for being the only people there to see them, so make sure you listen to this!
