1 of 2 sets of improvisation from our long-run Night of the Stickmen project. This has been a field of experimentation at every corner our musical path takes. Often in collaboration with wide variety of musicians, it reveals hidden desires we all have. Sometimes it emerges as floor-spread piles of cymbals, thick air of electronic drone, broken handmade acoustic instruments and the list goes on.
This time, its focus seems to be on real-time decomposition/composition of rhythmic structure.
The 1st set in collaboration with Japanese experimental rock trio Kukangendai whose very unique approach to rhythm and structure helped us push the concept beyond.
Recorded Live at Total Refreshment Centre. December 2017.
