Blue Shift (Ousia)
& Michael Savrinns (own)
A Most Happy Sound
Lights by Magic Lantern
Curated by Chris Strouth
the show where it really started to click, everyone felt there was
something cool starting to happen with the first one but here we
got to experiment even more. First by teaming violinist Jane Anfinson,
and cellist Michael Savrinns (both from the group Own) with DJ/audio
manipulator Chris Satinger. Then A Most Happy Sound (which at the
time consisted of myself, and Mike Croswell, both playing digeredoo)
with the undancable break beats of DJ Drone.
If the first
show is where we got try the idea out, the second is where we could
really begin to explore the potential of it, see how far we could
push the envelope. What we discovered; if we stayed in night clubs
, not terribly far. No offense to First Avenue (it really is a great
club, but it is still ultimately a bar and there in the business
of selling drinks, not pushing musical boundaries, though they have
in the past done that too.) but it really wasn't where we belonged.
for Future Perfect to keep going it needed to do so on its own terms,
and without concessions.
