Ever since that night I saw Damo Suzuki at Wavelength I have been fascinated by people who can thoughtlessly create music on the fly without learning it first. I used to think improv was the realm of the twenty minute jazz solo and was much more interested in music that put up a tennis net before playing like the Beach Boys or the Ramones, with well defined beginnings middles and ends, and with the odd exception of my favorite things I never reallly warmed up to the improvisational end of the spectrum, I blame it on my bagpipe lessons and baseball games on oldies radio. And so it was many years wasted before I realized that improv can come from any place, that it’s really a matter of how I interact differently with forms than I do with structures, and after hundreds of shows I began to enjoy music that comes from wind chimes not just songs about them. It’s entirely possible that there won’t be a loop pedal in the house for this entire expidition, but that’s the nature of improvising, and if you’re as curious about what this show will sound like as I am then it’s because you want to see what music can do once it moves from structure to form. Wavelength has hunted down these particular artists for this particular show with that particular purpose in mind, and since this music and for that matter the confluence of events that transpire in this whole entire unfolding universe are pure improvisation, you’ll never hear this again, so I hope to see you there.
