Andrew Pask & Jim McAuley

Played a wonderful show at The ResBox Series, curated and hosted by Hans Fjellestad, at the classy Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood.

Andrew Pask and Jim McAuley put in a cool first set culminating in a final bit of mayhem on a seven foot long 12 string instrument played by Jim with metal batons. A screening of Nightsoil followed, then my quartet with Motoko Honda, Emily Hay and Scrote. We performed Screen, an improv score by Fred Frith which involves each player cycling through an improvised figure in two measures of 5/4 and each player taking a solo turn. We followed with a game piece I originally wrote for Split Lip called Pass the Baton, which involves each player improvising either a long, slow, wide figure or short, fast, thin figure and passing it on to another player (or players) to ‘interpret.’ A pretty scored improvisation by Scrote titled Craving Beauty followed and we closed with a chaotic free improvisation. The night was capped off by composer Bruce Friedman (from whom I purchased a very kewl book called Notations 21, a collection of modern graphic music scores) and his cast of fine LA musicians interpreting a graphic score.
