CCMC - [second improvisation]

Full review to follow. More than just a birthday party, this event was planned as a tribute to Paul Dutton's "four decades of challenging the borders of literature and music". I mostly know him from his excursions in the latter realm, so it was interesting to hear the musical stuff freely mixed in among readings and reinterpretations from his poems and prose. (I did not know that Dutton had written a novel, but I left with a copy of Several Women Dancing.) Not that there's a hard boundary between those two fields, given that they're both based around the free expressiveness and infinite variability of the human voice.

The night ended with Dutton taking the stage as a member of his long-running improvising group CCMC. A brief set, but a fitting end to the night, capping off the tribute and the revisitations of the past with something brand new + invented in the moment. The celebration (and the creativity) of Paul Dutton don't end here.
