Artist: Michael Lynn/Neil Wiernik/Lara Solnicki

Song: [excerpt from an improvisation]

Recorded at Array Space ("Audiopollination 32.2"), July 14, 2015.

Michael Lynn/Neil Wiernik/Lara Solnicki - [excerpt from an improvisation]

This was the first night in this year's series of Audiopollination's "self-curation" project, where musicians are welcomed to sign up and improvise in a trio for a short set with... well, whoever else signs up. The format encourages wacky and counter-intuitive combinations, and a chance for musicians to experiment in directions they might not have otherwise explored. The series continues monthly until December.

The night's opening set saw Lara Solnicki (improvised vocals + prepared text) being backed by Michael Lynn (double bass) and Neil Wiernik (sonic manipulations via ipad), with the latter two following Solnicki's vocal cadences before she joined them in some more abstract excursions.

[As always, you can hear full recordings from the night over at Audiopollination's bandcamp. The self-curation project continues at Array on Tuesday, August 11th, and Audiopollination also has a couple other gigs coming up: this Thursday (July 30th) at The Tranzac, as well as on Sunday, August 30th, with Montréal visitors Geraldine Eguiluz and Stéphane Diamantakiou.]
