Recording: The Nick Storring Band

Artist: The Nick Storring Band

Song: Untitled*

Recorded at The Tranzac's Main Hall (Somewhere There Creative Music Festival – Show 1), February 26, 2016.

The Nick Storring Band - Untitled [excerpt]

Once again, the Somewhere There Festival filled up the Tranzac with a weekend jam-packed full of locally-based creative music. After an opening speech, the fest's first music was brought via this new delivery system for cellist Nick Storring's compositional and arranging talents. Surrounded by some frequent collaborators (including John Mark Sherlock on clavinet + pianet, Germaine Liu on percussion and Ilana Waniuk on violin), the music explored some zones of quiet drift and occasional clatter familiar in Storring's work. But Manticore's Zoë Alexis-Abrams served as the essential disruptive element here with her vocal interjections keeping the music from settling too easily into place.

* Nick has commented that this one is, as yet, untitled.
