Artist: Queen Victrola

Songs: [two improvisations]

Recorded at Array Space (Somewhere There's Second Sunday Series), April 10, 2016.

Queen Victrola - [first piece]

Queen Victrola - [excerpt from third piece]

This quite wonderfully-named duo saw cellist cheryl o working with multi-instrumental wiz Michelangelo Iaffaldano, who played piano, guitar, clarinet, harp and accordion. Although Iaffaldano was often playing two of those instruments at a time, the music mostly involved around the interchange of spare, calming textures. On the second piece here, Iaffaldano set his violin on top of the piano and made little bowing swipes on the open strings while picking out piano notes.
