Artist: Terms Of Venery
Song: [first section]
Recorded at Dundas Video (Track Could Bend #14), May 3, 2016.Terms Of Venery - [first section]
Mike Smith (known for his work in the Muskox/Mike Smith Co./Aurochs continuum as well as a busy sideman) came solo to this set. It ended up being an "experiment" in the most literal sense, as some new gear getting a first on-stage airing ended up not acting as expected. After this section (which worked quite well soundtracking Escape From L.A., which was playing on the big screen beside the stage), things shifted a bit into more solo Transcombobulation territory, but it all held together quite pleasingly. There are some gigs where it might matter more if things don't "work" as intended but this wasn't one of them — I'm not sure what sounds Smith was expecting to play, but these ones were quite satisfying.
[Track Could Bend #15 will be at Dundas Video on Tuesday, June 7th. Full announcement coming in a couple days, but you should start getting excited now.]
