Artist: Ken Aldcroft/Michael Lynn/Karen Ng/Matt Miller
Songs: [two excerpts]
Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), June 8, 2016.
This night convened by guitarist Ken Aldcroft saw him joined by Michael Lynn (double bass), Karen Ng (alto sax + clarinet) and Matt Miller (laptop manipulations) — a crew and instrument mix well geared toward investigating musical textures more than melody-based jaunts. Aldcroft provided string skritchings and amp whirrings while Miller moved from quiz show buzzes to stereoscopic zworps to whummering bass rumbles, as he sampled and manipulated live sounds from the floor, helping to keep things cycling through musical interactions and sputtering electroacoustic outbursts over two sets.
