Allison Cameron & Germaine Liu - [set 2, first piece] [excerpt]

Originally slated as a c_RL set, a summer cold meant this ended up as a duo between percussionist Germaine Liu and multi-instrumentalist Allison Cameron. Adding to the sense of something different than usual taking place, Cameron eschewed her usual variety of keyboards, mini-amps and other noisemakers and instead used the Southern Cross' venerable house acoustic guitar and piano. "The problem with the piano is that it just does notes," Cameron muttered after the first piece, but she did her best to subvert that. Perhaps the most intriguing moments came in a couple pieces where she doubled herself on guitar while Liu played recorder.
