Recorded at The Music Gallery (X Avant XI – Night 2), October 14, 2016.Merganzer - unknown
Opening in the round for Pauline Oliveros' surround-sound improvised explorations, Mike Posen had the benefit of an audience that was out for some Deep Listening. Surrounded by the audience on all sides, she obliged with an instrumental set that, instead of drawing from her popcraft skills, explored textures and swooning musical drifts. (That said, it wasn't all complicated Advanced Listening as there was one section that had a Dark Side of The Moon vibe to it.) Segueing seamlessly between different ideas that would be looped and stretched out, this showed a keenly-organized musical mind at work.
