Songs: Did You Ever Think You'd Miss It? [composer: Karen Ng] + [first set improvisation]

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), September 20, 2017.

Pineapple - Did You Ever Think You'd Miss It?

Pineapple - [first set improvisation]

After journeying across multiple continents as a touring musician for big chunks of the past year, community hero Karen Ng is back in town a bit more steadily and taking on some new projects — including some long-deferred opportunities to present some work as a composer. This first outing (alongside Rob Grieve on guit and Alex Fournier on double bass and electronics) saw this piece as well as a graphic-score-in-progress from Ng, as well as a couple of Fournier's pieces plus a couple improvisations. Lots of texture explorations, digital delay and drones underlying the pieces, which augers well for future excursions.

[Pineapple will be filling in during Josh Cole's monthly slot next Wednesday (October 18th) at The Tranzac. And meanwhile, Karen Ng's monthly slot in the Southern Cross will see another new project on October 26th, with no fewer than four saxes (Ng, Jeff LaRochelle, Brodie West and Peter Lutek) backed by percussionist Evan Cartwright.]
