Songs: three unknown beatscapes*

Recorded at Monarch Tavern, October 17, 2017.

Xambuca - three unknown beatscapes

This evening of ambient pop was conceived by Riparian Acoustics (Nick Storring's post-Ratio vehicle for show curation) and given logistical support by Burn Down the Capital and packed the Monarch Tavern with a fairly mixed crowd. Perhaps the friskiest of the night's sets, these beatscape vignettes from Chandra Shukla (who usually performs alongside video artist Geo Lynx but was solo on this night) hinted at connections to the headliner's electronic experiments. From what I can gather, Shukla and Hans-Joachim Roedelius were performing collaborative sets on most nights of this tour, but it looks as if the availability of the grand piano in this room shifted things around, giving us this solo excursion.

* Does anyone know the titles to these bits? Please leave a comment!
