A cozy art gallery, walls lined with a lifetime's worth of prints, was an excellent space for a night of listening. If I'd thought that the quietness of the previous time I saw this trio was striking, I was soon to discover that that was like an arena show compared to the spare stillness on display here. Playing totally acoustically, the trio's gestures included near-silent bass-bowing, e-bow whispers on an acoustic guitar, a ball clacking against rotating tiles and so on. As always with material this quiet, my mics don't do it justice at all, but hopefully they give some flavour of what was going on.
