Recording: Steve Kado With...

Artist: Steve Kado With...

Song: 2003 (for electric guitars) [excerpt]

Recorded at The Great Hall, September 10, 2012.

Steve Kado With - 2003 [excerpt]

Full review to follow. Unlike the mixed ensemble I'd seen him present it with previously (or the all-keyboard version assembled for the recording), this presentation of Steve Kado's 2003 came tonight with eight guitars, one bass and two keybs — plus the always-present thumping drum-machine pulse under it all. This lineup makes sense, given the piece's genesis as a deployment of the minimalist methodology of Terry Riley's In C as applied to a single chord from a Wipers song.
