Sharif Sehnaoui - [excerpt]

Full review to follow. Nick Storring put this night together to exchange some culture with Beirut-based Sehnaoui, who was passing through town on his first Canadian tour. The night saw a range of sounds, from the extended techniques of Storring's own improv-cello duo The Knot to the John Cage standup routine of Andrew Zukerman's Fleshtone Aura. Sehnaoui's set, meanwhile, could best be described as "solo percussion for acoustic guitar", with the rods stuck in the strings creating some bell-like overtones when struck.

* I'm not sure if the longer piece that was played here had a title or not. Please leave a comment if you know!
