Recording: Ways

Artist: Ways

Songs: [two excerpts]

Recorded at The Tranzac's Main Hall (Somewhere There Creative Music Festival – Show 4), February 28, 2016.

Ways - [bowls + sax]

Ways - [excerpt]

Apparantly since I last saw Brodie West and Evan Cartwright performing as Ways, they'd been working on finding more restrained modes of expression. The fact that they'd stripped things back so far that Cartwright was at one point playing percussion with the tiniest taps of a pair of butter knives (!) helped make sense of their opening, where the pair played a percussion duet with mallets on glass kitchen bowls, sharing gently-ringing chimes back-and-forth before West started to add his saxophone.
