Recording: Alexandra Spence

Artist: Alexandra Spence + Diane Roblin / Alexandra Spence + Paul Newman

Songs: [excerpts from two sets]

Recorded at Array Space (Audiopollination #42.2), May 22, 2016.

Alexandra Spence + Diane Roblin - [excerpt from first piece]

Alexandra Spence + Paul Newman - [second piece]

This Sydney-via-Vancouver sound artist and clarinet player has dropped in to Audiopollination before, but was the featured guest this time out. Not only did she sit in with Nilan Perera's large ensemble, she also played a pair of duets matched with local improvisers. Diane Roblin offered some rolling piano lines and subtle synthesizer accents while Paul Newman added some quiet sax warbles that mixed especially well with Spence's spare overtone playing, quietly filling the room as the muffled pops of informal long weekend fireworks shows filtered through from outside.
