Recording: Franche-Nolan/Ballyk

Artist: Franche-Nolan/Ballyk

Song: [excerpt]

Recorded at The Tranzac (Southern Cross Lounge), February 23, 2019.

Franche-Nolan/Ballyk - [excerpt]

This project's core duo of Noah Franche-Nolan (piano) and Mark Ballyk (drums/electronics) was augmented by Laura Swankey (voice/electronics) and Dan Pitt (guitar) for a set of push/pull improvisations, moving from florid clomping and saloon-y tinkling to abstract close-mic'd cymbal feedback rumbles. The latter end of the spectrum was pushed even further when the members of drone/folk-gospel explorers Joyful Joyful (who'd opened up the evening) joined the quartet on stage for en extended coda to the set.

[Noah Franche-Nolan will be playing new compositions with a trio including Hayden Farrar and Nick Fraser at the Tranzac on Sunday night (April 28th).]
