Nilan Perera & Mira Martin-Gray - [excerpt from first piece]

A savvy pairing at this Octopus-curated evening at The Tranzac saw prepared guitarist Nilan Perera and no-input feedback mixist Mira Martin-Grey joining forces. A top talent at subtle looping on his Boomerang, Perera's bow-drones and plucks fit right in with Martin-Grey's noise swells. Her drone-tones and strong sense of pitch allowed the feedback sounds to blend in quite satisfactorily with the e-bow tincan rattles and other delicate chime-sounds — the dual output often sounding like one signal buzzing with sympathetic interference.

[Coming up on Wednesday (February 19th), Octopus will be presenting two different trios, each with Allison Cameron — the first set will see her being joined by Mira Martin-Gray and Mark Zurawinski while Germaine Liu and Laura Swankey will be featured in the second.]
