all three of us agree that it was a watershed. first time in live performance that we've played with the freedom and naivete of the first house recording or the "warehouse session." i feel like i'm making strides on CBG/mallet guitar, without striving to emulate frith/rowe/whomever. the last few moments of the last set were an epiphany on a par with the first time i ever played a shuffle in my parents' basement and made it swing like b.b. -- e.g., "how the fuck am i doing this?" or "is that really me doing this?" thank you, mr. horn. plus my sweetie told me that our process has given her ideas to use in her work. it's a bonusburger.
