Bach + Byrnes: Discussion 1


Believe the hype: the egg sandwich at Euro Pane is delicious.

Ted and I met for lunch at Euro Pane in Pasadena on February 28, 2012. (The actual location was the third of the sites I charted on Street View.)


Ted Byrnes

We discussed our recent moves (Eagle Rock to Pasadena for Ted, Long Beach to Mar Vista for me), percussion, and ideas about improvisation and approach.

An edited transcript will follow. In the meantime, a couple of themes have developed:

* Density

* Trace/Stencil (a visual resource guides the improvisation, then is removed/erased, leaving the resulting sound events to stand on their own)

* Studio ambience
