This was my first time, in my alter ego of Heraclitus Akimbo, taking my old farmer's accordion out in public. It was generally used in the same way I deploy my keyboards, as a sound source to loop and drone — but with the added bonus that I could then tear off my contact mics and stroll around a little while playing. Hopefully all of that didn't distract too much from Del Stephen's pitch-shifted poetics and percussive potpourri and Alex Fournier holding down the centre on double bass.
Michael Lynn captured this whole night in black and white, so you can view the full set over on youtube:
