Paws and Reflect the Fivers

Another example of Ian's 'Dissonance to Consonance" with Dillian on guitar, Makiko on keyboard Sky on melodica, and Yuko on drums.

This one is dedicated to Brooklyn's legendary Jenna Gross, who is recovering from a finger injury. See her campaign here:

For Shoe 51

Yuko's guitar sounds provide inspiration for a stream of guitar noodle and drum tones.

Yuko, Dillian and Sky on guitars; Makiko on drums.

Tinsel Crystal

Sky and Makiko set up in the space playing keys... waiting for the rest of the trees to arrive. (recorded May 22, 2011)

Um Aum

This residue from January of last year popped out of the home computer mp3 player this week and made it all the way into permanent orbit on the web.

Another moment of the same January night in our space...

Dissonance to Consonance

Last night, we tried Ian's instruction to start with chaotic noise, all stop together, Brett start a melody, Lance come in with some dissonance at first and then more harmony, and then everyone come in similarly moving from dissonance to consonance to end on a pure tone.
