Here are some short clips from our set last Friday at Beats and Bohos, for their yearly art-walk.  So much to discuss here about the evening and the set, but for now:  Thanks to Woody Frank for joining us for the second half of the set -- starting at clip D above -- and thanks to everybody for coming out and listening and hope you enjoy these exerpts!  (there are still some parts from the end of the evening that I'd like to grab a clip or two from ... hopefully soon)

Here are the roughly-assembled movements from last night's jam with Marc Cantlin (guitar), 5-track (guitar, bass-in-4th-movement), and Me (bass, guitar-in-4th-movement).  UPDATE: material from this session is now a Cosmic Primitive album-release, so I'm removing the raw recordings ... here's a link to the released-album from the same material

Six Sided Cube March

1st Movement (18 megs)
Video Clip A (190 megs)
Video Clip B (204 megs)
Video Clip C (293 megs)
Video Clip E (291 megs)

On Weds, March 11th, Sheridan (drums), Five (guitar) and I (bass) got together for another session.  I had enjoyed watching Five's guerilla video from the previous one, so this time I brought out my SLR and my multi-input setup so we could place a few close-mics and rebalance the sound a bit in post.  Here's the recording of the first and possibly most-coherent overall movement...? (where I hadn't started the video-capture yet), AND a series of short video clips from the later 2 movements, during which there were also plenty of high-points.

Six Sided Quiet

Video Clip (506 megs)
2nd Movement (37 megs)
3rd Movement (20 megs)

Here's a panoramic from our super-restrained-volume session last week (Five's neighbor -- *across* the street -- apparently just sits around next to his front window waiting for something rhythmic to tempt him with the devil's gyrations, at which point, he telephones directly to the landlord to preserve his purity.)

On listening back, my first take was that the attempt to get by at such a low volume had resulted in a sound that was too unbalanced to bother posting anything.  But Five had filmed the first movement, and so I decided to take the last 10 minutes of it and add the audio from the Edirol.  The bass is a bit buried and you can't see Sheridan perhaps at all, but I think it's still a nice taste of the evening's good musical vibes.

UPDATE (2/26): just added 5's mixes of the second and third movements!

Here are the recordings of Six Sided Cube's (5-Track on Guitar, Sheridan Riley on Drums, and Me Woods on Bass) first public performance at Pioneer Square's 88 Keys Dueling Piano Bar, opening up for Protycal Octycal (another all-improv group also hailing from deep in Chai Territory).

Oil Bubbles

Bubble 1 (21 megs)
Bubble 2 (14 megs)

... a couple of clips from the first of what I hope will be many 3-piece free-groove sessions with Sheridan Riley (drums) and 5-Track (guitar).  I'm playing the wave bass through 5's ampeg.  The first clip is edited a bit, but the second is all "as-was".
