Audiopollination 64.1

Looking forward to this upcoming set with Mira Martin-Gray and visiting musician Paolo Gàiba Riva. Details follow:


Audiopollination #64.1

Sun., Oct. 7, 8-10pm

Array Space
155 Walnut Ave., Toronto


Visiting Italian musicians Paolo Gaiba Riva and Francesco Zedde are playing 3 sets with Toronto locals and the final set as a noise duo.

Set 1: Paolo Gàiba Riva / Mira Martin-Gray / William Davison
Set 2: Francesco Zedde / James Beardmore (electronics) / David Jones
Set 3: Paolo Gàiba Riva / Francesco Zedde / Kayla Milmine (sax) / Brian Abbot (guitar) / MJ Wright (percussion)
Set 4: Paolo Gàiba Riva and Francesco Zedde
A combo made up of two mentally deviated Italians. Francesco Zedde (aka Tonto and Tacet Tacet Tacet) and Paolo Gàiba Riva (aka PGR). Their sound combine both the digital big, heavy and sometimes uncontrollable sound of a home made circuit bended no input device and the dynamic and rawer one of contact mic-ing his own arse and other more or less clear places.

cONVENIENCE Davison duo

Back in June of this year, I made a collaborative audio/video recording (via Skype) with my old pal tENTATIVELY a. cONVENIENCE. This was part of a series of collaborations tENT has been doing with friends, either in-person or via internet. Even though tENT and I have known each other for decades, this was the first time we collaborated artistically! Yay! We were both quite pleased with the results. Yesterday, tENT posted the video to his Youtube channel and Have a look and a listen:

...or, if you prefer, -

We got good quality audio recordings of this jam, so I am toying with the idea of mixing/mastering it and releasing it in some form. I'll keep you posted.

Be sure to check out tENT's other duo recordings...and, while you're at it, everything else on his Youtube channel -
