New Ting Ting Loft 2013-12-02

Here's a stream to our latest improv, from last week:

"Not Breaking the 43-Minute Barrier," improvisation by New Ting Ting Loft, 2013-12-02 (ca. 42:00). Tommy Birchett: styrofoam, electronics. Ben Scott: guitar, electronics. Jimmy Ghaphery: flute, alto sax. Tim Harding: guitar, keyboard. Sam Byrd: drums, toys, percussion.

It's been a while since the full quintet contingent has been able to assemble to play, so we went for it and cranked for almost (but not quite!) 43 minutes.  I have really been enjoying the incorporation of the electronic sounds of Tommy and Ben into the New Loft dynamic.  Having five voices makes for lots of choices in setting, configuration, dynamics, and grooves.  Like most if not all our improv pieces, this one has a wide range of dynamics, including many vewwy, vewwy quiet passages, and is probably best served LOUD.  Don't forget, you can download uncompressed files of this and many other improvs of ours at the Internet Archive.
