finale at the auxiliary

051-AuxilliaryRichmond-3641On August 15 Colla Parte joined Vector Trio and New Ting Ting Loft at the Auxiliary in Richmond, VA for an evening of improvised music. The finale was a performance by The Lower Mid-Atlantic Improvisers’ Orchestra–the combined groups, playing a graphic score I composed for the occasion. Hear it here, on Bandcamp.

balancing on the pyramid

photo 2An annual Thanksgiving weekend tradition: Colla Parte plays a benefit concert for Pyramid Atlantic. We were there with the full quartet (Perry Conticchio, Rich O’Meara, and Kevin O’Meara–Kevin unfortunately not visible in the image). Our friends Vector Trio played on the same bill; we arranged things so that the end of our set overlapped with the beginning of their set. Here’s a video excerpt of the ad hoc septet at work.
