The gig with Lê Quan Ninh and Paul Dunmall was beautiful! We started with me, Dave Kane and Paul in a trio; Paul always sounds phenomenal, but this was only the second time I'd played with him—and the first time up-close, so it was real treat. After us, Chris Sharkey and Matthew Bourne treated us to a fantastic cello and acoustic guitar duo. To top it all, Ninh's set was absorbing: using a large bass drum as a sound surface, he made it sing, resonate and thunder with various sticks, gongs and found objects.
The second half started with Ninh and Matthew [on a sweet couple of Moogs] in a short duo, and then the rest of us chipped in. So good to be making that kind of music—many thanks to Fusebox for asking me down!
