MiLO at Sugar Maple: Samples

So once again, I’ve gone a couple months without a post.  Summer has a tendency to be full of so many going-ons that this site takes a back seat.  Oh well…

The performance at Sugar Maple was a great success and a good time was had by all.  Something a little newer for the group was to break up all the performers into a variety of trio subsets.  This is an evolution of some exercises we would play during rehearsals, where the entrance of a individual’s sound had to be accompanied by at least one other player, as he/she introduced something new to the overall sound.  Sometimes this would occur during the same subset’s exit from the group sound.  It became a way of organizing spontaneous coordination and adding a level of control to the overall density of our performances.  As everyone really enjoyed how it was influencing our rehearsals, we thought we’d take it a step further for the Sugar Maple performance.

Below is a video I captured before my iPhone ran out of storage space, and the remaining trios that we got audio for.  Unfortunately, we were unable to get anything else in it’s entirety.

Last item of note for that night, is a series of photographs taken by Paul M. Mitchell.  The photos can be seen here.
