Feverishly trying to keep up with springtime work volumes at the bike shop took precedence over creative endevers. That meant that planning for the fifth Sun Worhsip event suffered. So I was even more grateful for the performers who were able to rally with only two weeks notice. Eric Dhalman was able to enlist a friend on guitar and bass to accompany him on horns, whistles, and various light treats. Although Joshua Jefferson was not in the area to join in, Steve Norton and Angela Sawyer were up for a performance and brought their elaborate collection of bird calls, horns, electronics. They performed an extensive and dynamic set moving through various textures and intensities. Birdorgan was complete again with percussionist Mike Daley who incorporated his crutches in the first performance since he crashed his scooter. Lighting up their set was Greg Kowalski from Qfwfq Duo, projecting real time abstract images across the group and wall behind. I brought along the bicycle wheel, electronics, etc., for a performance of Offst Needle Radius that was somewhat eclipsed by bunq's implosion of various objects, crumpled paper, balancing sticks, toys, etc.
In all, the evening was another great night of free improv performance. September will bring Sun Worship VI, will be the first Sun Worship event to take place on a Saturday, and will no doubt be great. So write it on your calender, September 18th: Sun Worship VI!
