PAOLO VALLADOID & GARY ROUZER -  ***SOLD OUT***

DIRECTIONS FOR VIOLA AND CELLO

(confront collectors series ccs 41)

 

These tracks were recording in a large tunnel and its surroundings that is part of a bike path and nature trail in Alexandria, Virginia. Our viola and cello were joined by joggers, birds, traffic, flowing water, a cell phone, insects, and bicycles to create the music. We played for an hour, until it got dark and we could stand the biting bugs no longer. No further editing, processing, or post production was done other than fade in and fade out. 

Recording on 30 July 2011
