Love Letter Excerpt

If you’re reading this, maybe you’ve been to a Signal Problems performance recently. If so, you’re probably aware that we’ve been working out some new ways of performing together since recording the Signal Problems CD in 2013. If you haven’t seen us recently, you probably have no idea what that’s all about because I haven’t posted any recordings or videos in a long time.

Here’s a little peek into part of a recent performance I particularly enjoyed. This is part of a 20-30 minute long suite called Love Letter that has increasingly involved some quasi-theatre over the last few years. In it’s current incarnation, each performance muses on a particular theme or suggestion that I give the band in secret. This segment starts about 5-7 minutes into a performance at the Kensington Improvisers Collective.

If you want to hear more, invite us play in your living room. Seriously.
