In 2016, Tom Rainey and I went on on a second extended duo tour – this time, all along the West Coast of the United States. As a duo, we had been playing improvised music up until then. For this tour we wanted to change the concept and also include composition. It was clear to us that we didn’t want to read music on stage, so we rehearsed and memorized the tunes. In our performances, we weave in and out of these pieces in whatever way we feel like – the composed material is triggered by small musical cues either of us can play at any given moment. Flutter and Shutter were written by both of us and Chant II is a composition of mine.
