Magma Festival in CityArts

Nate Watters wrote a blurb and posted a dozen fabulous photographs in CityArts about Hollow Earth Radio’s Magma Festival.

Here’s an excerpt:
“Byron Au Yong (erhu), Paul Rucker (cello) and Tari Nelson-Zagar (violin) stepped outside the string-tied box to make some unique sounds with their instruments, at times bordering on percussion.”
Curated by Steve Peters, co-founder of  Nonsequitur, the event included four sets of improvising trios: trumpets, clarinets, strings and percussion. He called it 4 x 3.

I was lucky to be part of the string trio. It was my first-time playing music with cellist Paul Rucker and a lovely opportunity to continue working with violinist Tari Nelson-Zagar.

Here’s a photo of our set...
