Playing in duo since 2000, their recent Mulhouse Festival concert was introduced with “It is so beautiful that one cannot speak about it.” Nevertheless, Dana H. Geary, a paleobiologist at their Madison show wrote “In the first piece I heard a tropical jungle. Then it went back to the carboniferous, with giant insects and dark forests. And then it was a beautiful rendition of the Cambrian explosion”. Improvisations for saxophone and drums/electronics – “abstract, even subliminal” – One Final Note. http://www.johnbutcher.org.uk http://www.gerryhemingway.com
