tough day tubing

The Boston based trio stopped by Yell Gallery in Fishtown, Philadelphia and performed a set of their music.

tough day tubing is:

Al Margolis was recently reviewed by Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes as "some sort of evil genius working with raw materials which are never adapted to a genre or a context, because they create one in that very moment. Those sources are radically altered up to an utterly unrecognizable state, anarchic manifestations moving in compact determination."

Steve Norton, a "Boston based Saxophonist" who "has been performing and recording for over 30 years, with a bunch of folks to whom he is deeply and forever in debt. His recent work has taken a turn toward more sound-based concerns and investigations into performance gestalt. His focus is on improvisation, which is filtered through a strongly compositional sensibility. "

And last but not least,

Walter Wright, "an improviser on electronics of his fabrication. An interdisciplinary artist, and community arts advocate. Educated as an architect, he has graduate degrees in engineering and interdisciplinary art. He is a co-founder of 119 Gallery in Lowell MA where he produces new music and performance events."

The performance was part of the "Fire Museum Presents" music series in Philadelphia, PA

The trio is:

Bonnie Kane, on saxophone, has always "sought the magic of the moment, bringing her Fresh Sound Guarantee to every performance. Her dedication to improvisation was influenced by an unusually early and continuous exposure to Sun Ra."

Flandrew Fleisenberg plays percussion on an assortment of everyday ephemera and modified drum parts that he has reduced and eroded through a process of playing and breaking.

and

Joo Won Park who "draws inspirations from listening Florida swamps, Philadelphia skyscrapers, his 2-year-old son’s play, and other soundscapes surrounding him. He performs live with toys, kitchenware, vegetables, umbrellas, and other non-musical objects by digitally processing their sounds."

This performance was part of a series by "Fire Museum Presents". It was recorded at Yell Gallery in Fishtown, Philadelphia.
