All Ears 2010 (3)
The third evening at All Ears brought a new series of good concerts.
First ones out were Kristin Andersen (tp), Anna Zaradny (sax) and Inga Margrete Aas (bass), with some relaxing impro, and then Cunt Rash blew it all, by delivering a perfect 10 minutes long set of pure blow out powernoise. You better watch out if you meet Daniel Meyer Grønvold (guitar) and Dag Erik Knedal Andersen (drums).
Anla Courtis came all the way from Argentina, and he insisted that it was summer outside! That guy must have a pretty wild imagination, and he proved it too, by using what he found lying around to make music. The instruments were clothes hangers, clothes lines and beer cans, and of course, drinking beer and drying clothes are summer activities!
C. Spencer Yeh (vocal, violin and microphone stands) and Okkyung Lee (cello) delivered a great set too, and the evening ended with Paul Lytton (dr), Johannes Bauer (tb) and Jon Rune Strøm (b). Some free jazz at the end was just perfect (for me, at least).
If you check Maja Ratkje´s Twitter, you will see she might be planning a record with two of the people mentioned in this blog post, Okkyung Lee and Kristin Andersen.
And now they say it was NO EARPLUGS in the All Ears urinal.
