On Saturday July 7, audiences at Vancouver's Western Front Grand Luxe Theatre were treated to a lecture/presentation by Andrew Czink called "Torrent, Trickle - The Exploratory and the Performative in Doing Music." After a really first-rate explanation of his ideas about the relationship of his deep and long piano experience to improvisation and composition, he gave a stellar performance of this 30-minute work.

From John Oliver's web site:
I performed at two separate events, and attended a world premiere this past Saturday May 26. I performed on electric guitar, improvisations with artist/singer Carol Sawyer at the New Westminster New Media Gallery, as part of Carol's commentary on the TRACE exhibition. Then I walked down to the Drone Day event in front of the very cool Old Crow Coffee House where I improvised some ambient/drone music on computer, in duo with New West's own Wes Koop, who had a big analog rig. We performed under the huge fire escape (image at left)
