rainy saturday, may 18th, with Jim and Hilmar having lunch outside the Nice train station, quick flashback to playing anthony coleman's score to á propo de nice by jean vigo ah, la knitting factory. last gig tonight with the 'alasnoaxis plays tyft' tour in genova, having survived the 17 hour 5 trains per day travel and totally killing it! and thanks to everyone who made it out to our shows and a big thanks to sound master oskar gudjonsson for letting play his mouthpieces!
may 21 - forgot to mention we saw pharoah sanders sitting in the venice airport and (in spite of starstruckness) said hi and blabbered something about how much I love his music. important to thank the cats that inspired you. and, finished this trip with a duo concert with zeno de rossi in brescia @ circolo quid and then we made some music at allesandro's (guitarist of guano padano) studio in nave (brescia), where he and elisanna were wonderful hosts, peaches with marscapone hello? not a bad way to end two weeks on the road. car, train, bus, two flights tomorrow back to brooklyn. figured out the coda to round midnight is basically the bridge. huh.
