"Seven"

Empty House Cooperative "Seven" is a document of one of the core trio's many gatherings. The titles are a play on words, mixing imagistic language to rhyme with the numbers, with "Seven" being both, as the number 7 is my secret soothing obsessive-compulsive fixation number.
We've developed our unspoken "just do it and enjoy it" musical language over the 20 years since we began as Sunday jam sessions in 1996.
I had a vision to invite musicians that I trusted or had a good vibe about to explore improvisation with minimal guidelines in a loose collective with an ebb and flow of both sound and membership. Approximately 30 people have been involved over the years. Regulars have included musicians Craig Colorusso and Thalia Zedek, some old friends from the band Molasses & others of their Montreal scene, and social justice activist Brian Corr, whom I met in Jumbo, a Boston rock scene circus music band.
From EHC's inception, the heavy foundation and floral scrabbles of Jonah Sacks' cello, the structure and deconstruction of Chris Brokaw's guitar, and DMC's viola, loops, howling & singing feedback, electro-acoustic noise & obsession with effects pedals have been the heart of Empty House Cooperative.
Thanks to hinah for their support at the beginning and now these many years later. All along the way, EHC concerts and home sessions have been recorded & passed out to friends in brown paper lunch bags.
The full archive will someday see the light of day.
