"Improvisational Dinner Music at Middle East Restaurant"

Pour fêter la première année d'existence du label et pour célébrer dignement Noël, Empty House Cooperative nous offre un concert improvisé dans un restaurant. De quoi déstabiliser un auditeur, mais également lui permettre de découvrir le jeu fascinant du groupe faisant du bruit ambiant un nouveau paramètre musical.

hinahgift001 - Empty House Cooperative "Improvisational Dinner Music at Middle East Restaurant"
"I refer to these recordings as "dinner music" because we performed for people while they were eating dinner at a restaurant. The environment is quite noticeable, with the noise of a busy night in the background... glasses, plates, silverware, a squeaky door, and people talking...
Everybody has their own aesthetic about what makes music interesting. For some, the crowd noise might sound ugly and distracting. I feel that we were part of the dinner scene that night, and not necessarily the reason why people were there. For that reason, I can accept the background noise on the recordings as a part of the experience. Some were listening and enjoying, and some didn't seem to notice.
Hopefully, there was a soothing subconscious message in the music that quietly worked its way through to the attentive, a bit like telling dark secrets to a dog. The dog doesn't seem to care, but the person sharing the secrets feels better.
The solo violin piece is a quiet eulogy, made at my apartment in Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts, on September 13th, 2001. I think I was imagining spirits rising when I played it."
- David Michael Curry
