Asheville Butoh Festival 2013

I was in Asheville, North Carolina, last week, visiting my friends David Linton and Claire Barratt, and was invited to join in an improvisational piece to be shown at intermission at the BeBe Theatre, during a performance for the Butoh Festival. David and I had practiced with a setup that included his zither and my Tetrazzi and Cocoquantus. The piece, designed by Claire Elizabeth Barratt, involved the use of a number of instruments set out in a space to be played by wandering musicians.  This video captured a part of it. Because of the complexity of the overall resulting sound, I decided to omit the Cocoquantus and just use Tetrazzi. We all wandered about slowly, playing instruments at will. I wasn’t the only one playing Tetrazzi.
