Michael Lytle - Bass Clarinet
Han-earl Park - Guitar

recorded by Michael Lytle
Mixed in Elewhale Studios, W. Rupert, VT by Michael Lytle

This recording was made as part of the Sunday COMA Music Series (Citizens Ontological Music Agenda) at the ABC No Rio, New York, NY in September, 2013 - curated by Blaise Siwula (many thanks, Blaise)

A great venue for experimental music, Blaise's COMA Series is very creative "bring your own set-up" place to play and always has a great listening audience.

Elewhale Music Productions is very proud to present this duo performance as a very strong improvised set. The 1st piece is a "no holds bared" straight ahead popping acoustic transicient sprint while the 2nd piece is more thoughtful and spacious in the beginning. Truly two inspired master improvisors were in attendance.
