Dafna Naphtali and Ursel Schlicht forge their respective and unique approaches to their instruments and music. Dafna’s instrument is live sound processing — “audio machinations” of her extended vocal techniques and other instruments. In this performance she lets loose on Ursel Schlicht’s signature techniques inside the piano and at the keyboard, and in the second set in a quartet with guests Briggan Krauss and Satoshi Takeishi– electro-acoustic improvisations, live sound processing, tight interaction between music and audio gestures and phrasing, and an exploration/inspiration of a tune or two by (recently departed) pianist Borah Bergman.
