Congrats on the recent tour. I'm sure some friends of mine from back in the day caught you at the Jazz educator's conference.

Great points re: the wordless orchestra. I just picked up the new recording of the Bryars The Sinking of the Titanic with Philp Jeck contributing a lot of vinyl noise to the over all orchestration. There are some breath taking moments on this CD where you can't discern (immediately) what is a pre recorded sample, a looped vinyl recording or a live chamber music performance. It's another interesting progression with the piece - a dub like approach to compositional materials which I always dig.

Take care.
