Sixty Seconds cd cover

Cd: Sixty Interpretations of Sixty Seconds, by Sixty Solo Improvisors, Apprise Records 2010.

A collection of solo improvisations sewn together back-to-back by sixty innovative, forward thinking musicians from all over the World.
The compilation is made by David Sait in Brampton, ON, canada, with the concept “To hear how sixty different improvising musicians would interpret sixty seconds. Execution: I pose the question... How would you interpret sixty seconds through an improvisation? Your Answer would come in the version of a sixty second improvised recording on your instrument.”
My piece is recorded at EMS. I play a Platform (a single one, although I usually have two) with objects. No overdubs, no cuts, no treatments except slight compression.
