KISS2014 -- Improvisations 2014: Michael Wittgraf
David Cariano Timme, percussion
Improvisations 2014 is a collaborative series of free improvisations between Malcolm Lynn Baker (University of Denver) and Michael Wittgraf (University of North Dakota). It began in 2011, arising from a partially funded University of North Dakota Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Grant, which enabled the purchase of key equipment and modes of travel so that Baker and Wittgraf could work together in the long term. Exchange of ideas and computer files took place through the internet and airplane/motorcycle travel. This collaboration is an exploration of the possibilities that arise when the sounds of musicians are electronically manipulated by other musicians in a live, freely improvised setting.
