Two tracks from two groupings, anchored by Ernesto Rodrigues on viola and Jonathan Sielaff on bass clarinet, paired first with Vic Rawlings on cello & electronics and Leif Sundstrom on electronics; then with Gust Burns on piano and Manuel Mota on electric guitar. Both extended improvisations were recorded live at Noriaki Watanabe at Gallery 1412 in 2006, bringing well-versed West Coast and Lisbon free improvisers together for two related but uniquely toned works. Both pieces unfold slowly, the first focused more on sound and tone, while the second is more punctuated using more recognizable instrumentation. Thoughtful, patient and rewarding sounds from skilled innovators in improvisation.

• Show Bio for Manuel Mota
"Manuel Mota (born October 22, 1970) is an experimental jazz and blues guitarist from Lisbon, Portugal.
Mota started playing guitar at 15. In the late 1980s his discovery of experimental music, jazz and all the underground activity of that period inspired him to turn his work public, which happened in 1989. Between 1989 and 1997 he studied and experimented with prepared guitar, mainly acoustic, and focused his work on drone music, influenced by Phill Niblock and La Monte Young. Since then his interests shifted to the development of a personal language for fingerstyle guitar and started working in a regular basis with bassist Margarida Garcia.
He collaborated closely with Sei Miguel from 1997 to 2005. In 1998 he founded Headlights, a record label. Artists whom Mota has played and recorded with include Tetuzi Akiyama, Chris Corsano, Lukas Ligeti, Mattin, Donald Miller (of Borbetomagus), Phill Niblock, Gino Robair, and Ernesto Rodrigues."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manuel_Mota_(guitarist))
