Ewen, Sandy / Damon Smith: Valle de Mexico (Confront)

Label: Confront    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Sandy and I stared working on our duo music shortly after I moved to Houston, Texas from California in 2010, as well as the duo music it became the core of several important projects with musicians such as Keith Rowe, Weasel Walter, Roscoe Mitchell, Jaap Blonk and Chris Cogburn. This concert was part a series called "Desbordamientos" at Cine Tonala, in Mexico City, Mexico curated by Fernando Vigueras and Chris Cogburn pairing improvised music concerts while screening Derek Bailey's four part series on improvisation. Days before, Sandy & I played in the home of a favorite writer of mine, Octavio Paz. The Album and track titles are taken from his poem, Valle De Mexico."-Damon Smith
