Valladoid, Paolo / Gary Rouzer
Directions for Viola and Cello
Released in: Great Britain
"These tracks were recording in a large tunnel and its surroundings that is part of a bike path and nature trail in Alexandria, Virginia. Our viola and cello were joined by joggers, birds, traffic, flowing water, a cell phone, insects, and bicycles to create the music. We played for an hour, until it got dark and we could stand the biting bugs no longer. No further editing, processing, or post production was done other than fade in and fade out."-Confront
"This is the third release and first studio recording from violist Valladolid and cellist Rouzer. Paolo and Gary never employ electronics, preferring their acoustic instruments and sometimes preparations of plastic, wood, or metal. The photo above displays the preparations used on this studio recording.
Paolo and Gary first played together in a large tunnel that runs under highway 395 in Alexandria Virginia. This outdoor session became their debut album "Directions for Viola and Cello" and was released on Confront Recordings (CCS41) in March 2015. Their second album "Viola Cello Room" (VCR) is a live recording and was released in August 2015 on Bandcamp."-Paolo Valladoid and Gary Rouzer Bancamp page
