Three Syllables: The Death Set

Posted by Stacy / June 18, 2010

The Death Set Friendship Cove Montreal Indie Punk Music Live Stacyann Lee Brooklyn Counter RecordsI always confuse bands from Brooklyn (read: Ninjasonik, Matt n Kim, Japanther, Big A Little a) and Baltimore (read: Future Islands,Nuclear Power Pants,Dan Deacon).I don't know what it is about these places that makes their bands so amazing to see live.Lucky for me, there's no confusion withThe Death Set since the band has taken over both "B's" and is a fine example of what Brooklyn's got to offer.

As per usual, here are a few photos from last night's gig :

Your points here are tolltay applicable to improvisational music. A lot of the most rewarding musical improvisation that I've done has terrified me. It happens when I am forced beyond the boundaries of what I know during a performance. Being pushed beyond my comfort zone when the stakes are high forces me to trust and communicate with my fellow performers on a whole new level.I remember in an interview about playing with Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter describes how he felt like an astronaut like he was exploring uncharted territory because something new and surprising would happen in the performance every night. This terrifying yet exhilarating experience of exploration is where a lot of the joy and magic of improvising comes from.In case anyone is interested, here's the interview with Wayne Shorter that I mentioned. The quote I referenced starts around 2:45 and is followed by a clip of Wayne Playing a solo with Miles.
