Tres Gone Presents the Bi-Coastal Orchestra Live F
Tres Gone is committed to the spontaneous interaction of the individual artists. This spontaneity brings the listener in contact with the moment of creative discovery of both the individual musician and the collective ensemble The Bi-Coastal Orchestra is a collaboration between three New York musicians, Armen Halburian ( percussion ), Mark Whitecage ( alto and clarinet ), and Rozeanne Levine ( clarinet ), and four Pacific Northwest musicians, Mike Mahaffay ( traps and percussion ), Scott Steele, ( guitar ), Eric Hausman ( stick and guitar ), and Bill Larimer ( piano ). The musicians stayed together for two weeks at Bill Larimer's home on a remote mountain top, playing and absorbing the countryside. They then played for the public at the 'Artistically friendly' performance space, The Dunes. This CD is the outcome of this collaboration.
