Petrified Gorgon

In July and October 2014, Camille Hesketh and I experimented with improvising and recording turns of phrase from particularly florid work by Giovanni Girolamo Kapsperger and a few words from an imagery-rich prose poem by Margaret Atwood. Petrified Gorgon was premiered February 14, 2016 in Chemainus, BC. This recording was made a year later with the help of Brian Chan.
