My trio ArtStar (with Anthony Cerretani, bass and live-action painting) and Michael Kwong (guitar and live-action painting) will open the ExperiMental Festival, produced by Pas Musique, at Spectrum, 121 Ludlow St, NYC, on Thursday, September 25 at 8PM. As always, we will invite the audience to draw to our improvisations; then we will improvise on the audience's new art work. A contact mike conveys the sounds of live-action painting into the music and out to the public.
