TONY CONRAD / C. SPENCER YEH / MICHAEL F. DUCH: Musculus Trapezius
“An epic performance captured pristine, unfurling its massive limbs patiently and cannily over the course of seventy-plus minutes. TONY CONRAD mingles among trusted wood-and-steel sidekicks, engaged in both age-old conversations and inspired new inquisitions; C. SPENCER YEH bookends his passive/aggressive behavior on violin with spare piano incantations; MICHAEL F. DUCHS acts as a ghostly anchor, casting formidable binding and deft velocity. Drones flow freely, but these reliable horizons fracture into surprising detours, tearing apart the instruments, the players involved, and the expectations of the music itself. “ The Omega Order
