Shelley Burgon - pedal harp 
Trevor Dunn - contrabass  

 

"Wavering between patient meditation and maniacal catharsis Dunn and Burgon mine the narrow fissure between pure improvisation and through-composed chamber music, slashing at the extreme interplay between steel, string and wood.  Strings are beaten or jimmied with clothespins, the harp alternately caressed and throttled.  The sonic equivalent of a Joseph Cornell box, the duo has a haunting, cinematic quality that is both staggeringly complex and achingly beautiful"
