The Collective provided musical ambience for the opening of the Digital Canvas show at the Ann Arbor
Art Center, where Beatles Fat Ra and dis-assembler showed some of their visual work. Large crowd served as our
dueting partner, playing against/with/in constant evaluation of the white noise of spectators.
Our annual appearance at Stormy Records for the Ear Candy festival featured
an abbreviated Collective. Beatle Chris represented all things rattling
for an appreciative crowd, performing solo on electric guitar with various
kitchen implements. He then dueted with electronicist/thereminist Andrew
Coltrane. WHFR will be releasing a recording and DVD of the festival (including
this performance) in the future. Thanks (as always) to Scott Boatright
and Windy and Car
