Jon Raskin and Myles Boisen: Music + One

Music + One, created in collaboration with Myles Boisen, is a collection of solo improvisations that is meant to be played along with by improvisers. The instructions given to the participants before recording were simple: improvise for 3 to 4 minutes, as if you were playing music with your shadow. This was to allow room for others to improvise with the recording.

To test this, we invited the musicians to play along with one of the tracks at the 21Grand Performance Space & Art Gallery on September 23, 2005. The tracks were played randomly, and the players were grouped into duos, trios, or quartets, with the recording counting as one player. There were so many wonderful moments that we decided to release the project as a CD.

The musicians include George Cremaschi, David Slusser, Jen Baker, Larry Ochs, Chris Brown, Gino Robair, Liz Allbee, Garth Powell, Bill Horvitz, Kiku Day, Myles Boisen, Theresa Wong, Moe! Staiano, Rhodri Davies, John Shiurba, Jon Raskin, Ches Smith, Aurora Josephson, Jonathan Segel, Phillip Gelb, Philip Greenlief, and Tim Perkis.

Recorded at Guerrilla Recording and mastered at Headless Buddha Mastering Lab in the spring of 2005 by Myles Boisen. Produced by Jon Raskin. Photos by Jon Raskin and Zora Raskin.
