Peter Blasser and Carson Garhart @ Artscape/Exotic Hypnotic, Langsdale Auditorium, July 20, 2007, Baltimore, MD
Peter Blasser and Carson Garhart bring some interesting instruments onto the stage with the electro-lute, devil's tone organus, french horn and jazz guitar. And I suspect there's more potential for those instruments than what they played in this particular set. They approach improvisation like two painters who simply happen to share the same canvas as they splash colors into the air without an interaction or reaction to one another. And this led to a blandness that the unique instrumentation simply didn't overcome.
