The first public gathering of David Birchall, Yoni Silver and Otto Willberg gets spectral with big unfolding arcs and slow moving mountains. Guitar strings provide ropes to pull oneself over the new ground and our breathing is tempered by the slow wobble of a cane reed all being dragged sometimes gently sometimes with some brambly determination. Building amidst the rubble carefully picking what’s worth keeping and bending things to necessity. Also lurking in grey reeds not saying yes or no or even maybe just.
