Fragments from an Improvisation for Abandoned Parking Garage


Abandon Reason, Galway, Ireland. 27 January 2013.


Declan Kelly discovered an abandoned underground parking garage in his home town of Galway. He decided to invite musicians in to improvise. Abandon Reason was the resulting label, dedicated to recordings made in this unlikely spot.

A compilation album was launched on 27 January 2013. On that day I joined a number of others for several hours of improvisation, from which these fragments have been taken.


Thanks to Declan Kelly, and a shout-out to the other musicians, especially Catherine Sikora (saxophone) and Dave Colohan (nefar, bugel).
