Interventions #22: Jeffrey Lependorf, Brian Moran, Matt Hannafin, Ravi Padmanabha - Four Ideas of Stillness: The second live release from Brooklyn's Avant Yard series, an outdoor performance event in which improvisers are encouraged to work with the ambient sounds of the neighborhood: birds, sirens, children's voices, overflying planes, etc. For this performance, the duo Shunyata (Brian Moran, electronics; Matt Hannafin, percussion) were joined by shakuhachi player Jeffrey Lependorf and percussionist Ravi Padmanabha for a set that explored the concept of stillness, with each musician approaching the idea from his own perspective. "The Great Way has no gate. Clear water has no taste. The tongue has no bone. In complete stillness, a stone girl is dancing." -- Seung Sahn. Recorded 9-11-05. Total time: 55:55. to purchase contact: Jeffrey Lependorf, Matt Hannafin, Brian Moran, Ravi Padmanabha
