about

Five new tracks of solo violin improvisations by our friend Mike Khoury, a familiar face to the Detroit-area improvisation scene (his duos with Ben Hall and Chris Riggs are well worth seeking out). These tracks were all recorded live at various radio stations, legit and not-so-legit, around the US. Khoury on his own emits carefully wrought ribbons of lyrical, stream-of-consciousness violin playing, alternately leaving tons of space, letting his notes really hang, then obsessing over small, scratchy sounds or dissonant harmonies. It's worth mentioning his huge, full-bodied sound on the violin, reminding one of the his beautiful duet with Ben Hall (bim-09), one of the high points in Bug Incision's catalogue. A lovely, unified addition to his ever-expanding body of work.
