Welcome to Un|Herd Archive episode number three. This time you’ll be hearing one of my earliest programs, dated back to October 16th, 2008. This features an improvisation between two New York based players, Ed Chang on electric guitar, percussive and vocal sounds, with MoToko Shimizu using her voice and children’s toys, and two Portland based players, Doug Theriault on electric guitar and John Niekrasz on drums. This will be a consistent, hour-long improvisation with no edits.

Lovers of Maurice Sendak’s perfect little book will likely be disappointed at worst, unsatisfied at best. I love the book, but I had to examine the movie as a separate entity, to judge whether it succeeds as a film.
