  1. Why did you skip over Henry Grimes and Amina Claudine Myers at 9 p.m. on opening night, Tuesday the 7th of July? As a matter of fact, both of them have played and recorded with Roscoe Mitchell. But both of them are fully capable of all kinds of extended techniques, and without foot pedals or other electronic devices.

  2. Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, there are many musicians in New York that are capable of extended techniques, but we try to be as picky as we can (for the reasons why, read “about” page)
