Several weeks ago I was invited to play with Abe Sada, performing as part of the ADSA conference held at WAAPA. We set up in alcoves along a glass corridor, a mix between performance and installation. The audience walked around and through the space, and listened from down the hall and outside the glass while sipping their coffees and taking a relaxing break. Abe Sada is a group of 4 or more (up to 25) bass guitars, with scored instructions to play in a particular low range using particular techniques and sounds.
