GD011 A.MICA 3 Live Sound — Various

This was the third in a series of three audiocassette-only releases that document improvisational (some not) music performances at A.MICA BUNKER in New York City. The series is a small aural snapshot of the Bunker. Many more recordings were made than are represented on the tapes. Several recordings were accidentally erased/recorded over and some were of poor quality.

Geoff Dugan made these recordings over a one-year period in 1993 every Sunday evening at ABC No Rio, where the series/lab was in residence. (Read a brief history of the “Bunker” here.) The intention of the series was to convey the atmosphere of the Bunker and to show how each improvisation as a recorded work can stand on its own as a composition. Each 60’ cassette was packaged with a black & white “j” card/paper insert with a photo of the interior of ABC No Rio taken during a Bunker performance. Originally released in 1994. Not available. Future CD-R release planned.
