I just did a short spot on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland. Plugged the Human-Machine Improvisations (Cork, 2010) gig, and they also played a snippet of Bruce Coates with io 0.0.1 beta++ (audio recording below). I wonder how often improvised music gets on the national news 😉

Bruce Lee Gallanter of the Downtown Music Gallery has some nice things to say about the ParkDunmallSandersSmith CD [More info on this recording…]. Here’s, for example, is his take on the Park-Sanders duet:
