Marcia's Index of Metals

Marcia Bassett might be the busiest woman in improvisational music - GHQ, Double Leopards, Hototogisu, her duo work with Tom Carter in Zaika, and her own work in Zaimph. I was listening to a variety of Zaimph pieces this afternoon and suddenly realized how much her solo work is like Robert Fripp and Brian Eno collaborations. The repetitive loops sound like No Pussyfooting, while the scarier mood pieces are like "An Index of Metals" from Fripp and Eno's Evening Star. It's impossible to keep up with all her work, but I sure hope she plays Colorado some time soon.

Yeah, like how exactly do you "play" a beer can? Anything like playing a bong?
