A new CD by Chris Burns and Hal Rammel

Guitarist Chris Burns on Scrawl:

Scrawl is the product of a series of visits to Hal’s home in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, through the first half of 2013. We drank tea, talked (for hours and hours), and enjoyed Hal’s extraordinary record collection. I got to see, hear, and learn about more of Hal’s custom-made musical instruments, and to experience the change of seasons around his beautiful home (a converted barn and silo). And we played music, with Pip and Iris (the family dogs) as our audience.  Scrawl documents those explorations, with nine tracks combining Hal’s gestural, chiming performance on his handmade amplified palettes with my percussive approach to the electric guitar. Sometimes free, sometimes structured through a bit of discussion, our improvisations ranged as widely as our conversations.”
