Boise Set, Bundt Pans and event notes...

Here is the Boise set for your entertainment, the link to the stream is at the bottom of this post.

It appears that people in Boise do not value their Bundt Pans.
I found two fine specimens at the Idaho Youth Ranch thrift store.
One was the extremely unfinished "holy mother of aluminum" version.
Rare indeed. The sonic qualities of cast aluminum Bundt Pans are legendary for their resonance and sustain. The bell like qualities are like a bell from a parallel universe. Route that through a contact mic and you have a gateway to a wonderland of fun.

The city of Boise is clean walkable and safe. Bill and I had a great time checking out the downtown.

The sets at the Boise Creative and Improvised Music festival were varied and intriguing. Lots of surprises, which is the feature of improvised music that keeps me coming back for more.

I was paired with Colter Frasier to start the random match up part of the festival. That provided an opportunity to stretch out on the newly aquired Bundt Pans and Slide Trumpet. I was a fun feature that was unique to this festival.

Here is the stream of the phog masheeen set at B-CIMF 2011. Also Available at

Boise Bundt pans make such lovely sounds

Although I too love the soothing sustain of a ringing Bundt pan, The Shock and Awe "Bundts of Boise" may have been a stretch for the interested parties at the venue. It was fun to do though! I like leaving a city with more tools than I arrived with.
