Odessa Chen / Carta / John Vecchiarella - 2008-09-19 - Hotel Utah SF
All sets recorded by myself with the following rig:
Sonic Studios DSM-6L > SS PA-06 batbox > Belkin Tunetalk > iPod nano 2nd gen 8Gb
As far as I know, none of it has ever been circulated, though the tracksplits/preparation were done shortly after this was recorded.
Sorry, I have no track IDs for these. Seems to have featured quite a bit of handling noise, and a bit of conversation with Carta.
For Carta, "Santander" / "Hourglass" / "Sidereal" / "Descension" was released on 2010's An Index Of Birds. Perdido appears on 2007's The Glass Bottom Boat. As far as I know, first track "Sexton" (which is outstanding) has never been officially released.
04 Between Twilight and the Morning (new one) 4:35
05 Snow Angels 5:17
06 'Your Arms Around Me' 6:32
07 The Ballad Of Paper Ships 4:23
08 Small Birds 5:35
09 outro 0:52
Both of these acts have gorgeous instrumentation, and Odessa wass in fine voice here for this show. I remember the acoustics were weird because the bar was outside of the interior gig room but seemed to wrap around, so you could never quite forget that playing at the Utah was still in effect a bar show.
I’m well aware of my shortcomings…so please hold any criticism and use it to inform the creation of your own work. - ODESSA CHEN
Well said. I can tell you having produced a few of my own original works... I am in no way qualified to inform my own works with any criticism I may have of others! That's not to say I can't critique the phenomenon of someone like Miley Ray Cyrus in terms of the lack of equilibrium in terms of her position in the mainstream or as a part of the machinery inherent in the sausage grinder of late capitalism (versus her own musical ability and muses), but what have I done compared to someone like that, much less someone like Odessa?
