Ernesto Diaz-Infante and Chris Forsyth have a longstanding duo collaboration that now includes four releases, many performances, American and European tours. Their third duo release, 'march,' was recorded in Brooklyn, NY following their three week European tour in early 2002. This recording is a document of the concepts they honed together during numerous performances, train rides, conversations, and through collaborations with other musicians they met on that tour. The result covers a varied sonic terrain, incorporating spare, gestural preparations, electronic static, ringing open strings, and delicate piano/guitar interplay, all with an overarching compositional vision. The thirteen tracks include duo pieces for acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and piano, solo pieces (one by each artist), and three improvised songs featuring vocals and drums by Diaz-Infante. Within the final track is an extended, hidden piece recorded live at Roulette Intermedium in New York City by Jim Staley.
