My collaborative acoustic guitar/tape looping duo with guitarist/looper/improvisational artist Daryl Shawn, Chinapainting has been together for a short group of performances this July. We were honored to be invited to perform recently in Cleveland at the cities Ingenuity Fest, an arts festival celebrating musical performance, theatrical performance, visual and aural art. We did two shows, these our first playing together in many months and as always now after working with Daryl it's like each time we just pick up where we left off in terms of our interaction. We get together live 2 to 3 times a year and do mini tours generally in the NY area and the west coast as well. In between we sometimes play live via a software called NinJam that allows us to send/receive real time audio over the Net. Here's a clip from the second Ingenuity set.

In this round of shows Chinapainting gets together two more times, both on Sunday, July 19th, the first with a live webcast as a special episode of my ustream show Sunday Morning at 11. Due to scheduling the Chinapaintinig ustream will occur at 3:30pm EST (12:30 PST, 1:30 MST, 2:30 CST, 8:30 UK, 9:30 western Europe, 4:30am Japan. Please tune in for this 'first ever' live Chinapainting web show.

Then that evening Chinapainting will take the stage at ABC NoRIo, a community arts and activism organization on the lower east side of Manhattan, at 8pm. Location is 156 Rivington and cost of admission is $5.

Come see us virtually and if in NYC at ABC NoRio.
