"From 1981-86 DAVID WATSON was active in the New Zealand music and art scene, as a member of PRIMITIVE ARTS GROUP, appearing in the first New Zealand International Arts Fest, and co-founded Braille Records to record the local improv music scene (which released 12 LPs in the eighties). He released three LPs on Braille, and did much to create an improv/noise-music scene where previously there was none. In 1987 he moved to New York and has performed in clubs, new music and concert venues throughout New York, Europe, Australia, NZ and Japan since then. From 1988 to 1995 he played primarily guitar performances in New York with Ushio Torikai, Ikue Mori, Mark Ribot, Zeena Parkins, Kato Hideki, Cecil Taylor, William Hooker, Shelley Hirsch, Andrea Parkins plus many others at venues like CBGBs, Knitting Factory, the Cooler, as well as curating music series like Roulette, Experimental Intermedia, St. Marks Church, Greenwich House, Bang-on-a-Can, PS 1, and PS 122. He did a Japan tour with John Zorn, and members of the Boredoms, Merzbow, Ground Zero, Makigami Koichi, and others."- Ecstatic Peace.

Title: Fingering an Idea
Format: Double CD
Label: XI
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2007 release. "Fingering an Idea (a phrase pulled from a Chris Mann piece) resulted from a Phill Niblock invitation to make a double CD for bagpipe and guitar. A bagpipe CD is a particular challenge. A high beam spatial explorer, it is the kind of unstable phenomena that is hard to enjoyably reproduce on your stereo player. The first pipe recording session was an ensemble piece, the score including walks around the concert hall. The second, a solo multi-track session. The third with Rob Ramirez, recorded material was played back in the concert hall through an eight-channel MSP patch. A carnival of colliding pans, exits and entrances, re-recorded for stereo. For “Sinister,” an old cassette recorded at Amica Bunker was the original germ. A sequence of re-tuning and de-stringing, starting with six strings pitched across a whole-tone and ending with an improvisation on one string. This old piece was dusted off and reworked through an image of bell-ringing, another outdoors vernacular." --David Watson.
