Space case: Marshall Allen, EWI-toting magician

As you can see above, Marshall Allen is a blast live. Via the Volume, here is my review of his performance at Vision Festival XIV on Wednesday, augmented by a collage of pics by Laal Shams.

what did you think of his set before the arkestra set? I think I would have preferred to see that. last few times I've seen the arkestra it's been terribly disorganized (even for the arkestra) and the sound has been horrendous. but Marshall and Han Bennink duo earlier this year in Philly was sublime. His EVI playing is unparalleled in the sense that he plays it as if it were still the 1960s. It's like this other sound artist/musique concrète cat we have in Philly named Charles Cohen who's using Ableton and other components that are 30 or more years old. Sounds like stuff out of the original Batman for TV or bad 70s sci-fi movies.
