The Smell, Los Angeles - Ten Year Anniversary, 4 Jan 2007
Damion Romero and Scarnella (Carla Bozulich and Nels Cline)

As well as a gifted sound artist, Carla also is one of the most emotionally potent singers I've ever heard sing. I saw her perform in L.A. at the end of her Red Headed Stranger tour a few years ago (with Nels). Her voice had such a mournful fragility, making me ache but feel alive inside. The interpretation of Willie Nelson's songs were magical.
at The Smell.
I performed with an experimental improvisational ensemble with Mitchell Brown at the PCH Club years ago on the same bill with Scarnella.
|Manipulating the sound. I'm not sure why I like this photo so much. Nels is crouching, there's a table blocking half of him, but I can hear the sound when I look at this photo.|
