At TheatreWorks' soft opening of their new warehouse-style performance venue 72-13, with creaks and explosions and all, our dynamic duo, also our comic duo, Evan and Dharma presented their first foray into 'black ambient' delivered as a dark, sinister rendering of the most famous naval screw-up in history, also the most tragic example of man's pride and overwhelming ego.

Musically, it was a performance that stirred your insides and plunged you into deep dark waters swirling around this mammoth intrigue. In Evan's words, the sounds could become 'uncomfortable', something which listeners were cautioned about at the start of the gig. But there were many brave-hearted in attendance and many stayed to listen in the dark, and together with the musicians, venture farther and farther into an escalating wall of dramatic, multi-layered sounds that just got bigger and bigger. It was exciting hearing my own band budds doing something different and artsy as the event may be, i think the grand dame of all ships made quite an impact.

we recorded it all and will figure out a way to get it out there soon.
