This afternoon, we had Harrius, Dan Conrad, and Stewart Mostofsky in studio for the second half of the program.

Harrius is Jenny Graf Sheppard and Chiara Giovando. They played two short sets and spoke about their work as Harrius, specifically about the challenges of playing together and collaborating now that they are a bicoastal duo. We also spoke about multimedia versus more traditional "musical" performances, the former of which took place in a 2 set show at the Stone 3/22 and the latter of which occurred in the later set at the Stone on 3/23.

Dan Conrad played a short set on vina bambina. Vina bambina is an instrument Conrad invented -- if you missed the set, check out a link to an image and recording of the instrument, really a one-of-a-kind creation.

Stewart Mostofsky also stopped in to talk about Dan's set and the three Harrius sets coming up at the Stone. He also discussed Ehse Records, how the curation fest at the Stone came about, and Baltimore's art scene.
