The last selection—because it was the last one that spun in the door—is an oddity. Brief West Coast tour was recorded a short tour involving pianist/composer Sila Shaman and percussionist/mad sound scientist Dave Storrs in the Corvallis, Oregon area, during Shaman's stopover from her home base in New York, on her way to Singapore with her family. A two day recording session went down in Storrs' "Sound Shack," his garage converted to a ready-to-roll-anytime recording studio. Storrs released a rough copy of the set on a limited edition CD. This more produced version—curated by Shaman, in a deft manipulations of the sounds via electronics embellishments, sometimes covertly, sometimes overtly—turned a fine set of avant-garde music into one of the year's most alluring and adventurously beautiful albums.
