Crucible Sound in Pop City's Pop Filter

There's a nice piece on Pop Filter today about tomorrow's Crucible Sound event, including this quote from me:
"I'm intrigued to see what will happen when ideas collide, when people are compelled to find common ground instantly in the act of music-making. I also wanted to try to subvert any pre-conceived notions of what improvised music is 'supposed to' sound like. Crucible Sound requires that participants have a certain openness to uncertainty," says Levin-Decanini
I'm really looking forward to hearing what Margaret, Ben, Ken, and Maurice create tomorrow night at Modernformations. I'll also be announcing the lineup for Crucible Sound #2 very soon.
