DETAILS::

Jack Callahan & Tyler Wilcox

The piece is called "7.2.11".

"7.2.11" was written by Callahan on that day in Zürich, CH, in a small room in the Altstetten neighborhood. The piece deals with the simplest interaction between two musicians.

Spiderwebs

is the duo of Tom Carter and Sandy Ewen. Since Spiderwebs' 2003 inception, Carter's guitar playing has traveled a long, strange road from his spacious improvisations with Charalambides to the immersive pyrotechnics of his current solo playbook. Ewen's mangled percussive explosions, high-harmonic shrieks, and Bailey-esque realtime stereo panning echo the aesthetic terrorism

of electric Donald Miller, and provide a perfect foil to Carter's

damaged looping psychedelia. Both push their sound to improbable extremes to launch Spiderwebs into higher-key incandescence.

Tom Carter

"Instead of macro-analysing which direction Guitar music should take in the 21st century, his interest is personal and seems to derive from the question what'd happen if one were to continue the last seconds of a Garage-Rock song, when the singer and the rest of the band have already left the stage..." - Tobias Fischer, Tokafi.com
