Improvised Opera

If we told you that this recording should be considered one long piece rather than 6 pieces, you would quite possibly accept this. But, similarly, if we said it is six independent pieces and not one long piece, again, probably you would accept it maybe even more readily, especially as it is separated into 6 different pieces. More at the behest of Bandcamp than us, but still… However, if one of us Shepherds says you should listen to it as one piece and another says you ought to listen to it as six different pieces, where does that leave you? But then again, don’t listen to us, listen to us.

“What time is it?” she said to the man sitting next to her – the third person in a row that she had asked the same question.
“Half past three,” he replied.
“Do you have any money for me?”
“Are you kidding?! You don’t look poor or crazy!”
The man next to her, drinking Jever, was only half right. If we sit next to someone just for a minute, there’s only one thing we don’t know: whether they are crazy or not.
I left her with her thoughts, like an epitaph: eat your chips in peace.

First ever concert of improvising trio Shepherds of Cats. Intuitively bond, exploring the outer limits of good taste and pushing the limits of what should be considered as acceptable. Their compositions are created in real time, though time like good taste and other senses may be suspended…
