Rick Jensen、Dean Brown、Richard Whyte、3名のフリージャズ／エクスペリメンタル系アーティス等により結成されたユニットNova Scotiaの2005年ライブ録音。ニュージーランドのウェリントンにあるフォトギャラリーでのパフォーマンスで、1トラック目には同国のベテランAntony Miltonも参加。サックスを中心にギャラリー外の環境音、自作楽器、壊れた電子機器の演奏が絡んでゆく歪んだ即興4トラックの収録。
The recordings were done at 2 seperate gigs at Photospace Gallery in Wellington, NZ. I exhibited at the gallery twice and we began performing there quite often (the owner even played drums for my group The Rick Jensen Trio). Nova Scotia played a number of times there as the environment was particularly suited to us, outside was the main street in Wellington, where everyone would go drinking at night. It was all nightclubs and bars, buskers and drunk people. When we performed we'd open the windows and use any street sound that came through and integrate it into our performance. For the track that features Antony, we played a gig with him and then invited him to join us, it turned out to be an unusual song. All of the performances we did at Photospace had a particular feel to them, and we certainly developed our sound alot with these gigs. There's not a lot more to say about them, at this point we were using many homemade instruments, broken electronics, 4 tracks, and anything we had at hand. This album represents a highly experimental period for us and shows the way we were going at the time.
