These days in contemporary music, most musicians don’t leave much to chance when they play live. They either adhere to note-for-note recreations of their recorded work or they just have it all in a computer, hit play and have a perfect, if frozen performance. Ambient guitarist Matt Borghi and saxophonist Michael Teager don’t work that way. They create their music in the moment, improvising on mood and texture. Borghi has been at the ambient thing for years with several recordings of barely-there ambient guitar out. Teager comes from more of a jazz tradition. The two musicians talk about the genesis of their music from a lounge act and jam band into their free form excursions tonight on Echoes.
