Victoria Guitar Trio Play Godin

Victoria Guitar Trio-march22-1Some clips from a recent concert I played in with my buddies from the Victoria Guitar Trio on March 22, 2015. These movements are from a multi-movement work named On Poetics written for us by Scott Edward Godin. This is just four of seven movements. Inspired by Aristotle and many musical references. Listen for references to popular music and classical quotes too! My favorite is the last one with some good Crosstown Traffic going on! You can put your guesses in the comment section for the other movements.
