"Andrew Reed Miller began last night’s set by doing things to his solo double bass that seemed, well, unnatural. Accompanied by his MacBook, a video projection screen and several mouth instruments, he performed his new original work called ‘L-EDGY’.'This is serious music,' the guy behind me said loudly after the applause ended. And he nailed it".
