Signposts is the collaboration between composers Bill Gilliam & Charlie Ringas performing prepared piano and percussion with spoken word. These pieces are based on the poetry and writings of Ivor Cutler, Don Van Vliet, Alan Lightman and Rumi. We perform these evocative texts and poetry to signpost our sound explorations with musical improvisations.
