Candiria news and notes

Since their serious van accident last September, Brooklyn's Candiria has been on hiatus, as various surgeries, physical therapy, and general recuperation have taken priority. Lately though, members of the group have slowly been getting into the swing of things. More specifically, in January, three-fifths of the group performed with their side-project, Ghosts of the Canal, at the Micro Museum in Brooklyn, NY, in part of a multimedia production that also features live dancers, videography, and projections. The performance, one of a concert series called "Fertile Ground," also includes compositions by Candiria guitarist John LaMacchia. "Fertile Ground" will be on view until March 1st, with a second live performance scheduled to take place today (2/9). More information can be obtained here. In related news, on February 18th Candiria drummer Kenneth Schalk will make his first public appearance on drums since the accident, backing a jazz ensemble at New York City's Knitting Factory (Alterknit Theatre). The ensemble includes Barry Seroff, Daniel Carter, and trumpeter Tim Byrnes, who has performed on some of Candiria's previous recordings. As for Candiria, the group has been using some of their downtime to begin writing material for their next album, and according to bassist Mike MacIvor, "it's going to blow people's minds."
