Alternate Take – January 8th-14th

This weeks alternate take comes out of my Holga and from very close to my home in Xindian.  Lately, I have seen this guy pretty often in Bitan, playing his saw, accompanied by canned music.  Two comments:  First, for a saw player, he is not bad at all.  Second, like with virtually every other musician I have seen who adds recorded music to his live performances, the recorded music takes away, it doesn’t add to the experience.  What does it mean about me that I prefer my saw music solo?
