Anybody else using kitchen tools in their musical practice? I’ve been experimenting with aluminum foil mutes — the ultimate in flexibility. I saw The Westerlies doing it and thought I’d give it a try. You may have seen me playing with this with Marc Ribot and Susie Ibarra Music. This is a mute you can get almost anywhere, whether or not it is on the rider. Someone in France asked me where I got this mute. I said, “the kitchen.” They didn’t believe me.
