The experimental “post-classical” band Teach Me Equals was in Duluth in 2014 for a performance at Red Herring Lounge. The next day the duo teamed up with Manny Villanueva and Brandon St. Germaine of the Duluth-based creative video outfit Clear Cut to record three songs performed live for a series of “Oners.”
Part 1: “Lullaby for Piano”
Part 2: “As the Crow Flies”
Part 3: “Dictionary of Imaginary Places”
