Improvisations of Frank Zappa meet the polyrhythms of Tortoise, with the sound of John Zorn’s wailing call of alto saxophone. King Crimson riffs wind with composed horn sectionals and the fracturing of music in the digital age.
Whoa. Heck yea.
Ups and downs, are smoothed out in the perpetual disruption of synchronicity and vagary of sounds and alternative possibilities.
Your mind explodes, in an artistic melee. A traunched propulsion of industrial, made in the means of a saxophone hegemony.
Cultivating and vexing.
Profundity, leveled in the most visceral and experiential.
