Abstract improv in a swampy atmosphere aided by lots of gloopy electronics. Trumpet and sax/clarinet are the lead voices, backed by eerie sonic from G.E. Stinson's guitar. Tempos tend toward the slow side, with murky sour tones -- jazz from a dark future of machines. Noise fans should be pleased.|
1- Low-key, cavernous, often quiet/spare. Ends with fast doodles
2- Strange, slow; gets into some eerie horn lines. Nice, relaxed clarinet solo.
3- Ominous growls, slow feel. Later, fleet sax and electronics duel over spooky bass pulse.
4- Slow and mysterious. Sci-fi electronics. Lonely trumpet solo over spare, jittery guitar landscape. Coolly jazzy sax/bass ends it.
5- Jazzy guitar/trumpet, in a dark quiet way. Bleepy and burbly thereafter, with some slow-shredding guitar; cool bass clarinet near the end
6- Fast sax over sour-toned slow jumble. Then various odd sounds over what sounds like faint Chinese chimes. Quiets down for a deep cavernous sound
7- Wandering jazzy solos over increasingly harsh background. Cools after 5 minutes for eerie sci-fi soundscaping,
8- Vidgame war! Later, grinding industrial sounds. Noisy.
