Large orchestra, playing dark and menacing compositions that follow slow composed lines. There's also a great deal of freedom, in the form of chaotic improvisation that's written into the mix.|
The music leaves spaces for the group to cut loose and improvise for an orchestra-tuning-up sound. Like most ensembles of its type, the group is characterized by a large, lumbering sound. See London Improvisers Orchestra, Jeff Kaiser's Ockodektet, or Marco Eneidi (American Jungle Orchestra) for comparison points.
Some parts have a sour, dissonant sound, where I'm guessing Rosenberg follows Anthony Braxton's example by letting the players choose the notes themselves.
1- Dark, a bit menacing. Characterized by long unison tones, with occasional bits of fast scrabbly chaos
2- Starts with the same dark menacing feel. But it's gentler, with long-note progressions that "feel" more orchestral.
3- Includes quiet flurries of group improv for a faster, busier feel. Also some soprano wordless vocal
4- More long tones, with piano and trumpet (among others) improvising for some nice color
5- Chirpy double-time pulses, a quicker pace
