Ten years of intrepid musical cartography: drone music with orchestral percussion and computer interaction, Bruce Springsteen cover with Sam from Future Islands, loop creation for Blacksage, faux retro soul film music, graphic scores, clearing lobbies and generating complaints at fancy Manhattan hotels, three records and a few tapes of computer-processed free improv on Friends Records and other labels, and of course the sweaty and fervent comic cosmic benders that are their live shows.
