The music is highly improvised, working from motifs and compositions by Wayne Horvitz, with an emphasis on grooves influenced by African pop music, 60s modal jazz and open improvisations. The music ranges from almost experimental to almost folkish, but with a singular sound. Originally a quarter with Dave Abramson and Evan Flory-Barnes, the updated version is a sextet with the double percussion and violin added to the mix.Wayne Horvitz is a composer, pianist and electronic musicians.
