A mongrel project born out of wide-ranging influences, with a particular affinity for any music that positively influences perception and thinking. We’re developing a hybrid style that occasionally references its parents while dipping its toes into the sea of aleatory, indeterminant composition. Exploring juxtapositions of sounds and styles, melodies and noise, planned and random acts, field recordings and electronics, analog and digital… and hoping the music we create is both innovative, interesting and, importantly, sounds good!
