Electric eclectic free jazz. Sax-assault space-scape electronic iterations. Post-apocalyptic sonic geographies. Power electronic anti-minimalistic psycho noise-jazz . Influences range from Fripp to Borbetomagus drawing inspiration from circuit bending and noise-music and the the acoustic experience of Squid Choir Orkestra's musical "alter ego", the Free Jazz Posse.
