Nate Trier combines manic underground dance music with avante garde classical serialism: faces are melted. Composer Barry Seroff guests on two tracks and provides free-jazz guitar freakouts.
Inspired by avante garde guitarist Derek Bailey's practice of jamming with pirate "jungle" stations in the late 80's, Trier sought to update this sound by using raggacore, jungle's quirky, manic offshoot, and adding serialism, or dodecaphony, to give the tracks an uneasy feeling of constant, restless motion. The result is a face-smacking combination of academic classical music and underground club music.
"Notes pass quickly away; numbers, however, though stained by the corporeal touch of pitches and motions, remain." -- - Scholia Enchiriadis
