Album Notes
Wood & Wires documents the collaboration between Ray Dillard and Don Nichols throughout vastly different physical spaces. Engaging an array of percussion instruments, circuit-bent electronics, found objects and environmental sounds, the duo crafts dynamic musical exchanges while inhabiting their surroundings.

Ray Dillard is a percussionist, composer and producer based in Toronto, Canada. He is the long-time Recording Engineer/Producer and Business Manager of the iconic Nexus Percussion Group. Don Nichols is an LA-based percussionist, composer and educator. He is the Music Director for the Dance Department at Long Beach State University.

Together, Dillard and Nichols explored non-traditional spaces of a barn (tracks 1, 3, 6, 13), living room (tracks 2, 7, 10), and electronically between California and Toronto (tracks 4, 8, 9, 11, 12). The result is a collection of [quickly] shifting sonic environments/landscapes, each with a distinctive landscape.

All compositions created and performed by Ray Dillard and Don Nichols except Precho created and performed by Don Nichols and A-Round-whole(d) created and performed by Ray Dillard. Tracks 2, 5, 7, 10 recorded at Crush Studio. Tracks 1, 3, 6, 13 recorded at Sand Forest Barn. Tracks 4, 8, 9, 11, 12 recorded at Crush Studio and Princess Ranch.
