Album Notes
Experimental improvisations by competent jazz musicians and soundscape artists. Intense, creative and a little weird.

This is the first Ensemble Abstract album. It leans toward upbeat, aggressive pieces. Mind blowing!

Hypothesis: music can reach new and exciting levels by reducing preconceptions and allowing musicians to respond to one another rather than performing established notation.

Materials: assemble competent musicians with an interest in pushing musical limits.

Procedure: discuss and build a basic musical roadmap with some planned elements and hit record.

Control: the control is the magnetic recordable medium to which all performances are captured.

Variables: each musician is free to improvise whatever they want in response to what others are playing.
