---Liner Notes by PEK

I formed Turbulence in 2015 as I started to assemble players for the Leap of Faith Orchestra. Turbulence, the extended horn section for the Orchestra (along with guests on other instruments), also records and performs as an independent unit. As if this writing in May of 2018, we have had about 20 albums on Evil Clown with greatly varied ensembles. The only musician on all of them is myself. The sessions range from an early duet with Steve Norton and Myself (Vortex Generation Mechanisms) to a 5 horn band with bass and two percussionists (Encryption Schemes) to four albums by the side project Turbulence Doom Choir which feature myself, multiple tubas, percussion, electronics and signal processing.

This Turbulence set, Tumult, is performed by 5 regular horn players from the overall Evil Clown project. All have played with each other in multiple settings, and all have played many times with the auxiliary Evil Clown instruments. Together, theses things make a perfect ensemble to perform the Evil Clown broad palate improvisation aesthetic. Here, everyone plays their own wind instruments and we play wood and metal percussion instruments, game calls and other little instruments. When each player has access to so many different sounds, the improvisation naturally transforms through highly varied sonorities…

Funny story… at 2 pm on the day of the show, I had a dentist appointment for a new crown. Dentist numbed me up real good and I thought it would wear off in a few hours, but at 7:30 I was still a bit numb and I thought I might not be able to play the double reeds which require pressure from above and below the reed… Anyway, it wore off just in time for the show!
