Thomas and friends at High Zero 2002
Before The Beginning
Documentation of extremely unusual sets from the High Zero 2002, with
Oleyumi Thomas (reeds, percussion), Jim baker (piano, synthesizer),
Andy Hayleck (hydrophones, amplified gong/wire), and Helena Espvall-Santoleri
(cello). Oluyemi Thomases vocal, repetative bass clarinet approach
has a unique quality and his highly imaginative improvising is explored
in a series of contrasting settings. Gives "cosmic music"
a good name.
