CRATER was born out of my love of groove, sonic soundscapes, and improvising.
JHNO is an electronic musician with whom I've worked with a bit in the past in more composed situations. I thought that it would be great to play with him in a completely improvised situation, especially since he is a great improviser. JHNO comes from a jazz piano background, and practically gets inside his computer to manipulate and rebuild its brain day-in and night-out.
CRATER is about entering the unknown abyss of improv without the headlights on. The music hits on groove and noise, beauty, tension, love, anger, rage, kindness kind, chaos, motion, stop motion... no one knows what's going to happen... no one knows what lies beneath... beneath might be above... light might be dark... wet might be dry... fall in...
