short blurb

“Guitarist Han-earl Park is a musical philosopher…. Expect unexpected things from Park, who is a delightful shape-shifter….”

Brian Morton (Point of Departure)

“Tom Rainey is a player who swerves between avant-garde notions and a mainstream sensibility and when he plays the smell of invention is in the air”

Joseph Woodard (L.A Times)

Six strings, numerous membranes and metal discs.
One potentiometer plus twenty-two frets; chains, sticks and beaters.
Four arms, four legs; two bodies coupled to artifacts.

Crafty, resourceful, imaginative and virtuosic improvisative collision/dialog between drummer Tom Rainey and guitarist Han-earl Park.
