Robert Burke - Mercurochrome
Recorded October 2014 at Acoustic Recording, Brooklyn, the band was to learn and perform the compositions but " instructions were given regarding artistic direction in the improvisations, they were inherently connected to the compositions or central ideas developed as a basis of the musical conversation" - Rob Burke.
