Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Neil Feather and John Berndt's development of a private musical language since 1992 as Thus is one of the oddest and most under-documented creative monoliths in experimental music. Building new idioms and approaches on top of an orchestra of invented instruments of their own design, their music is a fertile universe of it's own, which, though it will appeal to the avant- and electro-acoustically inclined, really doesn't sound like anything else. Strings bong in contrary motion, glass rattles in expansive soundscapes, reeds whir with strange doppler effects, and it all hangs together, a cargo cult in reverse, a culture of two.This first CD documenting the group is culled from a major concert at The Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, and, in addition to their exotic orchestra of instruments, also involves TRAD, a computerized circular-panning system that allows the musicians to spin their instruments around the room in varying speeds and directions independently, which in combination with the museums complex acoustics creates some thrilling psycho-acoustic effects.
