ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Killsonic is a collective of musicians operating in the Greater Los Angeles Area specializing in the creation, development and performance of new hybridized music. Comprised of a core quartet of guitar, bass, drums and woodwinds, the group names its primary musical source as the free jazz of Ornette Coleman, John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy. Similar to these artists, Killsonic also takes inspiration from contemporary art and sound. Listen closely for hints of Roni Size, Radiohead, Sonic Youth and Arab on Radar to Gyorgy Ligeti and Olivier Messiaen. Killsonic often performs with an expanded ten-member group that includes horns and vocalists. Members of the band have also performed alongside Arkestra Clandestina, Money Mark, Bobby Bradford, and Vinny Golia.
Killsonic's debut album features a guest appearance by cornet and trumpet hero Bobby Bradford, of Ornette Coleman fame. Each track experiments with different instrumentation, from a clarinet/guitar duo, to an expanded group that includes a female choir.

truly creative new jazz
In age where most jazz players seem to be happy playing the critically safe well-worn path, it's like a big breath of fresh air to hear this CD from Killsonic. This is what jazz is really about; going off and creating something of your own.

This CD is definitely off into the realm of the avant garde. But unlike a lot of attempts at avant garde jazz, these guys have the chops and creativity to keep this a continually interesting experience all he way through. A true adventure into the unknown.

Nice work, guys!
