The creative spirit provides energy and a sense of forward motion in a time of perceived stasis. During the last eighteen months, these sonic innovators have been locked in their labs like Tony Stark in Iron Man. What better time than lockdown to play with new sounds? Musicians exchanged files online, multi-tracked home recordings and occasionally escaped to jam in the great outdoors. This fall, they will present their findings: new ideas, approaches and sounds.
