“Tashi Dorji (electric guitar) and Tyler Damon (drums/percussion) have developed a musical language that is not only shaped by original forms as free jazz, metal, rock, and Buddhist monastic music. Their sound merges passion and emotions of literature, art, cultural movements, politics — flashes of ecstatic intensity, blurred timbral lines, fractal repetition, noir-ish, cinematic mystery and inclinations toward free play hint that the two are pleased to follow a winding path to destinations yet unknown. Recorded by Dave Zuchowski on March 25th, 2018, as part of Elastic Arts’ 2018, Chicago. Artwork by Aaron Turner. Mixed by John Dawson; Mastered by Martin Siewert. In 2017 the duo released an album for Trost with Danish saxophone player Mette Rasmussen (TROST 167CD).
“Together, the combination of Dorji’s high-end metallic power-tool skree and Damon’s manic-but-earthy hippie clomping are a perfect pairing. Each has a musical spoon in the other guy’s soup to begin with, resulting in a collaboration that seems almost brotherly. […] I’d say expect great things, but they’re already happening.” –The Free Jazz Collective”-Forced Exposure
