Ellen Band's signature style is to attentively build swirling layers of sonorous, textural, tone/noise clusters by mixing and processing lengthy samples from her field recordings of real-world sounds. For this performance, Jeremy Flower utilizes a very small library of samples created on a modular synthesizer as well as real-time synthesis to become a bubbling aural haze.
