Table of the Elements: Free/Not Free
Rhys Chatham's Guitar Trio sparked an electric guitar revolution with three guitars and a single chord. The 2008 Table of the Elements release Guitar Trio is My Life! is celebrated here with a much larger ensemble, the Lords of Tinnitus, anchored by drummer Jonathan Kane and accompanied by images by artist Robert Longo. The ensemble includes Ernie Brooks, Robert Longo, Jonathan Kane, Robert Poss, Bill Brovold, Zach Layton, Adam Wills, and Colin Langenus.
Text of Light (William Hooker, Alan Licht & Nels Cline) was initially formed to perform with American avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage's film The Text of Light.

The group has headlined both film and music festivals, and has toured European and USA club and cinema venues.

New York-based singer-songwriter Peg Simone employs the slide to bone-chilling effect, fracturing raucous rock choruses and sepia-toned ballads into ghost images with its off-tuned eeriness & pure blues tones stuttering across hectic post-punk rhythms. Her recent release is Secrets From The Storm (Table of the Elements, 2010).
