The music is heavily influenced by varied forms of media: avante-garde performance art idealism, painter/sculptor approaches and progressive/electronic/experimental music influences; combining to create surrealistic moods within each of the pieces.
Visualism created through sound:
William Burroughs used a method of writing called the "cut-up" method. You could say we apply the same concept in the construction of our pieces. You could also say we construct in ‘stream-of-consciousness’ style. Conceptually we’re always experimenting with new ideas. Stylistically, our music is a blend of progressive & electronic influences with lots of other flavorings. The three of us are into a lot of the same music, and that brings us together at the foundation. Then the pieces become schizophrenic as our individual influences pop out.
Our approach over the years has remained the same — to allow the music to come out without much editing interference to produce a style based on the concepts present within the pieces. (we try not to limit our output or sculpt it too much in any one direction).
