The music is Experiential meaning “are you experienced?” and its music that is played through feeling and through expressing an intense focus on the totality of the sound.
With 6 musicians contributing to the single reel take the sound is very cohesive and balanced.

The beginning and the end point of a song can land anywhere, its unpredictable and to fully absorb it it must be lived note to note beat to beat.
