The Monstrous Now are (normally) a 5-piece improv band and this is their debut album. The instruments they utilise run the gammut of the history of electronic music production, from an actual VC3 (one of only 5 in Australia), analog tape loops, 8-bit sampling, fx pedals processing through to cutting edge realtime laptop digital signal processing. These are laid over a bed of acoustic drums, electric bass, guitar, sax and keyboards. Every performance is unique and on this album, 3 pieces are presented, culled from over 30 hours of live studio performances. The Monstrous Now don't stick to the regular parameters of improv, as happy making noise as they are dub. A truly expansive and inspiring collection of work.
