Box - Studio 1

"A supergroup collaborative project from the mighty Rune Grammofon, Box was conceived by writer and filmmaker Philip Mullarkey as an interdisciplinary art and film project. The musicians he recruited are some of improv's leading lights from across the globe, including Scorch Trio guitarist Raoul Bjorkenheim, John Zorn and Fantomas bass player Trevor Dunn, Supersilent/Humcrush synthesizer maestro Stale Storlokken and one-time Frank Zappa collaborator Morten Agren on drums. With that sort of improvisational royalty on board this was always bound to be a pretty full-on listening experience, and sure enough the quartet blast through pan-generic free music with an exhausting virtuosity and gusto."
