born out of my love of groove, sonic soundscapes, and improvising.
an electronic musician with whom I've worked with a bit in
the past in more composed situations. I thought that it would
be great to play with him in a completely improvised situation,
especially since he is a great improviser. JHNO comes from
a jazz piano background, and practically gets inside his computer
to manipulate and rebuild its brain day-in and night-out.
During their short lived life, T.
J. Kirk, nursing the engorged breast
of Warner Bros. and in collaboration with legendary producer Lee
Townsend, made two highly regarded CDs that today fetch a tidy
sum on eBay. The second of these two, 1995's "If
Four Was One", was nominated for a Grammy. In addition, recordings
of their incendiary live shows became widely circulated in collector's
circles and over the internet. This live performance CD from 1997
represents the band's attempt to get a piece of the action.
