63CD - Orchestra Of The Upper Atmosphere - θ3
Shipping MAY 2017
Discus Music is proud to present Theta Three, the third release by the improvising rock group Orchestra Of The Upper Atmosphere, a 7 piece outfit referencing the music of Terry Riley, prog and Krautrock explorations with a contemporary electronic edge.
This third double CD showcases the core band at their best- innovative improvisation, haunting hypnotic grooves and blasts of sheer exuberance.It has been simmering since 2015, when bass and drums laid down inspiring rhythms and a day's recorded improvisations in the studio led to a collection of infinite complexity and powerful pieces.
This time round the band have been augmented by strings and trombone and is a project on a big scale with a more defined band feel.The 20 tracks are an enticing mixture of improvisations and composed pieces each complete in themselves but combining to make an astounding whole. Enjoy...
