Ben Miller is no stranger to the world of outreaching and experimental music, as can been from his art-punk roots in "Destroy All Monsters" to his rich studies of tonal expression in The Push-Pull Quartet and The Sensorium Saxophone Orchestra. This collection of rare live performances and radio broadcasts captures Ben's use of multi-phonic guitar with treatment during the last decade.
At once atmospheric, the sounds and timbre manipulations that Ben is able to create can quickly twist and turn into shards of jagged fury. These recordings resonant with the history created by Keith Rowe, John Cage, and Glen Branca; fused together with his own virtuosity and touch.
