"Trummerflora" (Volume 1)
Trummerflora is a compilation featuring four San Diego-based experimental groups. Z.O.Voider creates soundscapes on industrial percussion and sound generators - more fully explored on his Travelogue CD. Wormhole is a percussion-based improvisational ensemble who have since released two CDs of organic trance grooves. Ultra 7 showcases their diversity with a sci-fi prog rock number, a funk groove and an acoustic improv while Dodecaphonic play a blend of jazz, funk, reggae, fusion and spoken word.
