about

This is a collection of recordings from fall 2016 recorded live at the Sound Retreat in Chester, Connecticut and at Homage Gallery and Coffee Lounge, also in Chester. All tracks were composed by The Grays. Most of this new material is inspired by an acoustic-percussive arrangement we've been experimenting with. In addition to drum kit, Tracey Kroll is playing kalimba (amplified thumb piano) and Hans Lohse is playing Usi drum (a wooden zlyophone). The pieces coming out of this have unusual tonalities. Harmonically they are rooted in just one or two chords, and the tonalities are lydian, phrygian, dorian with microtonal inflections.
