Jack Wright’s Roughhousing
Musical roughhousing is what this group does. You might think this is pure dissonance until you realize it's all synchronized close listening to each other, which comes from so many hours of playing together.

Syrnx
syrnx is degenerate drum elongation.
sound inside sound, shifting awareness between speeds.
ritualised display turned to the uses of each time period,
interregnum made to each order
