Vincent Martagex Awesome, one of the bests band in my collection (not only this one). I follow Spurance since Mr Bungle, this guy is really a great "proteiform" composer guitarist and producer Favorite track: Saptarshi.

Triakel Because this is one of the best instrumentals I've heard in years. I dance in place every time it comes up in my home or car queue. Really, SC3 is a find. A wonderful band.
Favorite track: Saptarshi.

MᴀʀsCᴀᴛ Secret Chiefs 3, like all the best bands, works on a higher plane of music. To listen to Trey Spruance's stellar band is to hear the work of a master, a philosopher, an intellectual, a genius. This single, their debut and only release in BandCamp, features some of the most complex arrangements from one of the most unique music projects ever created. Favorite track: Radar (The Day the Earth Stood Still).

about

TRACK A: Ishraqiyun "Saptarshi"
In order to face East, one must know how to locate North. On this song, Ishraqiyun nails a facet of their septenary logic to the celestial pole, throwing diatonic sparks into the Cosmos.

TRACK B: FORMS "Radar"
An unassuming but brilliant piece by Bernard Herrmann was hidden in the background during the 1951 film The Day the Earth Stood Still. Originally just piano, vibes and timpani, "Radar" now gets exploded into an uncalled-for over-exposure, via the world's only fully organic, wood & spirit mechanized orchestra, FORMS.
