Tim Motzer
guitars, synth guitar, bass, guitarloops
Dan Sears

The first sessions were largely group improvisations yielding two wildly divergent CDs. The lush ambience of the "chill side" is a kind of "Peter Gabriel's Passion meets ECM". On the "ill side": dark and menacing, an ill-fated futureworld of ambient punk funk abstraktions ... "tortoise meets tabla beat science".
