Icasiano and Otheim are, in part, products of those contributions, pushing to create a new sonic approach to the music and group improvisation. Siphoned through the band’s collective aesthetics, the music freely crisscrosses genres resulting in a new musical sound that is thoughtful, energetic, current and original.
