Tymbal Tapes:

"This tape was recorded in the Widow Jane Mine, Rosendale, NY and the now closed Kingston cave, the day after a bomb cyclone blew through and created underground waterfalls where none had fallen before. Recorded in October 2019 and May 2021 on simple equipment. More to come from other subterranean atrocities across North America and beyond. Recorded and mixed by Bill Brovold and Jay Kreimer."

Artist bio via the label:

"Bill Brovold: original instruments, trombonium and guitar. Bill Brovold is a composer, musician, visual artist and educator. As part of the New York Downtown scene of the 1980s, he was a member of the Rhys Chatham Ensemble and Glenn Branca's Hallucination City as well as the main composer of the Detroit group Larval. When the sounds he needed could no longer be made on store-bought instruments, he started making his own, a craft he shares with children in the Brooklyn public schools and elsewhere. 

Jay Kreimer: original instruments. Jay is an improvising musician, instrument inventor, and sound artist. H performs internationally throughout North America, Europe, in China and India. He has worked with Bryan Day, the Mighty Vitamins, and Albert/Day/Kreimer. Wendy Weiss is a frequent collaborator in textile/sculpture sound installations. Kreimer is currently creating sound for a quantum physics experience with Jesse Fleming and Kees Uiterwaal. In 2013, he documented street wedding bands in Gujarat, India on a Fulbright scholarship, and returned in India in 2022 for another Fulbright to create original instruments from local materials in India.

Guest musicians:

Rob Bethea: euphonium. Bethea has performed with the likes of Rhys Chatham, Lamonte Young, and Ben Neill. Originally a trombone player, he has been incorporating the euphonium in recent years. Bethea and Brovold were bandmates in the Zen Vikings of NYC's Downtown scene of the 1980s.

Cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm is currently based in Kingston, NY. He has a long history going back to New York's "Downtown Music Scene" in the 80s and early 90s, where he played with a wide variety of like-minded musicians. Afterwards, he was based in Chicago, where he was involved with musicians such as Peter Brotzmann, Mars Williams, and the Ken Vandermark 5."
