Listen to “Zodiac Dust”: MP3

The music of Brooklyn’s Thomas Kozumplik and Lorne Watson employs a gamut of percussion instruments, from marimba and steel drum to tom-toms, bongos and snares, temple bowls and wood blocks, opera gongs and electronics. The group introduces two new instruments, the eLog and Rose Echo, and utilizes cello, violin, piano, and voice, along with their standard barrage of percussion.

As active figures in a cross-world of musical genres, they have performed with Clogs, The Books, Willie McBlind (Jon Catler), Evan Ziporyn, Sufjan Stevens, Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond / The Decemberists), Belle Orchestre, Newband, their late mentor Robert Hohner, and as soloists with the Brooklyn Philharmonic at the BAM Opera House.
