about

The first "studio album" from the only known free improvisation ensemble in West Texas, Llano Estacado Monad Band. Over the course of several months, the band collectively created four graphic scores via a round-robin additive mail art process. Each person playing on this album touched two of the scores. In various groupings the band got together at Wind Tide in Littlefield and performed the scores, with members no longer living on the Llano recording their contributions remotely.

LEMB draws from the tradition established by the Scratch Orchestra, Nihilist Spasm Band, London Improvisers Orchestra, Daigoretsu. Flexible and mutable membership and instrumentation, splitting a difference between musical sound and noise, a ghost stutter. Collective Graphic Works is a less a milestone and more like a fragment of a spectrum. Every LEMB rehearsal and performance is recorded and can be found on the LEMB Bandcamp page.
