Tiny Music is an acoustic ensemble carefully constructing compositions utilizing a wide range of instrumentation and objects (including: broken glass, clarinet, popsicle sticks, overtone flute, spring motor, trombone, altered harmonica, etc., etc.). They also make mechanical (robot) devices that create unique sounds which are incorporated, if not spotlighted in certain pieces (reminiscent of Luigi Russolo's "Intonarumori").
There is a certain old timey charm to Tiny Music,
as their live performances find them amongst the trees, down by the river, or other impromptu locations. This cassette marks the debut release by this Chicago quintet, and a fantastic endeavor it is. Limited to 100 hand numbered copies.
