Ben Neill: Triptycal

Generating ambient music, a bubbling brew of dreamy electronically-created sounds, Ben Neill makes his label debut with DJ Spooky, DJ Olive and percussionist Don Yalleck. Neill stars on his invented “mutantrumpet”-a six-valve electro-acoustic instrument with six bells, a slide and interactive computer elecNeill intimately understands how to make these textured, polyrhythmic sounds. Plug in, turn on, tune up-it’s the (sound) wave of the future. – Nancy Ann Lee
