"Kevin Moreau, Charlie Schneeweis and John Levin started the Ill Wind Ensemble in 1993. The original band had a shifting line up that included many of the wayward musicians that hung out at McNeils here in Brattleboro VT. By 1994 they had settled down to a quartet, with percussionist Eric Boyer, that would perform together for another seven years. This recording from 1995 documents that quartet as they began to hone their free improvisations into a collective musical language. Using instruments from western, world, and home-made traditions, as well as toys and other found objects, and guided by a shared passion for droning modes, the unpredictable tunings of folk winds and reeds, and careful listening, the group, as Kevin liked to put it, "peeled the paint off the walls" of his Wilder Building studio with sounds like the ones captured on this CD. Originally produced in home-duplicated cassette format and sold only at concerts in a proto-internet and pre-downloadable world, this Spirit of Orr release captures a lost moment in time. Limited to 100 hand assembled copies." - Spirit Of Orr.
