The Ghosts Project
Based around sizzling gypsy violin and pounding drums, The Ghosts Project is Paul Mercer / Violin & Davis Petterson / percussion. An improvised music ensemble featuring a revolving lineup of special and unique musical guests, and is a favorite of dance troupes everywhere.
Duet for Theremin and Lap Steel is Scott Burland (theremin) and Frank Schultz (steel). Together they create a combination of sounds from two non-fixed-pitch instruments and laptops in an improv environment with a disregard for traditional styles, creating rich textures, swooning collages, and hypnotic pulses.
"These sounds are the product of two minds sharing a single headspace and letting the music drive...
Here, they collide with the cerebellum in a graceful, slow-motion crash." Chad Radford, Creative Loafing Atlanta
"The CD is the sound of two untethered astronauts with a strange and elegant sonic choreography.
...some of the most wonderfully abstract music I’ve heard this year." Ernie Paik, Chattanooga Pulse
“…like smokestack lightning rolling through the sub-conscious…” Dave Keifer
"...a great example of contemporary sound art." Thomas Gaudynski, The Gaudynski Report
