Live Improvisations

This recording is a vivid reproduction of the kind of spontaneous, unrehearsed improvisation that can be experienced at a live NEXUS concert. The music on this disc was recorded directly from the studio floor to two track digital tape. Balance and mix were monitored and controlled in real time with no overdubbing or addition of electronic sounds. Editing was limited to the extraction of complete sections from the improvisations. The only musical decision made by the individual members of NEXUS in advance of the recording was the selection of musical instruments from their extensive and varied collection.
