The Philadelphia-New York improvisational quartet of Global Illage and their resonant world vision is unleashed from members and collaborators of Les Nubians, Jazzheads, Elwood, Sylk130, Spoken Hand Ensemble, Ursula Rucker, Boyz II Men, Zakir Hussain, King Britt and others. Chris Cuzme: soprano + tenor sax, didgeridoo, exotic flutes, tibetan bowl Jim Hamilton: percussion batterie Tim Motzer: guitars, synth guitar, bass, guitarloops Dan Sears: trumpet, fluegelhorn, flutes, chordal pipes, and tibetan bowl The first sessions were largely group improvisations yielding two wildly divergent CDs. The lush ambience of the 'chill side' is a kind of 'Peter Gabriel's Passion meets ECM'. On the 'ill side': dark and menacing, an ill-fated futureworld of ambient punk funk abstraktions ... 'tortoise meets tabla beat science'.
