Phantom Orchard's latest demonstrates the unique improvisational language and rapport built on decades of collaboration between downtown NY-ers Ikue Mori and Zeena Parkins.

Phantom Orchard

Phantom Orchard: Orra (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Friends and colleagues since 1988, Ikue Mori and Zeena Parkins are two of the strongest musical voices out of the downtown scene. Lynchpins of bands as diverse as DNA, Skeleton Crew, Electric Masada, Hemophiliac and Björk, their duo project Phantom Orchard is the perfect outlet for their unique and personal musical languages and their rapport is evident in each and every track. Here they create eleven compositions of unique cutting edge music with the help of some of the brightest lights in improvised music. Mystery, lyricism and electronic soundscapes from this most dynamic of all dynamic duos."-Tzadik
