descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The new DVD by Art Union Humanscape showcases two improvisations, a duo and a trio with New York percussionist Tim Barnes. Kato and Roebke are two of the fastest rising figures in the Chicago arts scene and Tim Barnes, a shadowy but pivotal member of the New York avant garde music community for the last 20 years, combine to create stark, detailed improvisations that expertly ebb and flow with quiet abandon. The DVD marks five years since the trio first convened at New York City's Joyce Soho for a weekend of performances."-Art Union Humanscape/Jason Roebke
