descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Chimeric Stoned Horn is the official follow-up to Mazurek's Vortice of the Faun cassette Astral Spirits released back in 2015. Chimeric Stoned Horn is also released in conjunction with Mazurek's art opening "Constellation Scores" at URDLA in France, September 16-18.

This is Mazurek's first recording featuring Piccolo Trumpet alongside electronics, percussion and voice. It picks up where Vortice left off, but goes much deeper and in more nuanced ways throughout the 40 minute run time.

The artwork for both the CD and Cassette versions feature 3 of the 4 "Chimeric Stoned Horn" 3D lithographs that Mazurek created for URDLA and comes with a pair of 3D glasses!"-Astral Spirits
