these recordings were made at the end of 2015 in a new-to-us rehearsal space not far from the old greenhouse, which is sadly no more. presented here are versions of the pieces that have been through extensive editing & remixing ("milled") & also versions that are pretty much what we heard when first playing back the session recordings ("unmilled").

radio massacre international's sound defies categorization it is more magical than musical. the music is, first and foremost, improvisational. it is loose in structure but also searching. r.m,i. is all about generating the happy accidents that occur at the ever-changing intersection of multiple moving bodies. when two sequences converge fascinating things happen opening rhythmic and textural options that just moments before were closed to view. it is the creation and exploration of those options that dominates what r.m,i. does in its music.
