this was our second time playing the mythic Red Rocks, the first time was/and is featured in our epic road film “Magickal Media Terrorism Tour”. This was also our first performance with Denver based percussion phenom, T.S. Anubis.... Thus the second set jamboreebop “Party and Play Perfectly Clear Elf Flamethrower” is truly outstanding for it's merciless drum antics … but before this is explored further, certain definitions need to be established just for clarity. Drumming is tricky stuff after all, and the in-built ambiguity of language also contributes to easily missing the many facets of the drum conundrum. So let us first define what is meant by “drumming”‘In this instance, what is meant is the ability of a human in the sense of body, mind and consciousness, leaving a point in time, hereafter labeled the Point of Temporal Origin (PTO), and then ‘arriving’ within a different temporal destination. In this definition, any movement in space is not considered as a key component of drumming , though it may certainly occur as a side effect.

Founding father Johannes Ayres fronts the current IAO Core and members include April Q Dawn,, m.c. Schmidt and Drew Daniels (Matmos) Kris Force (Amber Asylum). and an A.I. named Kore. Their music touches on classical, electronica, post-industrial, speed metal with a distinctly experimental/avant-garde bent; Their lyrics are in fact superb: out of such pockets light pours, conjuring spirits of an America both mysterious and obscene.
