NEW YORK ALL-STAR COLLECTIVE
“EXO-TECH is fast emerging as a new paradigm for pop innovation.” – Village Voice
EXO-TECH is a New York collective of musicians and improvisers formed by Sophia Brous with NZ pop singer Kimbra. Exploring intersections between collective improvisation and energetic song-form composition, the group traverses fields between Talking Heads, Can, The Knife and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, as much influenced by modern pop and RnB as by free jazz, avant-garde improvisation and film music. Features an ensemble of some of New York and beyond’s most respected music luminaries.
