David Torn’s Nohband is a sonic voyage that defies categories and blurs boundaries, featuring three of the most recognizable names in experimental jazz with Tim Berne, and Dave King. The music has all of the David Torn trademarks: multi-layered textures, thick chords, disruptions, distortions and hypnotic loops. Torn wraps his sounds around those of his band mates, often taking apart their improvisations and reassembling them.

“Torn, with his loops and sheer psychedelic abandon, is able to create dense textures, screaming intervallic leaps and dark-hued washes of sound that are as ingenious as they are impossible to imitate.” Downbeat

“His (Torn’s) work is very spiritual, and has an ephemeral quality that I adore.” David Bowie

“Few musicians working in or around jazz over the past 30 years have developed an idiomatic signature more distinctive than Tim Berne.” New York Times
