The Hidden Barn studio is so sonically clean that as we record, we can experience being inside each others' instruments.
 
We don't rehearse or use charts. Each song has a leader, and he explores until something feels right...then he pauses and says, "Record", and off we go. The other musicians have already picked up on the key, tempo, feel, and are there, totally in support of the emerging song...as co-leaders. The leadership keeps rotating. Our approach and the room itself facilitate working in trance.
 
A lot of our playful experiments end up in the trash. Here are the best of the flowers that bloomed over a period of five years and three albums.
