In late winter of 2019, musicians Derek Grant, Josh Machniak, Erik Maluchnik and Sean Madigan Hoen gathered for two days in a Michigan basement with the intention of recording as much improvised music as they could manage. Erik, a recording engineer by trade, set up several microphones around the room, and with no particular sound in mind the group promptly tracked close to ten hours of material before departing. The recordings went unlistened to until early winter of 2019, when Sean began mixing and editing various sections at random, adding vocals/lyrics with same improvisatory spirit. By February 2020, he’d finalized about fifty minutes worth of music. SPIROCHETE SESSION VOL. 1 documents this first batch of material culled from the project.
