Tone Road Ramblers
Eric has been a member of Tone Road Ramblers since 1989. Most recently, the group performed at Roulette in Brooklyn, New York in November, 2014. TRR's work is the result of an intensive annual two-week collective residence. Musical materials are inclusive and divese: from extended techniques, the use of toys and unusual sound sources, microtonality, from diverse traditions. Jazz, world music, and western avant-garde are the points of departure.
