Seattle-based producer/engineer/composer/musician PJ Newman explores the dizzying soundscapes he has been creating since 1982. Joined by saxophonists Jessica Lurie & Sue Oldfield (Living Daylights, The Billy Tipton Memorial Saxophone Quartet), bluegrass maverick Danny Barnes (Bad Livers), drummer Ben Smith (Heart) and Irish Fiddle superstar Martin Hayes, his self-described style of “Blind Overdubbing” and “I Ching Mixing” set the stage for lush, dynamic and surprising musical adventures reminiscent of Fred Frith, Marc Ribot & John Zorn
