about

THE BASICS
Sweet Figeater Surprise is a performative three-record, sculptural box set featuring a collection of works composed and instigated by the
Commanding Pilot.

The collection is comprised of three main FIGures generated from six
distinct ensemble conFIGurations, arranged into individual discs (labeled Fig. 1, Fig. 2 & Fig. 3). Each conFIGuration features a collection of original works, or parameters set by the Commanding Pilot, that punctuate, button and launch spontaneous compositions by the ensemble. The conFIGurations are geared at creating dynamic sonic shifts in terms of aesthetic, texture, vibe and genre.
Most of the audio from Sweet Figeater Surprise is available online, of course,there are secret things only available with the physical box set.
