Notes...
A big "thank you" to all the musicians and friends at Quadelectronic, the most unique and creative of all live events we've had the privilege to be involved in. Still going strong, and with ever more talent daring to risk total "free improv" the Quad way! When you've heard the music, watch the videos via YouTube. You never know, they may not be around forever. Also visit the Quadelectronic Documents page for the complete recorded archives.
