“With his eerie voice and giant sax, this Arcade Fire and Bon Iver collaborator makes head-spinning, innovative music “ The Guardian

Colin Stetson has spent extensive years honing his skills as a horn player, predominantly with bass and alto sax. By perfecting the technique of circular breathing he literally ties himself to the grizzly beast and as the performer and instrument grapple together in a hypnotic whirl they almost blur into one. Aside from having worked with artists such as Tom Waits, TV on the Radio, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson, the enigmatic composer in his own right produces physical, strenuous music which courses and caterwauls through a reminiscence of dark jazz, post-rock and industrial electronica.
