Its members include: Richard Parry (bass), Sarah Neufeld (violin), Pietro Amato (french horn), Kaveh Nabatian (trumpet), Stefan Schneider (drums & percussion). Sarah Neufeld and Richard Parry are also full-time members of Arcade Fire.


Pretty stunning instrumental free jazz/post-rock/neo-classical much more than an Arcade Fire side-project. Some obvious influences : Talk Talk, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Aphex Twin, Rachel's ... but ultimately, it sounds like nothing else.
