Description:
Ξ>   Matter or antimatter, everything is out of proportion with Rob Mazurek's music; it is larger than nature, it has no other choice but to be so, to tell the truth. Must everything really be colossal and euphoric? The answer is yes: everything must be colossal, and euphoric….
Ξ>   …Wasn't the Exploding Star Orchestra created in 2005 in order to gather shattered pieces of a single celestial and musical body, Chicago, its satellites here present, the inhabitants of multi–layered formations successively assembled by Rob Mazurek, the inhabitants of the Chicago Underground, of Isotope 217, of Mandarin Movie, of Sound Is Quintet, of Starlicker, of the Pulsar Quartet, of the Skull Sessions? Ξ>   To gather them again on May 8th and 9th 2009 at São Paulo's Vila Mariana, on the satellite and with the inhabitants of the São Paulo Underground, and with a distant inhabitant of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, a grandmaster of gravitational fields.
