5/31/13 Secret Chiefs 3 played a six night residency at John Zorn’s club The Stone, playing two sets a night. The first set I caught was a derainged selection of soundtrack compositions including pieces by John Carpenter and Morricone. The second set was one long undulating, surging piece, “Tesselations”, which revolved around one odd rhythm where they played modular cells based around four notes. For this set the core line-up of Trey Spruance (guitar) Timba Harris (violin) Toby Driver (bass, also of head honcho of Kayo Dot) Matt Lebofsky (keyboards) Kenneth Grohowski (drums) they were joined by incredible drumming of Ches Smith and guitarist Gyan Riley. Trey from Secret Chiefs 3, along with Jason Schimmel from Estradasphere, has been working on a remix of the Foetus track “Cosmetics” for the forthcomjng Foetus album release on Ectopic Ents
