The Machine That We Built/Afrocop With Bill Horist says
Come join two outstanding projects as they share the stage and create sonic mayhem!

The Machine that We Built explores an instrumental, orchestral approach to Jimi Hendrix’s music. The Machine uses Gil Evans' previous work and Miles Davis’ unfinished collaboration as launching points, investigating songs ripe for inquiry and rarely played live. Songs include "1983... (A Merman I Should Turn to Be)", "Still Raining, Still Dreaming", and "House Burning Down" from the seminal album, Electric Ladyland.

The ensemble includes Greg Campbell (vibes, percussion), Dennis Rea (guitar), James DeJoie (flute, baritone/tenor sax), Alicia DeJoie (electric violin), Bill Jones (trumpet), Olli Klomp (drums), and Ryan Berg (electric bass).

Afrocop with Bill Horist brings a mix of gospel, dance, soul, afrobeat, psychedelic, improvised, breakbeat, video game, soundscape and time-stretching music to the stage.

“One of Seattle’s best bands… [they] create a rarefied strain of psychedelic, soulful jazz that exists in that cool, sweet zone where the music of Lonnie Liston Smith, Medeski, Martin + Wood, and Spiritualized at their most abstract intersect.” - Dave Segal, The Stranger
