From

Hear music by the Trimbin Band—Nick Hallett, Mikael Jorgensen, James Merle Thomas, and William Tyler—and their scores to filmic excerpts from Los Angeles-based filmmaker, folk musician, playwright and poet Fred Engelberg. A collaboration between Nashville-based guitarist/composer William Tyler, New York composer/vocalist Nick Hallett, and art historian James Merle Thomas and Wilco keyboardist Mikael Jorgensen (who are Quindar),  the Trimbin Band and its members composed new scores to accompany Engelberg’s works, everything from folk records, experimental films and feature-length documentaries of Los Angeles visual artists, 1960s counterculture, religious cults and fringe activist groups, among others.

This New Sounds Live concert was in partnership with the Ecstatic Music Festival, and recorded live at Merkin Concert Hall in March 2016.
