Roomful of Teeth
From

Hear sample-heavy music with a dose of wry humor, in music from Nick Zammuto & Paul de Jong, as The Books. Listen to their sound collage of acoustic sound and found voices, along with Zammuto in collaboration with Jason Treuting of So Percussion. Also, listen to related music from Roomful of Teeth, and the NOW Ensemble, recorded at a recent New Sounds Live concert, and lots more.  

Listen to “Group Autogenics” from The Way Out (2010) by The Books which includes sounds and voices from sources like weight loss and self-help tapes as well as profound, weird snippets of a soothing and sincere nature. Then, hear chopped and spliced music from a New Sounds Live concert where Youtube footage of a lesson in playing autoharp forms the basis of a quirky work by Nick Zammuto and Jason Treuting. Also, listen to music from the vocal octet Roomful of Teeth, from their latest studio record, Render. Plus, there’s more music from NOW Ensemble and their guitarist/composer Mark Dancigers, and more.
