Exploding Star Orchestra We Are All From Somewhere Else
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: Thrill Jockey
We Are All From Somewhere Else, by Chicago cornetist/composer Rob Mazurek and avant-garde friends, is out-there-a suite of sonic poetry that Mazurek calls an "animated adult/children's story." Concepts include an exploding star, a stingray's journeys, electric eels chatting, destructive humans, and the sound of a star being born, literally. Instruments are juxtaposed throughout: cornets, drums, bass, flutes, synth, guitar, more brass, spoken word, and, yes, eels all factor in. The potential audio gridlock moves fluidly-even if experimental jazz isn't your thing, you can't help being pulled in by what Mazurek pulls off."
