ii. Lament 04:59
iii. Hymn 03:27


Drawing on their shared influences rooted in jazz, electronic, and experimental new music, Ends Meat Catastrophe Jazz Ensemble composes and improvises new works centered on ritual, deep listening, and liberation.

Strange Moon is a musical prayer to the moon goddess from Japanese folklore, inspired by the sight of the moon blocked out by the haze of wildfires.
