This music draws elements from the electronically produced precision of a drum machine, to the sounds of quirky lopsided carnival rides and is composed for the timeless arrangement of a piano trio yet is written and performed with personalized programmed sounds and effects. The acoustic bass and drum-set are utilized in ways quite characteristic to that of their role in a traditional jazz trio, but extreme attention is given to exploring the sounds, timbres, range, and personality of the instruments. The songwriting also pays homage to its roots of traditional ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œAmerican jazzÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œ heritage; structurally: having themes and improvised variations, (heads and solos) as well as a harmonically: ranging between definite chord changes, modal, and atonal. Also as in the standard practice of ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œtraditional jazzÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â, Hips DonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t Lie improvise in the style of popular music of the day. They often donÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œswingÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â their eighth-notes and instead play in rhythmic feels more closely related to rap, dub, and afro-beat music. Davu Seru and Pete Henning bring in the drums.
