The following event took place during the original
Miles To Oz weekend.
Spontaneity and destiny collided when
Sidd, the low
temperature physicist, and the guys from
Glistening Trail Records
set out to meet their friends,
The group had found each other over the Internet at
RomBox.Com. It would be their first
meeting. Sidd and the gang were interested in finding out how
Stop That Noise fits into RomBox and
Philadelphia Spirit Experiment. It would be an
experiment in the chaotic systems of spontaneity
And, this is what happened....

Pre & Post Show Notes
Sidd and the gang had a lot of fun with
Dry-ice, as well as,
other multimedia experiments. However, the biggest
surprise was how Stop That Noise fit into the
theory experiment, "Man can Improvise
to Obtain a Balance
Between Spontaneity and Destiny."
Kyle exhibited an amazing ability to create balance
in music by combining screaming bass lines, and
at the same time, he was able to create a counter
balance with screaming lead vocals. Don't try it
at home... it could be dangerous.
Steve, on the other hand, is one of the best
drummers the world has ever seen. Not only that,
but he plays in multi-bands. In fact, that same
night he played with the improvisional band Cross
Town Traffic. Throughout the night he demonstrated
his ability to play anything, with anybody, at
anytime without missing a beat.
I was so impressed that I asked Steve and another
great improvisor involved in the project,
C. Moore Teetes, to write a piece -
