This was a live recording concert at the FMRJE Factory in which the
recorded concert music was sent to Dallas, Texas experimental musician, Treasure Hunt, for him to do an in-studio performance with FMRJE concert tracks; this collaborative process has produced a recording available in digital and physical formats for distribution by Ingrown Records and Roof Garden Records.
"Far out experimental collagist Treasure Hunt returns with a collaboration alongside Dennis Warren’s Full Metal Revolutionary Jazz Ensemble. Warren’s unique approach to improvisation is informed by his understanding of resonance and quantum mechanics, reading into musics on a molecular and deeply vibrational level. The collaboration began with three live recordings from FMRJE, split up into individual players parts (trumpet, saxophone, drums, flutes, congas, bongos, electric guitar, bass, etc) which were then shipped to Treasure Hunt who took these pieces, sampled and re-sampled and combined them alongside his own peculiar brand of synthesis and production. Together, these cosmic jokers crafted Space Jam, a bewildering and tripped out free jazz album blended with modern electronics, the kind of boundary pushing that would make Sun Ra proud."
"Strap into the VR of Space Jam, where only an eclipse of the Moon Glyph will permeate a Treasure Hunt. Those who seek answers will only receive double in mystery."
-Tiny Mix Tapes
"a full on cosmic carnival, hints of Albert Ayler wired up in its shape shifting shrooming palette, the sonics dense and delirious converge, collide and ricochet forming musical side shows that weave an insidiously intricate though all the same vibrantly lively white-hot cauldron of kaleidoscopic fusion."
-The Sunday Experience
"The intense jazz improv is augumented here with masterful manipulation of sounds, breaking down separate instruments and changing their position in relation of each other, making a free jam even more free, while also adding some truly narcotic, psychedelic atmosphere with electronic manipulations and distortions."
"It’s impossible to say what planets, solar systems, or galaxies you’ve visited over the course of this album."
