This oddly named instrumental project is the brainchild of Bruce White, a San Francisco-based multi-instrumentalist who called on more than a dozen other musicians to help him perform the eight bizarre yet compelling tracks on Kaloomith. Taking influences from techno/trance ("Gravity"), jazz (the title track) and progressive rock ("The Source"), White layers his music with a variety of synthesizer techniques. He even uses a didgeridoo on the aptly titled "Soft and Sharp," while opening track "Praxis" boasts numerous aural textures. White also wrote, recorded and produced all of this material.
Kaloomith is a palatable, well-paced and diverse record that - at eight tracks and 43 minutes - doesn't wear out its welcome.
