Topology’s Ten Hands evolved over an extended period in the quintet’s rehearsal room. Recording their collective improvisations, they each went away to listen back for the best moments, writing them out in staff notation. These fragments would be the basis of the next jam session, also recorded and also mined for new ideas. This process went on repeatedly, and each member of the band would add their own development and transition ideas until a single, unified, continuous one-hour piece emerged – strong, honed, individual voices intermingled into one sinewy whole, rich in musical thought and totally engaging. The result is a musical mystery tour, taking listeners through an emotional landscape of symphonic proportions. Ten hands, five minds working together as one.
