Rubble 1 is a compilation featuring works by members and ensembles of the Trummerflora Collective, the group of independent music makers who have released over a dozen titles since their inception nearly four years ago. The Collective embraces the pluralistic nature of creative music as an important means of artistic expression for the individual and the community, and provides an atmosphere that nurtures the creative development of its members.
Like No Stars Please (Accretions, 2001) which showcased their various live work, Rubble 1 presents creative music that shares a common aesthetic yet represents the diversity of the artists' backgrounds and influences ranging from rock, jazz, hip-hop and electronica to noise, soundart, experimental and improvised musics.
All th' way from heavy rhythm/beats to gentle piano to deconstructionist mayhem, you will truly be taken on a trip 'round th' world for about an hour...If you're looking for great experimental variety & something that isn't boring, this comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

When this many people get together to share ideas, the result is generally either a mess or truly exciting. Trummerflora is more than exciting. There's so much going on here that I can't begin to describe much of any of it. But that's okay. The revolutionary nature of the sounds on this disc speak amply for themselves.
