The Flying Luttenbachers were an instrumental unit led by multi-instrumentalist/composer/producer Weasel Walter. The Luttenbachers have created a large body of work focusing on an agenda of musical extremity and dissonance. Over the course of the band, the personnel has shifted numerous times around the artistic leadership of Walter, each line-up revealing a different part of the Flying Luttenbachers' aesthetic. The music has run a gamut from intense, all-acoustic free improvisation, to complex, modernistic rock composition; pure electronic noise to primitive punk-inspired jazz. The music defies idiomatic cliché and is steadfastly abstract, choosing to work outside of pre-existing genres in order to attain an original fusion. Walter has been quoted as drawing inspiration from the fields of hardcore punk, black metal, progressive rock, free jazz, no wave, electronic noise, contemporary classical, Balinese gamelan and Noh music.

I just engineered a Long Rally session with Weasel Walter, Mary Halvorson, and Peter Evans, it's airing on May 13th on WFMU and will be posted to the FMA after it airs. Keep an ear out!
