-via smit: Well, "that thing over there" seems to be some sort of improvisational/electronica thingy.  It is comprised of pseudo guitars in altered states along with a myriad of electronic percussion gizmo's, and when successful in its goal of spontaneous composition, sometimes within a world beat context, or not, one would be hard pressed to know who is doing what, even when one is standing right in front of them, which of course would put the listener somewhere over there, as well.  meltzer: ++0+ is like eating a tofu dog: not much taste but good for you. arlington: ++O+ is NOT
a pancake mix nor is it shell-fish despite the fact that some of us are crabby.  What ++O+ is to me is an outlet for three very talented musicians and myself to create comprovisions (composition + improvisation + vision? )  that could not be realized elsewhere.  Hopefully someday we will find a home for said comprovisions and live happily ever after. leaman: it will breathe as it is that: used to imply mere contradistinction; used to indicate a person, thing, idea, state, event, time, remark, etc., as pointed out or present, mentioned before, supposed to be understood, or by way of emphasis; used elliptically to introduce an exclamation expressing desire, a wish, surprise, indignation, or other strong feeling; thing: some entity, object, or creature that is not or cannot be specifically designated or precisely described; a material object without life or consciousness; an inanimate object; a living being or creature; a fact, circumstance, or state of affairs; a peculiar attitude or feeling, either positive or negative, toward something; something signified or represented, as distinguished from a word, symbol, or idea representing it; anything that is or may become an object of thought: an action, deed, event, or performance.  over: so as to rest on or cover; on or upon, so as to cause an apparent change in one's mood, attitude; here and there on or in; about; above and to the other side of; through all parts of; all through; from one side to the other of; to the other side of; reaching higher than, so as to submerge; throughout the duration of; in excess of; in preference to; in repetition or succession; until after the end of; while engaged in or occupied with; so as to displace from an upright position; across or beyond the edge or rim; throughout or beyond a period of time; a shot that strikes or bursts beyond the target. there: at that point in an action, speech; used by way of calling attention to something or someone; that state or condition; into or to that place. in or at that place where you are.
