Seattle-based sound artist and Dragon's Eye Recordings label owner Yann Novak documents the emotional impact of the world around him by recording it and then uses digital processing to hone in on the feelings of time and place that field recordings can evoke.

Mostly Other People Do The Killing

Mostly Other People Do the Killing is a quartet founded on the idea that not only is Jazz still alive and vibrant, but it can and should be fun, engaging and thoroughly contemporary. Rather than settling into one style or historical period, MOPDTK fuses the entire spectrum of Jazz and the various forms of improvised music it has spawned into a single, seamless melange of Uber-Jass. Each of the four members of MOPDTK is a product of the institutional Jazz Education system with additional influences immediately recognizable.
