Richmond Avant Improv Collective

The latest release by RAIC is called “Multiplicity” and is real interesting. The band switches from free jazz to black metal to noise rock  to god knows what else. Yet each track is good on its own, the collective knows what they are doing.

RAIC is Samuel Goff, Abdul Hakim Bilal, Erik Schroeder, Zoe Olivia Kinney and Laura Marina. The goal by the collective, wich constantly features guest members, is to expand musically through improvs that don’t fit other ensembles.
The only rule that RAIC has is that one of the core members has to be performing in the ensemble.
Favorite track: Brugmansia, Leaves continue to Fall
