Medeski Martin & Wood Launch The Radiolarian Series

(PR) Medeski Martin & Wood have never been your typical band. Creativity has led their career and their music always stays unique. Now, the restlessly inventive improvising trio Medeski Martin & Wood are set to embark on an ingenious new experiment dubbed The Radiolarian Series.

The Radiolarian Series - named after a type of single-celled organism with dazzlingly intricate exoskeletons - is designed to subvert the age-old music industry cycle of write/record/tour. The trio, consisting of keyboardist John Medeski, drummer Billy Martin, and bassist Chris Wood, will convene for brief writing retreats, perform only that new material on tour, record the material immediately after getting off the road, and release it as an album on their own Indirecto label.

The process will be repeated three times, resulting in three albums - the first of which, Radiolarians I, will be in stores on September 30th.

Don't miss Medeski Martin & Wood as they get back on the road in support of The Radiolarians Series. This is your chance to hear all new Medeski Martin & Wood music before it is finalized and the band gets back in the studio to record for the third release of The Radiolarians Series.
