Zap! is the collaboration between the multi-faceted reeds of Randy McKean and the live electro-acoustic manipulations of David Dvorin. Using the framework of improvisation, contemporary jazz and art music, their original pieces contain echoes of such diverse sources as vintage science-fiction, Edison cylinder recordings, hillbilly swing, bird-song, obsolete sounds, and comic books.
