The music of Brooklyn’s Thomas Kozumplik and Lorne Watson from Loop 2.4.3 utilizes a variety of percussive instruments, from marimba and steel drum to tom-toms, bongos and snares, temple bowls and wood blocks, opera gongs and electronics. On their brilliant new album, Zodiac Dust, the band uses two new instruments, the eLog and Rose Echo, and employs cello, violin, and piano.
