Australian vocalist/musician Sophia Brous, co-founder and bandleader of the multi-headed musical supergroup EXO-TECH, joins Clocktower in the studio in advance of a hypnotic EXO-TECH show-in-the-round at Pioneer Works, September 4, 2016, featuring an impressive ensemble of musical luminaries from New York and beyond.

EXO-TECH explores the intersections between collective improvisation and pop song composition, influenced as much by modern pop and R&B as it is by free jazz, avant garde improvisation, and film music. The Pioneer Works ensemble is comprised of Kimbra, Sophia Brous, Yuka Honda (Cibo Matto), Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, Arcade Fire), Mauro Refosco (Atoms for Peace, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Pete Drungle, Danny Meyer (Chairlift, Julia Holter), Miho Hatori (Cibo Matto, New Optimism), Doug Wieselman (Antony & the Johnsons, Laurie Anderson), Jeremy Gustin (Star Rover, Delicate Steve), Spencer Zahn, Benjamin Lazar Davis (Cuddle Magic, Okkervil River), and Cleek Schrey.

Special guests include Sean Ono Lennon, Colin Stetson (Bon Iver, Arcade Fire), Caroline Polachek, Jim White (Dirty Three/ Xylouris White), Sarah Neufeld (Arcade Fire), Dave Harrington (Darkside, Dave Harrington Group). Caroline Polachek will be performing a DJ set.
