Artist: William Hooker
Title: Symphonie Of Flowers
William Hooker has been recognized as one of the most innovative and dynamic musicians of his generation. Having lead a variety of ensembles within the world of free jazz, experimental, and new music, Hooker has had a long list of collaborators ranging from avant-garde jazz musicians to Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo.

We are thrilled to announce the release of his newest work, Symphonie Of Flowers, where Hooker weaves three sections into an entire piece, what he calls his “symphonie.” As he says, “the piece begins and ends with the drum… my instrument. Its rhythm and variations of timbre are the stabilizing element.”
