Bassist Jason Ajemian has developed a high profile in the improvised music scene over the years, performing with Rob Mazurek's Mandarin Movie, Exploding Star Orchestra, and Chicago Underground Trio; Ken Vandermark's Crisis Ensemble; and currently with Marc Ribot's new group Sun Ship. Ajemian's curiosity has ranged far and wide - he's just as comfortable in the hushed, folksy setting of Born Heller, his duo with Josephine Foster, as he is in the breath-processed arrangements of his large ensemble Who Cares How Long You Sink. Given such a variety of musical interests, a detour like "From Beyond," Ajemian's backward version of Black Sabbath's "Into the Void" for chamber ensemble, begins to seem like an obvious stop on his journey from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains to Chicago and his current home in New York City.
