"Where other improvisational groups revel in the abstract, Moho Collective songs give the listener a sense of place, character, and narrative."

-- Scott Regan, Open Tunings (WXXI)

SOMA

Extended Liner Notes

Perhaps part of the beauty of instrumental music is the absence of constraints that can be brought on by lyricism. The Moho Collective encourages listeners to apply their own meaning, imagery and emotion to the music. Although the following provides insight into the conception of the pieces which make up SOMA, the music can be experienced differently by all.
