JOEL TAYLOR is a composer/improvisor who makes extensive use of shakuhachi and suling (Indonesian bamboo fipple flutes) in his work, as well as analog synthesizers, computers and misc. small percussion and wind instruments. The trio Nyquist features Joel Taylor on shakuhachi, suling and electronics, Scott Smallwood on steel pan and electronics and Seth Cluett on electric bass and electronics. All of these players make liberal use of extended instrumental technique and electronic processing in their explorations.
