Electrifying electronic free jazz/power electronics/maximalistic & over-the-top with influences ranging from Braxton to Borbetomagus,from Fripp to Frith drawing inspiration from circuit bending, sampling, laptop-jocks and noise-music & heavily influenced by the acoustic experience of its musical "alter ego", The Free Jazz Posse.

Recorded in the spring & early summer of 1999, Fractured Infinity and the electronic group responsible evolved as an extension of music being recorded throughout '98 by the Free Jazz Posse and the ongoing electric/electronic music being played by these same musicians elsewhere: Stone, Melsha & Khanna had all served time in various electronic iterations of Chris Smentkowski's free improv band, Brain Transplant and both Stone & Khanna have extensive independent experience in electronic music. Squid Choir Orkestra has recorded several Cd's and more of this music will be released in the future by Freedonia Music.
