Where Jeffrey Butzer's music often dwells in understated subtext, The Compartmentalizationalists serve the explicit narrative. Introspective moments like "Theme for a Tailor" and "House Made of Cake," give way to the climactic tension in songs like "Old Testament Astronaut" and "Trepanning." The imagery is cinematic, as always, but dark Spaghetti Westerns are the films that come to mind. The Compartmentalizationalists are a trio, but that makes the music more direct. 10 songs in 22 minutes. "Born without a Neck," indeed.

Jeffrey is opening this show with a solo score to Kenneth Anger's Rabbit Moon (16 mins) performed on guitar, melodica, bells, loops.
