    Corpse of Discovery

CORPSE OF DISCOVERY is a music collective founded in 2009 by Bryan Zimmerman in Brooklyn and Queens. This 6-track, 26-minute record was released on limited-edition vinyl in 2010 by New York-based Transmission Arts organization Wave Farm. The music has been described as "exquisite-corpse-structured improvisations," "modular family band sessions," and "a communal door-to-door adventure collage jam." A diverse list of collaborators improvise and revise to a loose script consisting of hand-cut audio loops by Zimmerman. The record also includes a cell-phoned organ coda from his mother,  Jolene Zimmerman.  Engineered and co-produced by Jason Loewenstein (Sebadoh,Circle of Buzzards), via the JakeRock Mobile Recording Unit. Lowenstein also plays drums, bass, and guitar on several songs.
