From its drums-bashing, cacophonous beginning to its skronky trumpet-loaded conclusion, the instant chemistry betwixt Rhys Chatham and Oneida is what makes 'What's Your Sign?' such a seamless and natural partnership: ageless vanguards of minimalism, free-improvisation and noise banding together in a holier than thou union of NYC experimental rock royalty.

From its drums-bashing, cacophonous beginning to its skronky trumpet-loaded conclusion, the instant chemistry betwixt Rhys Chatham and Oneida is what makes 'What's Your Sign?' such a seamless and natural partnership: ageless vanguards of minimalism, free-improvisation and noise banding together in a holier than thou union of NYC experimental rock royalty.

Four years after their inaugural union at Ecstatic Music Festival inside New York City's Merkin Concert Hall produced a cosmic din for the ages, two genre-obliterating renegades who've made indelible marks in the experimental music pantheon the NYC-bred, Paris-based avant-garde guitar legend and minimalist composer Rhys Chatham and long-running psychedelic free-rock juggernaut and Brooklyn institution Oneida have joined forces on their first collaborative album proper titled 'What's Your Sign?,' via Northern Spy Records.

With pedigrees carved in hall-of-fame-caliber collaboration and ever-expanding symphonic ensembles (a Chatham touchstone is A Crimson Grail (For 400 Electric Guitars) while Oneida's twelve hour long free-improvisational drone-fests is stuff of legend), it's no revelation the legendary composer and No Wave veteran and the left-field freethinking noisemakers would make for kindred spirits.
