Recording Notes
Tom Djll has long been developing his idiosyncratic language for trumpet—a vocabulary expanded by the use of modular synthesizers. Serge Works collects compositions and improvisations recorded between 1983 and 1988, relatively early in the development of his improvisational work. Included in the liner notes is an extensive interview between Djll and Bay Area improviser Aaron Oppenheim on Djll’s techniques and history.
Editorial Reviews

Serge Works provides an informative survey of his pioneering achievements, making for highly engaging listening experiences that deserve multiple encounters. Stephen Smoliar, The Rehearsal Studio, August 2018

Djll’s Serge Works begins with Tombo (1987), a piece for trumpet, voice, and Serge Modular Synthesizer whose opening seems to depict a crazy, noisy monster hell bent on destruction. Jason Victor Serinus, Stereophile, September 2018
