endolymph is the fluid contained in the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear, fluid waves in the endolymph of the cochlear duct stimulate the receptor cells, which in turn translate their movement into nerve impulses that the brain perceives as sound.
Currently only in conceptual form endolymph is a brand new low frequency free improv trio for double bass, euphonium and sine waves consisting of electronic sound artist Andrew Page (raxil4) and members of the free jazz ensemble ‘the Apocalypse Jazz Unit’: Hywel Jones (euphonium) and Jordan Muscatello (double bass). Although they have collaborated before in various combinations, this will only be their third performance as a trio concluding a brief London tour.
