Made to Break
Dispatch to the Sea

"Dispatch From The Sea highlights the unique interplay between Vandermark and Kurzmann. Surprisingly, their interaction is quite physical given that Kurzmann plays only on a laptop, often a confrontational one, sometimes Kurzmann even takes the subversive role of deconstructing the loose architecture of this piece and suggesting a futuristic one."
-Eyal Hareuveni, The Free Jazz Collective
