      As a band noted for not only their progressive rock mindscapes as well as
      their love of old-school ambient music, the members of Djam Karet are no
      stranger to the quieter side of the spectrum. As a band, they've released
      two albums worth of this type of material (1991's Suspension & Displacement
      and 1994's Collaborator). In more recent years, they've used technology to
      weave in and out of many of their songs. Two of the founders of Djam Karet -
      Chuck Oken, Jr. and Gayle Ellett - decided it was time to take the
      electronic experimentation a place they've never taken it before.
      Referencing a track on DK's 2003 album "A Night For Baku" (and the title a
      nod to Genesis track of the same name on their legendary 1974 "The Lamb Lies
      Down On Broadway" album), Ukab Maerd, as the band states on the liner notes
      , "...makes mind music that blends both modern styles and traditional
      European Electronic and Progressive music from the 1970's and 1980's."
      Joining the band in that crusade is Heldon founder Richard Pinhas, who adds
      guitar loops on three of the four tracks that make up the album. What to
      expect, then? It's an album that needs more than one listen to sink in (as
      with most of the Oken/Ellett material), but each listen allows you to dig
      deeper into the album to find what you might not have heard with the first
      few listens. That was intended, says Oken. "Gayle and I created this
      material much in the spirit that Tangerine Dream created their material in
      the 1970's; upon first listen one or two things might get you, but repeated
      listens allows you to really hear the layers that make up the whole." Not
      for the faint of heart, The Waiting Room is indeed an act of djam karet at
      its most complex. Please join us on Tuesday night (November 9th) at 8pm as
      we world premiere the debut release by Ukab Maerd, entitled The Waiting
      Room.
