Vox Arcana, Tim Daisy's working trio with: Fred Lonberg Holm an cello and James Falzone on clarinet:

“Daisy approaches the trio’s repertoire with the discipline of a doctoral student, influenced as much by visual art as avant-garde composers. He’s demonstrated a voracious appetite, devouring the work of minimalist guru Terry Riley and AACM heavyweight Anthony Braxton but also nodding to Robert Rauschenberg, whose multimedia dissections inform Daisy’s musical mobiles.” -Areif Sless Kitain “Time Out Chicago”

“Daisy has a delightful knack for swinging and decorating at the same time, so that no matter how dense and aggressive his playing becomes, there’s a resting spot somewhere in the groove.” Bill Meyer - Signal To Noise
