Un monton, torero is made up of Ivan Liptak, Bryan Counter and Lucas Ospina. For Waywords and Meansigns, they are joined by Charlie Driker-Ohren and Walker Storz. All are students at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, studying music, performance, pedagogy, writing, film, philosophy and psychoanalysis. This recording emerged out of a collective improvisation between drums, cello, guitar, vocal performance, incidental instruments, objects, and sound, and was made in a single take.
Un monton, torero contributed to the first edition of Waywords and Meansigns, recording Book I Chapter 4, “The Humphriad III – His Demise and Resurrection”.
