Biography

Proudly carrying on the grand tradition of live improvisation in utter chaos, Jam for the Dead began as the live recordings from the annual Dark World All Hallow Eve’s party. Samhain 1998, Samhain 1999, Samhain 2002, Samhain 2004, and Samhain 2005 are recordings from these sessions. But Jam for the Dead sessions have begun showing up at all times of year with DIE for my B-DAY and The Ice Chronicles showcasing the playful sides of Dark World artists. For as many years as Dark World has sponsored and promoted free-style musical jam sessions by our artists we still get the same questions. What’s it all about? Why do you do this?.

Dark World has long been noted as a unique independent music industry entity. Surviving for over a decade, we’ve created tremendous artist and fan loyalty due to our continued commitment to artistic endeavors over commercial success. With our primary focus on the health and happiness of our artists, we recognised long ago that sometimes musicians just need to let loose in the studio. To that end, we created and sponsored our jam sessions.

Rooted in a firm belief that music is created from sound rather than traditional restrictive recordings, Dark World used the jazz element of improvisation (the ability to create new music spontaneously) as a basis for these sessions. Leaving our artists unrestricted as to what they would do and opening the studio to friends and guests of our artists brought non-mainstream genre influences such as noise, experimental, and avant-garde to the jams. Working with syncopation and electronic equipment, our artists managed to create their own fusion style. The unedited, uncut recordings were released as limited runs under the names ‘Jam for the Dead’ and ‘IMPs’.
