Formed in late 2007, DR. MiNT is dedicated to the process of spontaneous composition- intuitive group improvisation focused on fluid and cohesive musical construction. Visions and Nightmares and Apocalytptica are two such improvisations, and have been indexed for release and radio consideration. These were recorded consecutively on August 26, 2007, and are uncut, unedited, and unabridged.
