The Too Much Too Soon Orchestra was founded by Dror Feiler during the mid eighties. The idea was to form a group that extended the bounds of improvised music, both in method and aesthetics. One of the characteristic elements is the use of non-musical instruments such as power tools. The orchestra has appeared in many different line-ups. The ultimate and most powerful version of the T.M.T.S.O. has been the quintet with Tommy Björk, Dror Feiler, Raymond King, Mats Lindström and Sören Runolf. This CD contains three live recordings with this group, on one track reinforced with Paul Pignon on clarinets.
