Thollem & Gregg first met in 2005 as participants in the Olympia Experimental Music Festival. Since then, whenever Thollem has traveled through the Northwest, he and Gregg have embarked on various musical collaborations, gaining notice as members of the Naked Future with the release of Gigantomachia on ESP-Disk' in 2009.

On Rufus Distillery Ltd., they purposely refrain from their usual lengthy excursions, instead embracing brevity with 36 distinct "distillations" in less than 44 minutes. In multiplicity, unity. In each grain of sand, a world.


Recorded June 2013 at Gregg's house in Astoria, Oregon.
