New Freedom Sounds is a remotely assembled supergroup including a number of DC DIY mainstays, lately dispersed along the East Coast.

Eight Freedoms gathers the first completed works in an ongoing series composed by Zach Barocas. Initially devised from beats and recurring vocal harmonies, these pieces grow according to their own perceived need, inspired along the way by the contributions and interpretations of New Freedom Sound’s collaborators.

By turns reminiscent of jazz, incantation, popular song, free music, new classical, and Barocas’s own unique approach to rhythmic gravity and device, these Freedoms strive for ecstatic formulation, spontaneity, exuberance, beauty, and evolution.

Mark Cisneros has appeared with Chain and the Gang, Deathfix, Hammered Hulls, The Medications, and others. Zach Barocas and J. Robbins are members of Jawbox. Gordon Withers is a veteran punk cellist based in DC.
