Just released! "Five Stories," a five mini-disc album recorded live, replete with text. First released at the Ventura New Music Festival, it is now available at their website

Our next CD, "Into The Maelstrom," will be released on pfMentum Records by the end of the year. Also recorded live in our studio, it extends our concept compositionally without detracting from our improvisational roots.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Transhumans produce leading edge acousto-electric improvisations, all recorded live in-studio, that might remind you of a combination of Merzbow and Lightning Bolt. Justin Cassidy and Patrick Rodriguez each bring their unique abilities behind synths, samplers and effects boxes and meld them with the Jazz talent of Bob Sterling who simultaneously plays drums, samplers,triggers, and other assorted electronic devices. The intense combination of sounds might leave the listener somewhat bewildered at times, but their extended ambient moments leave plenty of opportunity to recharge before the next aural onslaught. Their live performances fill and energize the room with dense harmonics and energetic pulsations that are unique to a genre in search of a fresh new voice.
Their influences stretch from John Coltrane, Miles and Cecil Taylor to Merzbow and Throbbing Gristle, then on to Kafka, Dick, Burroughs and Krishnamurti.
