    The newest Evil Clown ensemble, Turbulence Doom Choir, is a side project of Turbulence, the wind ensemble which is the extended horn section of the Leap of Faith Orchestra... This new project features electric tubas along with percussion and electronic elements from the Evil Clown Arsenal and PEK's woodwinds... Not a choir in the usual meaning of the word, but a Choir of Doom Sounds... (and with some Doom-Laden Voice by Yuri and PEK in the closing section...)
    Review by Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery
    TURBULENCE DOOM CHOIR With DAVE PEK/DAVE HARRIS/JOHN BAYLIES/YURI ZBITNOV - Lava Flow (Evil Clown 9117; USA) The Turbulence Doom Choir features PEK on clarinets, saxes, theremin, saxophone, etc., Dave Harris & John Baylies on electric tubas and Yuri Zbitnov on drums & other percussion. Turbulence is yet another Leap of faith offshoot unit with two core members: PEK & percussionist Zbitnov, plus fellows on amplified tubas, both of whom are members of the Leap of Faith Orchestra and a few smaller LoF sessions. “Turbulence” seems like a most appropriate title since this is what it feels like to be a raft on an ocean of crisscrossing currents. Both tubas are in the center creating layers of low-end drones with the disorienting blend of PEK’s shrewd reeds & double reeds and Zbitnov’s dizzying percussion. As with all of the discs from the Leap of Faith network, this one evolves organically to give each member of the quartet a chance to converse and evolve. Leap of Faith secret weapon is their drummer Yuri Zbitnov who knows when to navigate the rapids or lead the rhythmic currents. In the first long section, Yuri is featured and creates a great robust groove, making us want to dance to the central infectious vibe. This is a strong spirited date, that is rarely too far out and sounds consistently spirited, engaging and filled with a central focus or magic. It is not that turbulent but still most well-conceived. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
