I am the flame that burns in every heart of man, and in the core of every star. I am Life, and the giver of Life, yet therefore is the knowledge of me the knowledge of death. (Hadit, Al II:6)

Fable Grazer is a free improv collective based in Somerville, MA. The group formed in the summer of 2012, when founding member Marc Drinkwater began stalking local musicians on Soundcloud, gathering cogs for a human loop station. The schematic soon became obsolete when the cogs rebelled against their engineer, demanding freedom. Marc discovered (to his horror) that he unwittingly assembled a sonic T-1000, as the group would continuously dissolve into puddles and reform into grotesque, unpredictable shapes over the course of jams that often spanned more than an hour.

Fable Grazer has about 5-6 core members (depending on when you read this) and a long list of extended family and special guests, wielding instrumentation that encompasses everything from guitar, modular synth, trumpet, mandolin and melodica, to radiator (and related plumbing), springs, loose change, broken glass, and pool table (with balls).
