"K2" is the culmination of a nearly thirty year musical collaboration between two friends that began with their early days in the NYC prog rock group "Everest". Since that time, E. Doctor Smith and Seth Elgart have continued to collaborate on a variety of projects, ranging from the Source Theater production of "The Mound Builders", to Steve Ellison's "Flash to Bangtime" and Smith's acid jazz group, "The Drummstick". Influenced by the works of Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream, Kit Watkins, Larry Fast and others, "K2" represents the fullfilment of their long time dream of paying tribute to those like-minded musical mentors and utilizing a variety of today's 21st century MIDI technology.
