The Comprovisers were a free improvisation group in Iowa City, active in 2014 and 2015, founded by Justin K Comer, Andrew DiRuzza, Nima Hamidi, and Will Huff, with an open and revolving membership.

The tracks here are live recordings of just a few of our performances. I was not as diligent about documenting and recording all of my activities at the time, so the rest of the Comprovisers' performances were singular events lost to the sands of time. Most of the Comprovisers have moved on to other projects, but perhaps someday the team will be revived...

Making music in the bustling metropolis of Coralville, IA. Sometimes with my friends. Sometimes by myself. I went to school for this.
