The Clinic was founded by saxophonist David Pate, as an avenue to explore different soundscapes. The music is spontaneously improvised within subtle guidelines allowing for constantly changing textures, timbres and direction. The result is an explosion of musical voices that range from ambient atmospheres to raging free-jazz; always leading the listener (and performers) into uncharted and unexpected musical domains.
