Setting aside (for the moment) the electric instrumentation of "Simultonality" (2017) & "Magnetoception" (2015), Joshua Abrams conceived "Mandatory Reality" for an eight-piece acoustic manifestation of NIS, consisting of himself on Guimbri, Lisa Alvarado - harmonium & gongs, Mikel Avery - tam-tam & gongs, Ben Boye - autoharp & piano, Hamid Drake - tabla & tar, Ben Lamar Gay - cornet, Nick Mazzarella - alto saxophone, & Jason Stein - bass clarinet
A 2 LP set, the album is comprised largely of two performances, both Joshua Abrams compositions, 24 & 40 minutes in length. While new to the band’s records, long duration pieces are familiar to those who’ve heard JA&NIS in concert in recent years, where elaboration on a single composition for an hour or more is not unusual
