The Group:
TWISTER! originated in the Great Plains of the United States of America in 1969, and was composed of six musicians; a vocalist, a guitarist, a
bassist, a drummer, and an instrumentalist. The group has been credited for being the first to twist Ambient and easy listening music with the sounds of nature. The sounds of nature that the instrumentalist plays is that which would be heard in a tornado, or twister. For example, the combination of a rainmaker and the sound of thunder, as well as the combination of a rainmaker and the sound of wind is typically used by TWISTER!. Currently, there are groups all across the world that are together for the purpose of fusing music with the sounds of nature that are heard where they live, whether it is a stream, the ocean, or simply the tweet of birds.
