THE FOURTH WORLD QUARTET released two 'collections' {recorded in 1975} on Cuneiform Records, both in 2021 and 2022 meeting rave reviews. Laurence and twin brother Ben were so inspired by this that
they then 
practiced and recorded 30 other compositions of theirs from those same daze, along
with a few other musicians contributing to tracks as well. To everyone's joyful astonishment,
Cuneiform Records went a head and released this mammoth batch in July 2023,
under the name MILLER TWINS Early Compositions (1973-76).

Laurence then formed TINN PARROW and his CLAPFOLD PLATUNE to push the vision further.
This ensemble began rehearsing in March 2023, learning
 many of those compositions,
along with other reimagined pieces 
and brand new material as well.

A new home recording project began in November 2023. Members of The Platune have been selected to participate
as well as several other fabulous musicians from the Detroit Metro area. Two CD's are in production stage;
'The Making of Bella Rae' and 'The Threshold Effect'
Reinvented compositions from years past
along with
brand new compositions to boot. Hopes are high as ever as excitement grows.
