Expo ’70 is the main driving improvisational essence of Justin Wright.

Having started the project in Los Angeles in 2003, Wright has pushed his?project to new levels, releasing a number of albums as cdr’s and 2?full-length albums.

Expo ’70’s first album “Animism”, which debuted in 2007?on Kill Shaman, is an eclectic mix of krautrock, ambient drone, space?exploration and minimal compositions. Comparisons range from Brian Eno, Ash?Ra Tempel, A.R. & Machines, SunnO))) and Earth, but not directly sounding?like any of those artists in their entirety.
