The music was heavily arranged and each instrument had a detailed, intricate part but what made the band so special was the improvisational skills of the musicians, improvising based off the complexities of the music.
Influenced by Tsuneo Imahori, video game/movie sountracks, jazz/classical, the music of quantum milkshake purposely was extremely hard to play live and brought a real intensity and excitement to each performance where not even the band members knew what the music would sound like that night. Quantum Milkshake performed many venues, many festivals like Rainbow Serpent, FRL and Tanglewood and even played a packed out show with choir and Orchestra for their album launch.
Quantum Milkshake strikes close to home as one of Fabians most successful and meaningful projects his worked in.
