The object is to disseminate the music of musician/composer David 'Dave' Panton.
Although the primary genre is free improviation/avant-garde, the styles/genres covered are very wide. This is primarily due to the idea behind the One Music Ensemble: that it should not exclude or discriminate against any particualar individual, instrumental or compositional/improvisational concept, but be free and open to them all. This is in contrast to the Derek Bailey notion of 'non-idiomatic improvisation'. Indeed, it could have been called the 'Non-Discriminating Orchestra', the acronym of which in fact became the name of the former NONDO record label.
