Beyond the Boundary of Time is the last live performance of the Revolutionary Ensemble before the death of violinist Leroy Jenkins in 2007. The performance took place on May 25, 2005 in Warsaw, Poland and contains pieces written by each of the three members - "Configuration" by Sirone, "Usami" by Leroy Jenkins, and "Le-Si-Jer" by Jerome Cooper. There are also two improvisations by the trio, which further showcase their wonderfully-free sense of sound and form, as well as their ability to create new combinations of instruments and textures.

Beyond the Boundary of Time is the final recording to be released from the reformed Revolutionary Ensemble, following the 2004 Pi release And Now... Recorded live in Warsaw in 2005 (indeed, the best documents of the group's work have been live dates), the set features a composition by each of the three members and two group improvisations. Granted, much music happened for the members of the trio between their 1977 Enja swan song and the beginning of the new millennium. While Sirone composed for theater and Jenkins worked in his own numerous ensembles, Jerome Cooper's visibility stateside shrank, though he continued to work on his concept of multi-dimensional drumming, which includes reed instruments, balafon, keyboards (a Yamaha PSR 1500), gongs and the trap set.
