ECSTATIC MUSIC BAND Approaching The Infinite CD (FABCD041)
"Approaching the Infinite" is a blistering 40 minute drone performance by the Ecstatic Music Band.
The Ecstatic Music Band is a collective of over 10 members. The group performs on both amplified acoustic instruments and electric instruments with tuning systems derived directly from the overtone series. Their compositional-improvisations produce dense and dynamic fields of harmonic interference and reinforcement, while searching for a deep consonance amid the flux of microtonal variations, beating tones, difference tones, and psychoacoustic phenomena.
The use of high volumes and long durations creates an immersive sound-field where complex harmonies begin to emerge.
Ecstatic Music Band members John Krausbauer, Ezra Buchla, and Agnes Szelag perform on "Approaching The Infinite", their first recording for Fabrica.
Limited edition CD of 100. Also available via Bandcamp on 6/9/17.
