NakedEye Ensemble: Storylines Crossing

Ether Music CD

"If you tossed an electric blues band and a contemporary music ensemble into the blender and turned it to high, you might end up with something like NakedEye... The music on the group’s exciting debut release is a stylistic melange, full of gritty energy and wonderful stylistic feints."
San Francisco Chronicle

This debut recording of the NakedEye Ensemble helps refute the notion that contemporary classical music is isolated from the world we live in. Three works have a sociopolitical slant, and several pieces draw on the energy that rock offers.

The pieces are inspired by a wide variety of subjects, including: the Vietnam War; the infamous Attica Prison riots; the development of a “groovy” bass line; and the antics of catnip-fueled cats. Five of the six works receive their premiere recordings, and the sixth work presents a new music masterpiece in a new, unusual arrangement.

David Lee Myers: Ether Music

Ether Music CD

The “Darwin of electromagnetic lifeforms”
– Mark Dery

“Dreamier meditations"
The New York Times


– Steve Smith, The Log Journal

The music on this new “David Lee Myers: Ether Music” CD is distinctive and enticing. We hear an hallucinatory trip to a Martian jungle; irregularly accented bongos overlaid with frog-croaked arpeggios; a rapidly sputtering, helium inhaling synthesizer; a demented organ, gasping for life; all concluding with dorsal streaming, which presents a lovely, placid atmosphere, tinged with panpipe-like chuffing.
