Ensemble, et. al. Debut LP

This Saturday at Spectrum, Ensemble, et. al. celebrates the release of Present Point, their debut LP. It consists of music by all four of the group’s members – Jeff Eng, Charlie Kessenich, J. Ross Marshall & Ron Tucker – percussionists who write in a lithe post-minimal style with keen nods to post-rock and the American experimental tradition as well.

As one can hear in the teaser track, “No Matter How Fast You Run Today, You Will Never Catch up to Tomorrow,” embedded below, the music is populated with ebullient grooves that are fleshed out with textural layers of both pitched and unpitched percussion in deftly imagined arrangements. Recommended.
