Details:
This album channels music for organ, classical guitars, strings, and Indonesian gamelans through electric guitars and classic vacuum tube amplifiers. The result is an extraordinary blend of art music and post-rock, achieved by eight classically trained guitarists who reclaim the electric guitar and transform a variety of art music genres.

Album Reviews:
"This sounds hoity toity but it isn''t! For fans of guitar-based postrock…this is electric guitar chamber music. Eight classically trained musicians (yes from Los Angeles) reimagine the traditional and also play new music by living composers using electric guitars and vacuum tube amps." -Amoeba Records

"The trickling of the guitars gently sweeps over the listener in a wave-like fashion, making for a bed of delicate vibrating strumming. Here''s hoping their next release is as strong as the material presented on this very satisfying debut." -Gaz-eta

More About the Los Angeles Electric 8:
The octet’s repertoire spans the late Renaissance to the present day, ranging from the polychoral music of Giovanni Gabrieli to Igor Stravinsky’s Octet for Wind Instruments. Their latest program, Interlocking Textures, juxtaposes Indonesian gamelan with American minimalism, highlighting the work of ethnomusicologist Mantle Hood and pianist Charles T. Griffes. Beyond re-imagining the traditional, the Electric 8 is devoted to playing new music. The group has premiered new works by Frank J. Oteri, Phil Kline, and Peter Yates and continues to actively collaborate with living composers from around the world. Both their debut album Los Angeles Electric 8 plays Shostakovich, Mendelssohn, Braddock, Siegel, and Kohl, and their upcoming release Imagined Overtures, illustrate how the group balances adapting the old and advancing the new.
