Album Notes
Manifesto, the debut recording by Dan Berg and the Gestalt, introduces a major new voice to the world of contemporary music, one consciously changing the manner in which modern sounds are created and heard. The overall product strikes a smooth balance between groove and art, visceral and cerebral, the popular and the esoteric.

With Manifesto, Dan Berg and his colleagues refuse to be pigeonholed into any single category of artistic expression. Instead, they combine their disparate musical backgrounds into an eclectic new sound. The band truly lives up to the appellation, Gestalt, in that the group itself is far greater than the sum of its very talented individual parts: vocalist Kristin Young, clarinetist Adrian Mira, alto saxophonist Jessica Lurie, bassist Matt Wigton and drummer Pat Agresta. As a result of this synergy, Berg’s inimitable songs become beautiful mosaics where the individual sections come together seamlessly so that their original sources disappear into one unified whole.
Warmly recorded in pure analog and attractively designed with intriguing graphics, Manifesto is a work of art that signals the arrival of an important new musician/composer, one with the ability to fulfill his need to be original and contemporary, while still reaching the hearts, minds and souls of many different listeners.
