ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
String Theory combines the refined elegance of classical music, the clear mood of modern ambient, and the raw energy of rock & roll into a performance experience that is as inspiring as it is unique. The music is designed to engage and entice the listener/audience member to take a sonic journey to places previously unexplored. The invented instruments are the visual and sonic point of departure, and the accompanying instruments transition from support to focal roles as the pieces unfold. Traditional instrumentation such as cello, violin, voice, guitar, bass, percussion, sampler and drums round out the multifaceted sonic line up. Each band member brings different ideas and aesthetics into the mix, culminating in truly enthralling music.

A hybrid of kinetic performance components featuring sonic sculpture, choreography and dance, and original music, String Theory is an ensemble dedicated to creating innovative work. String Theory's signature element revolves around a series of invented instruments that are the resonating chambers of the long-string Harps.

The Harp strings can extend to lengths of up to one thousand feet and attach to architecture, both interior and exterior. The Harps create the landscape in which the group's kinetic performances unfold. Each installation is site-specific, making each performance experience unique to the environment.

Once the installation is complete, the architecture is transformed into a giant musical instrument. Choreography is created to facilitate the playing of the long-strings.

Traditional instrumentation such as cello, violin, guitar, bass, drums and percussion round out the musical accompaniment and allow String Theory to perform many different styles of music from 15th century Spanish renaissance to cutting edge modern ambient.

With incredible craft for nuance and a careful, intentful way with subtlety, String Theory mixes instrumentation such as cello, violin, voice, guitar, bass, percussion, sampler and drums to prepare a succulent, atmospheric texture behind all their songs. With hints of classical composition here and there as well as colors from around the world, at their core, they are a rock band, pushed ahead by their highly evolved approach to songwriting and genre-mixing. Overall, the 9 White Orchids EP captures an individual ambience, casting a spell of receptivity over their listeners. It's rare to find such creativity and agility as we find in this noteworthy disc.
