Event Details

Echoes is a jazz collective that blends futuristic electronica with focused improvisations to create a sound that is uniquely their own. Inspired by 21st-century musical ideals of cross-pollination and experimentation, the group augments its already unorthodox instrumentation with a variety of electronic instruments, loops, and triggers to explore new sonic and rhythmic territory. The band features Matt DiBiase (vibraphone), Chase Kuesel (drums), Evan Salvacion (bass) and Max Bessesen (saxophone).

Program highlights include the debut of original music from their upcoming album, Lasting; compositions from their latest full release, Loading Screen; and unrecorded music from their recent residency at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute. DiBiase will perform a solo vibraphone piece entitled "Elaine" and incorporate audio-reactive visual projections for a portion of the performance. In celebration of their first show at MoMM, Echoes will also release their new single, "Taylor," on October 15th.  

Show Notes

The Museum of Making Music invites you to an online discussion featuring members of Echoes as they talk about their origins and music.  This online discussion will take place on Tuesday, October 12 at 2 PM (PST).
