Keyboard Choir, a band described as “a journey through the history of electronic music” is a collective of six musicians who try to make music with the turbulence and dynamics of traditional ‘ensemble’ performance, using purely electronic sound sources and ‘found sound’.
“When we started we toyed with the idea of being a loose, random collective with people coming and going but it didn’t work, it was too loose and random. We got our act together and in late 2006/early 2007 we began recording what was to become our debut album, ‘Mizen Head to Gascanane Sound’, put to tape (or in our case, hard disk) in South-western Ireland, and named after the area. The album is released on Brainlove records and online 25/2/08.
While the video is a little iffy – Keyboard Choir looks like an interesting project.
