Ever since the concert at Alva's Showroom, Dean has been mixing a full set of music by the Stratos Ensemble to give to you all as a free download. Nab it while it's there. It's to show our thanks for supporting the band!
The set is roughly 45 minutes of improvised electro-ambient jazz, recorded a couple of years ago and never released. It moves through a few phases from start to finish, and yes, is completely improvised aside from some effects and editing in the post.
The file is a high quality mp3. If you don't see a download button, go directly to the Soundcloud page and find it under the player window.
Players: Rod McDowell - bass
Brock Bowers - drums
Dean De Benedictis - synth, effects and production
Angelo Elonte - violin and 12-string guitar (The photo used in the image is from the same recording session as this gift.)
Lastly, thanks to many of you for joining us at the Alva's Showroom concert last September 17th! We've since worked out the kinks, so the next concert proves to be even more exciting and artistically involving. Hold us to that.
