Jobe Redfearn Ensemble with Shamanic
The Jobe Redfearn Ensemble brings together the aesthetics of two
contrasting but complementary composers: Steven Jobe and Alec Redfearn.
Jobe spends most of his time writing operas, his most recent work being
"The Legend of the Fairy Melusine." Redfearn, leader of the band The
Eyesores is recognized on both sides of the Atlantic for his prolific
originality. The Ensemble features colorful instrumentation -- accordion,
violin, viola, cello, hurdy-gurdy, string bass and percussion -- performing
music that is eclectic and extremely hard to classify, the influences too many
The Ensemble will at times expand the core sound with the addition of some
of Jobe's experimental instruments such as his large-scale hurdy-gurdies: the
seven ft long Drone Machine and the ten ft Bosch Hurdy-Gurdy. The results
can range from an atavistic sonic experiment to a primal hypnotic wave.
The Jobe/Redfearn Ensemble simply needs to be heard to be believed.
