The all-tenor sax quartet, Battle Trance, specializes in the uncanny transformations of their instruments.  Together they perform longform, meditative pieces with a strong emphasis on drone, circular breathing, and trancelike repetition, bringing to mind the works of 20th Century minimalist composers like Philip Glass or Steve Reich, but with an added primal energy and urgency reminiscent of Pharaoh Sanders or Joe McPhee.

Battle Trance has released two albums to date on the prolific indie-label, NNA Tapes:  Palace of the Wind (2014) and Blade of Love (2016). Both albums have won praise for their genre-crossing compositions, drawing comparisons to the contemporary classical world, modal avant-garde jazz, and noise-based experimentalism. In live settings the quartet is capable of creating a hypnotic fury of notes, unifying both the harmonic and physical in sound.

presented in partnership with The Luminary
