Alexander Noice Sextet + theBABAorchestra's ALBUM release concert

Alexander Noice Sextet
Alexander Noice has become a singular musical force in the Los Angeles creative music scene with a myriad bands including Falsetto Teeth, and his most recent release "Music Made With Voices" which came out on Orenda Records in October of 2016. His newest project, The Alexander Noice Sextet, is an inimitable modern ensemble melding the worlds of classical minimalism and contemporary opera with rock and jazz; that has made a notable impact on the Los Angeles music scene with their stunning live performances. With an affinity towards Reich-like minimalism, Stravinskyan episodic shifts, and lyrical melodic sensibilities derived from the pop worlds of the Talking Heads and David Bowie; Noice creates a sound with his ensemble that defies any pre conceived genre. 

theBABAorchestra is a Los Angeles based 17-piece experimental big band performing original new instrumental works by composer, conductor, and bandleader Lauren Elizabeth Baba. Amidst intricately woven melodies and massive brass textures are subtly creeping rock grooves and a generally dark ambience; creative music drawing from free jazz, avant-garde, drone-rock, and Middle Eastern folk. theBABAorchestra moves beyond conventional jazz by bringing an inventive, compelling, and untraditional take on large ensemble music to Los Angeles’ burgeoning jazz underground.
