Faux Pas Quartet / Bio

Faux Pas Quartet is a free form improvisation ensemble whose sole purpose is the spontaneous expression of the unconscious. Soft and hard synths, electric bass, Electronic Wind Instrument, a pedal tray and female vocals are used to create beats, bleepy-blurpy noises, intricate melodies, samples, and haunting vocals.
The resulting music, quite literally, comes from the same stuff of which dreams are made. Archetypes of the psyche rising unfettered through the medium of the unconscious and becoming manifest in the shared conscious reality.
The music is soothing, agitating, floating, rhythmic, funny, scary, sad, angry, melodic and atonal.
Relax, open up and take the time to flow with the music. Above all, give yourself permission to explore the irrational.
In addition to live performances, Faux Pas Quartet performs live improvisations on the weekly streaming radio and podcast "Music from last Thursday" (MflT) on radio.electro-music.com.
Podcasts of MflT are available for download at www.mflt.info or iTunes - search "Music from last Thursday".
