“The NYC-based composer and performer Patrick Grant has had a long and gleaming career that continues on with his newest release, A Sequence of Waves (Twelve Stories and a Dream). The album is a refined collection of genre-bending and experimental tracks that many critics struggle to pin down. Stumbling into post-minimalism, modern classical, prog rock, and post-rock territory, the album wears many masks. And for good reason, given Grant’s accomplished background.”

TILTED AXES: SÃO PAULO – Now it’s official and can be announced: The 3rd Música Estranha – International Exploratory Music Festival, to be held in São Paulo, Brazil, from 25th to 29th of November 2015, has invited Tilted Axes to create a series of events for their city. Exactly how it will manifest itself is still in development (there’s much work to do) but, it’s very exciting to think of how things will sound with Brazilian musicians added to the post-progressive mix. Very.
