Album Notes
This collection of Brass Music represents the panacea of compositional innovation in Western Music. With the exception of Charles Ives, all of these composers are contemporaries. With the advent of new technologies and discovery of the past 100 years came many different modes of thought and theories of Art. In tracing the brass tradition from its folk roots to the highest artistic form of expression, an ensemble has formed out of the music contained in this cd. Influences and abilities abound in this group, comprised of musicians who are adept in virtually any style imaginable. To be blunt, these guys can play anything.

The ensemble is made up of 6 trumpets, 4 horns, 4 trombones, 2 tubas, electric guitar, keyboard, and a battery of 8 percussion.

CD Baby

Showcasing works by Babbitt, Xenakis, Felder, Pierson, and new arrangements of cutting edge works by Nelson, Perez Prado, Ives, and Sedicias, Metalofonico displays astounding musicianship in these commendable recordings of contemporary classical music for brass, percussion, and guitar. With equal dedication and conviction shining through from Perez Prado's "Mambo #5" to Iannis Xenakis's "Khalperr," this group unflinchingly demonstrates that they can, indeed, play anything and everything. It's rare to find a classical compilation of works with so much cohesiveness and consistent allegiance. Metalofonico's self-titled album accomplishes that and much, much more.
