Why is this music important in today's scene?
Josh: Instrumental music is important to today's music scene because it's music that's telling a story, without actually saying anything. It can tug and pull at you on all emotional levels, even within a single song. It's moving music that you can connect with on a different level, as you have no vocals to listen to or decipher; instead, the instruments take the forefront.
Jenny: Instrumental music also can be the soundtrack to any event you may be going through in a day, through and weather, any thought or realization you've ever had can be set to the music we curate.
Where did this music come from?
Instrumental music can be traced back to ancient times, but the genres we focus in mostly originated in the U.S., Iceland, and the United Kingdom. This music comes from across the globe pouring out of the amps of those who just get it.
Why are you doing this show?
Aside from just loving the music we would like to get the instrumental community out from hiding and enjoying it all together. We all share a love of instrumental music and we want to share that special connection with everyone!
Who's your favorite artist or song?
Josh: My favorite artist will forever be Explosions in the Sky, but currently I've been jammin' the song Cleaveland on the Square by the post-rock group NOMADS.
Jenny: Broken Social Scene and their first album Feel Good Lost, also really love Manitoba, Angelo Badalamenti, Dosh, and Lymbyc Systym
