Beep! is a musical collective comprised of pianist Michael Coleman, bassist Nate Brenner and drummer Sam Ospovat. Their music is based on concepts of group interplay, free improvisation, song writing and orchestration in a piano trio setting. While rooted in the jazz tradition, the trio's compositions fuse rock, folk, jazz and classical music to create their own personal and energetic sound. Variety is cornerstone for the trio and each composition utilizes different rhythmic feels and sonic textures as well as a variety of instruments including keyboards, effects, glockenspiels and even the human voice. Beep! seeks out new sounds and emotions by de-constructing original material and standard repertoire to explore what's hidden beneath the surface.
- You Are Special, You are a Special Friend by Raul d'Gama Rose
Beep! offers a dynamic, vibrant sound...the exclamation mark in their name is definitely appropriate.
