While most bands seem to exist as self-sustaining music creating machines, The Elec Tet has favored a more collective approach to the creative process. Originally conceived as a tribute project, Chicago based drummer Ben Scholz has morphed the group into a proving ground for new material in both live and studio situations. Not all ideas stand the performance test, but the ones that do are still subject to the rigors of studio production and editing. The debut album Shiny Metal Objects is the result of many months of trial and error by some of the top performing musicians in the country.
Says drummer/producer Ben Scholz - We were lucky enough to have the chance to bring guitarist Oz Noy in to overdub on five songs for 'Shiny Metal Objects'. His contribution as a guest artist set the standard for what we hoped to accomplish. In my mind, his ability to create in the studio is on par with guitar legends such as Scofield, Stern, Metheny, even Hendrix.
