Quarantine Hall: Ghost Ensemble

One of the quirks of the COVID-19 Culture Closure (CV19CC?) is that there are now more chances to experience a lot of music that normally would come only intermittently. Shit ain’t normal.

I do not get to see Ghost Ensemble, or its members, enough. One of the quirks of the COVID-19 Culture Closure (CV19CC?) is that there are now more chances to experience a lot of music that normally would come only intermittently. Shit ain’t normal.

Here’s two videos from the ensemble, a March 6 performance in LA where they play James Ilgenfritz’s (Hi James!) Apophenia V, and from the same concert a performance of Ben Richter’s Wind People.

I’m a fan of Richter’s album Panthalassa: Dream Music of the Once and Future Ocean, and I told him a few years ago that I hoped to have the chance to advocate for it. So here we are—buy this record of deep, drone-based compositions.

And find more of the ensemble’s music here.
