Multitude, Solitude (CD)
Ergo is a trio made up of Carl Maguire on Rhodes electric piano and analog synths and effects, Shawn Baltazor on drums and lead by Brett Sroka on trombone and laptop. They have been playing together since 2003, combining the modern sound of electronica and beyond with jazz and ambient music. The basic building blocks of their sound are beats and electronics, trombone, the Fender Rhodes and drums. The music is very modern and it's also very accessible while remaining something that hold active interest. In the early 2000s, Brett began exploring beyond his jazz background and became fascinated with electronic music, surrounding himself with synthesizers and software. As he sought to reconcile the six hundred years of technology between trombone and computer he also found musicians of similarly elastic and adventurous temperaments. As they continued to play together, an idiosyncratic dynamic began to cohere and Ergo was born. With their debut cd, the band put forth a statement of purpose and were lauded by AllAboutJazz-NY for "Best Debut CD" of 2006. Multitude, Solitude is Ergo's sophomore CD and brings the band further into it's own. Ergo's music is fresh and very different - jazz musicians exploring the boundaries of electronic music - and one of stark melodic beauty, enveloping electro-acoustic texture and empathic imagination. Their music has been compared to music as diverse as Duke Ellington, Autechre, Sigur Ros, Sun Ra, and King Crimson, but interesting as those comparisons are, they don't really sound like any of them. They just sound like Ergo. Their music is one of stark melodic beauty, enveloping electro-acoustic texture and empathic imagination. They have refined a unique style of unadorned melody and intrepid improvisation with a sensual approach to the post-modern techniques of sampling, synthesis and signal processing.
