The Warhol welcomes the genre-defying saxophone quartet Battle Trance (comprised of Travis Laplante, Matthew Nelson, Jeremy Viner, Patrick Breiner) on a tour supporting their debut release, Palace of Wind, on New Amsterdam Records. Performing primarily the music of member Travis Laplante, the quartet crosses boundaries and exists loosely within realms of contemporary classical music, avant-garde jazz, black metal, ambient, and world music, the new record challenges conventions of the saxophone as an ensemble instrument. The sonic vocabulary of the quartet has developed through techniques such as circular breathing, allowing them to build continuous, hypnotic waves of sound and intricate textures.
“[Laplante’s music] might change your life, indefinably.”
