Brooklyn band Bing and Ruth is an 11-piece ensemble led by composer and pianist David Moore.
Described by the NY Times as “making the most of layered and atmospheric melody,” the band utilizes clarinets, voices, cellos, and a buffet of other acoustic instruments to craft expansive soundscapes and quiet microtonal textures.
The ensemble enjoys it’s reputation as a unique live experience, and it’s recent performances in the New York area include the 2009 MATA Festival, the Wordless Music Series, Darmstadt New Music, the WFMU Festival, and Stochastic Brooklyn and you can have a tasty preview with the wonderful Take Away Show shot in Coney Island, NY, by Vincent Moon’s Blogotheque.
