Like a well-oiled machine, MFA fuses live improvisation with modern electronica for a smooth and creative approach to live music.


Creating loops and samples in a live setting, MFA inspires scientific soundscapes and ground-breaking innovation while busting through the confines of modern electronica. Constantly reworking original compositions, MFA strives to provide originality in each set they play. Using snippets of electronic sounds, their approach includes unique ambient storyboards within driving drumbeats, innovative guitar passages, and creative looping. Often referred to as live drum 'n' bass, MFA flows smoothly through atmospheric themes and intelligent jungle rhythms for an innovative approach to live music and intricate improvisation. Included in their performances is an incredible "class A" lighting system designed to entice the audience into visual escape from the everyday music experience.

Based out of Boulder, Colorado, the quartet has performed over 150 live shows within their first two years as an ensemble. They have recorded a new studio album, aptly named The 43rd Street Sessions, featuring 50 minutes of improvisation. Pressed by Sideways 8 Records, their new album has proven to be a huge success on the electronica market and is available for purchase from HomeGrown Records and Cage Free Records.

As their sound matures with the musical movement, MFA proves to be truly unique and alive, capturing a sound that inspires creativity and evolution.
