Estradasphere dedicates their art to interpreting and developing the underlying musical currents of time and place. Rather than shamelessly showcasing their instrumental prowess, the six-piece (rock?!) band from Santa Cruz, California draws on their broad scope of musicianship to explore the possibilities of the future, and more importantly, the past.
One moment, Estradasphere may manifest a Romainian gypsy tune through the psyche of an angsty suburban teenager, then be walking a musical path much traveled simply to uncover some semblance of a better time.
Connecting to music by playing real instruments (violin, upright bass, guitar, accordion, organ, Japanese Shamisen, drums) and a shifting variety of instrumentations (chamber ensemble, jazz combo, gypsy metal band, 60s film rock, etc.) Estradasphere holds the door for our individual and collective understanding of music.
