Pianist Denman Maroney, bassist James Ilgenfritz, saxophonist Angelika Niescier, and percussionist Andrew Drury make up this unorthodox quartet that blends complex time fields with unusual textures and melodies. All four members contribute compositions, balanced with extended improvisations that might at any moment turn from melodious to ethereal. For their Fall 2013 tour MiND GAMeS will play material from their debut and from their forthcoming follow-up release.
