Faux Pas Quartet is a free form improvisation ensemble whose sole purpose is the spontaneous expression of the unconscious.The resulting music, quite literally, comes from the same stuff of which dreams are made. Archetypes of the psyche rising unfettered through the medium of the unconscious and becoming manifest in the share conscious reality. The music is soothing, agitating, floating, rhythmic, funny, scary, sad, angry, melodic and atonal.
Relax, open up and take the time to flow with the music. Above all, give yourself permission to explore the irrational.
Faux Pas Quartet has performed live improvisations on the streaming radio and podcast "Music from last Thursday" (MflT) on radio.electro-music.com since 2010. "MflT Favorites Vol. 3; Kokopelli in a deep space cargo ship" contains music performed on MflT in the early part of 2012. Podcasts of MflT are available for download at www.mflt.info or iTunes - search "Music from last Thursday".
