Ravello Records presents 315 Ensemble, the self-titled debut album of composer/electric guitarist/sound artist Chris Cresswell’s sextet, recorded live at Birmingham Conservatoire in England. Cresswell’s 315 Ensemble is dedicated to exploring possibilities in electroacoustic music as well as commissioning works from outstanding composers worldwide. This album premieres two compositions by Cresswell exclusively...

If, like me, you're not a huge follower of modern experimental music then 315 Ensemble eases you in to what. at times, can be a wonderful and beautiful world.

There's a mix of white noise, digital sampling, ambient electronic textures, and classical instruments, on this album's 2 pieces (18 min, 29 sec). It's interesting and does offer something a little different.

It's bold, original and attention grabbing. For fans of modern Classical music this offers plenty to engage your senses.
