Our Music Director, Brandon Jolley, sits down with members of the alternative four-piece band Ruth in the Bardo to discuss the band's history, influences, creative process, the differences between the Columbia and Philadelphia music scene, and living in a music venue.
Be on the lookout for the band's upcoming album, Ars Poetica, described as "southern gothic shoegaze slowcore."
Special Thanks to:
Ruth in the Bardo
Transition from Latin to composed music. Trying to get ahead of the curve. Some of the most important artists are inspired by contemporary composers, Miles Davis and Stockhausen, Bill Evans and Debussy, John Lennon and Beethoven, Pachelbel and everyone who has used his infamous chord progression, and countless more. So, I offer this time slot as a study for what composers of today are writing for myself in my own works, as well as aspiring or practicing musicians in the scene here for inspiration themselves.
