ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2017 an eccentric band was born. It entered into existence with a determination to bring new colour to the musical landscape. ’Beat Love Oracle’ is a dazzling testosterone quartet, that consists of a saxophone, a marimba, an electric bass and an impressive drum set.
A description of the music might go like this: take the best of all kinds of music, from classical to popular, from jazz to rock, from Zappa to rap, plunk these in a big cauldron, and when the heavenly perfumes start to waft from the simmering stew, just sniff them up greedily and let your brain do the rest. Itʼs fun, but itʼs fun distilled from the best ingredients. Moreover, Beat Love Oracle's greatest wish is to share all these influences which we passionately love, because we love the audience too! Beat Love Oracle let you tap in to the whole musical continuum from the recent past to the far future.
As the name of the band indicates, beats are important in Beat Love Oracle. iPod and iPhones rank all kinds of music in nice playlists. It's high time to get rid of the pigeonholing of music styles and Beat Love Oracle leads the way.
One associates beats with all kinds of music, but not really with notated music. Beat Love Oracle wants to tear down the walls of presumed divisions and offers chamber music for non-classical instruments, for which almost no composed scores exist so far. In that sense, this may be a predictive kind of music. For we live in a time where all instruments are emancipated -in fact, also conservatories are spearheading this trend- but some non-classical instruments still have a rather limited written-out repertoire. Is it therefore not also the task of contemporary composers to take the lead in this?
There once was the 'Modern Jazz Quartet', featuring a vibraphone. Beat Love Oracle with its marimba maybe could be called the 'Postmodern Cross-over Quartet' -having swapped metal for wood- and may encourage composers to create quartets that even strings envy.

Beat Love Oracle presents music with a high level of energy that feels approachable and sometimes slightly familiar but always with a clever and inventive twist.
Beat Love Oracle wants the audience to feel their unheard-of fun because it's a nice win-win for all involved, including the band itself.
