Ghost Ensemble seeks to create experiential music. We see the greatest music as a transcendent bridge between worlds — such music is naturally experienced sensually and intuitively rather than intellectually. It is fulfilling because it moves beyond informing, entertaining, or “interesting” our minds and creates a complete experience. Thus, rather than focusing on a particular time period or genre, we look toward the essence of the music’s effect.
Based in New York City, Ghost Ensemble explores both traditional and non-traditional venues to expand the musical experience; the familiar becomes unfamiliar through musical transcendence, while unexpected and unexplored places become a new layer of beauty.
The core ensemble includes flute, oboe, harp, percussion, viola, and contrabass, occasionally joined by other instruments and musicians.
