Consider The Source
Consider The Source
Three Musicians converging on an epic plateau of sound and reflex. Three conscious minds communicating on sub-conscious levels. New York City's CONSIDER THE SOURCE is the fourth voice, produced when the trio's three distinct personalities combine forces to share their inner music freely with each other.

Toting the loaded description Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Funk, their sound is a melting pot of Middle Eastern scales, psychedelic jams, and a hard rocking rhythm section. Featuring Gabriel Marin on Fret-Less Double Neck Guitar, John Ferrara on Bass, and Justin Ahiyon on Drums/Percussion, the three musicians cite their influences as including The Bad Plus, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, King Crimson and Tool—but a major source of their musical power can be attributed to a trip the band took to India, where they studied the complex tala (rhythm) of North India, and the micro-tonal scale structure and melodic ornamentations of South India. Guitarist Gabriel Marin, recently highlighted in Guitar Player Magazine, says, "Our music combines influences from Turkish, Bulgarian, North and South Indian styles with jazz and fusion, and then we filter it through our own heavy rock and psychedelic sounds and approaches."

Over the past few years this trio has toured the United States numerous times and toured through the Middle East and Europe performing in Israel, Turkey & Germany. Consider the Source has performed alongside such luminaries as Victor Wooten, Wayne Krantz, Kris Myers (of Umphrey's McGee), Wyclef Jean (of The Fugee's), Freak Kitchen, U-Melt at Bowery Ballroom NYC, Klezmer Giant Andy Statman, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Garaj Mahal, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, GE Smith (Saturday Night Live Band), Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, The Heavy Pets, Schleigho, The Brew, Kung Fu and many others. They've appeared at numerous festivals including Burning Man, Mid Summer Meltdown, The Big Up, Dogwood Festival (NC), PowWow Festival (MD), NYC Fret-Less Guitar Fest, NYC's Howl Festival, the NY Gypsy Festival and the East Village Arts Festival. Their music has been aired nationally on Fox 5′s Fearless Music TV show, on which they won the award for best unsigned independent act.
Consider the Source's new album "That's What's Up" is a testament to the band members core beliefs & values about their art and expression. They continue forging new sounds and unique song structures, fusing foreign time signatures with exotic rhythms and refining a dialogue-based form of improvising where the rhythms are the words, the notes are the feelings and the dynamics convey the intensity. The trio has been taking this music around the world, driven by a fearless desire to be themselves and deliver their sound as honestly as they can in the pure rawness of the "moment".
2012 is already shaping up to be an epic year for the band as their schedule is already filling up with national and international tour dates and festivals. In 2012, Consider the Source goes global! Stay tuned and we'll see you out there…
Cindercat
Cindercat
Cindercat's broad range of musical influences emerges through a unique tapestry of sound. They create a hypnotic flow, manipulating the soundscape with soaring peaks and spacious resolves. The band thrives on improvisation, continuously reshaping their live performances. As a collective of creative individuals they incorporate various forms of mixed-media to create a dynamic atmosphere at every show.

In the winter of 2011, Cindercat teamed up with producer/recording-engineer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Williams of The Eagle Room to record their debut album Remnants of Earth. After six months of refining and crafting what is being called a sonic journey through progressive post-rock, Remnants of Earth was released in the Fall of 2011. With this first studio release after four years together as a band, the album marks an important time in the evolution of their sound. From theremin infused ambiance and electronic dance grooves to shredding guitar solos and soulful jazz fusion, Remnants of Earth represents a snapshot of what makes Cindercat's sound so dynamic.
