*Open Auditions* for The American Pop Music Experiment
We're putting together the rhythm section for local & regional performance and the recording of our 2nd album in 2014.
Drums * Latin Percussion * Guitar * Piano/Organ
Familiarity with and ability to play different genres is required. Ability to sing harmony vocals is preferred. This gig will include the reading of chord charts and light notation for rehearsal.
PHILOSOPHY: The APME seeks to create music stylistically different from traditional/established genres. We're attempting to reconstruct the boundaries of form arrangement, how instruments function and interact with one another, and the orthodoxies of harmony, melody, and rhythm. While we're intent on breaking "the rules" it's a high priority that the music be assessable and enjoyable to non-musician/lay listeners.
YOU: The APME doesn't care if you're a man or woman, young or old, connected or not connected, short or tall, white/black/brown/yellow/red, in-shape or out of shape, gay or straight, etc. etc. We're simply looking for good players with a passion for the music.
