According to The New York Times, the Asphalt Orchestra is “part parade spectacle, part halftime show and part cutting-edge contemporary music concert.” This 12-member, New York City-based, guerrilla-music force is known to unleash innovative music from concert halls, rock clubs and jazz basements to the streets and beyond. The expertly-trained members of Asphalt Orchestra combine Western classical, rock, pop music and jazz, and have a repertoire that ranges from music by pop wizard Bjork and jazz legend Charles Mingus to rock progressive Frank Zappa and Swedish metal band Meshuggah. In addition, they perform new music written for the band by David Byrne and Annie Clark, Yoko Ono, Tatsuya Yoshida, Goran Bregovic, Tyondai Braxton and Stew and Heidi Rodewald.
