shutting up now

your tunes are ridiculously unique. you clearly have a vision. it is well executed and puts me in the weirdest moods.

i think you’re on to something, but hell if i understand what. your music is more silly than my 5 year old half-sister after she had just eaten all her hallows-eve candy.

Miami artist The Cat and Cage (aka Jeffrey Pierce) records electronic/jazz/noise in Logic Pro and Propellerheads Reason. Influences range from Bela Bartok to Lemon Jelly, with an exhausting but not exhaustive catalogue of 20th and 21st Century music (Stravinsky, the Velvet Underground, John Adams, the Clash, Debussy, David Bowie, Osvaldo Golijov, Duke Ellington, Anton von Webern, McCoy Tyner, David Lang, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Brian Eno) in between.

The Cat and Cage released its first album, “Evidence of Absence,” in 2010 and is working on the follow-up album “Zenith”.

from Miami, United States
