The Happy Valley Band is a cover band like you've never heard before. They play strictly notated machine deconstructions of popular tunes, filtered through the brain of a computer. You'll hear James Brown backed by a simmering Sun Ra Arkestra, Madonna with a jittery freak-out synth rhythm section, and Herb Alpert with a Tijuana Brass that must have been led by Charles Ives. Their debut album ORGANVM PERCEPTVM, five years in the making, will be out on Santa Cruz label Indexical in 2016.
Electromadness features new works for flute, violin, cello, percussion, and electronics composed by students of Mark Applebaum’s Music 123 and Music 223 seminars.
