INDIE ENSEMBLE AUDITION INFO

Please be prepared to play an original song of yours or a cover of something by any of the following artists: Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, St Vincent, Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear, Head and the Heart, Alt J, Lorde, TV on the Radio, Beck, or any other group you deem appropriate.

Indie Ensemble explores the large stylistic realm of indie rock — it can have elements of choral music, folk, experimental guitar noise, electronic keyboard-driven pop, retro styles, minimalism, and hip hop, to name only a few related styles. Participants will explore a variety of covers in an effort to figure out an aesthetic identity as a creative unit, work on original material, and perform in public.

Audition materials:

  • Rhythm section instruments  learn both songs
  • Vocalists  choose one to memorize & present as if this was a performance

“TWO WEEKS” – GRIZZLY BEAR

“RAW EXIT” – POLICIA
