The Ambient Chamber Music of Bing & Ruth in Echoes Podcast
There isn’t anyone named Bing or Ruth in the band called Bing & Ruth, and their sound is as mysterious as their name. Headed up by pianist David Moore, they mix reed instruments, two double basses, cello and delay electronics in a haunting, hypnotic ambient chamber music sound, influenced by Brian Eno, minimalism, Arvo Part, and ambient jazz, and born from composed improvisation. Last year they released their album, Tomorrow Was the Golden Age, a title that is as enigmatic as their music. They talk about their unusual and contemplative path.
