Sprawling LA houses the improvisatory and songs focused ensemble Surrealestate. Founded in 1996, Surrealestate includes musicians who result from multifarious Traditional western and non-Western musical backgrounds. Free-form improvisations, self-generated ratings, and interpretations of existing compositions by such performers as American firebrand Charles Ives and jazz star Ornette Coleman are game terrain because of this sax, electric guitar, bass, and percussion toting ensemble. Surrealestate provides performed in a number of locations throughout California, from free galleries and rock and roll clubs to songs festivals and senior high school gymnasiums. An initial Compact disc released in 1998, Contrafactum, catches the imaginative group waistline deep in sonic explorations. It could have produced Magritte, Dali, and Ernst very pleased.
