||Beat Tectonics CD (2008) |
Oscillators discography The Oscillators is a unique and progressive group composed of some of DC's top jazz musicians. The group seeks to break boundaries and forge a new sound in today's ever-fragmented world of modern jazz. The Oscillators' repertoire is almost exclusively original, its sound anchored by syncopated bass and drum rhythms that provide a strong canvas on which the guitar and tenor sax paint harmonies and colors, enhanced with samples and live electronics. The collective sound is a tapestry of interwoven rhythms and textures that provide the listener an engaging and innovative sound. The music is a dichotomy of complexity and simplicity, and is an amalgamation of the group's influences and experiences.
The Oscillators- Charles Ostle (drums), Glen Oliff (bass), Matt Rippetoe (saxophone), and John Lee (guitar) all grew up and currently live in the greater Washington DC area. The group first came together in 2006 and have been actively developing their unique sound ever since. In 2007 The Oscillators won Takoma Park's annual Jazz Band Brawl and headlined that summer's Takoma Park Jazz Festival. The group's first CD was released in 2008 and is entitled Beat Tectonics, which alludes to the dynamic rhythmic shifts that occur within ...

Oscillators songs And then it was said, "Here is Hi-Fidelity, use it well my children!"
And so those crazy Oscillators took to the studio for their Sophomore effort, Incog*neat*o!.
This time 'round, the amps are louder, the harmonies sweeter, the recording crisper, and the suspense greater.
How will the Oscillators top the stunning success of their first Stereorrific release? The secret answer : They don't have to, they're Incog*neat*o! They don't have to hide their go-go garage instincts for anyone.
This is what it sounds like: Miss Mary eases over to the microphone for a few numbers, Gimmie, Gimmie, Something Like You, and the beat sound of Don't Look Back, while Samantha tears up the rockers in the teenage anthem, No Way! and the high school drama, Revenge on Sandy.
Joel does some Mickey Dolenz (ala Stepping Stone) on the run away track, Be Mine Now and a little Mick Jagger on the days of the week song on the record, I Can't Wait 'Til Friday Comes.
And Matt, he rides the low-end surf waves on numbers like Doug Buggy and the title track, Incog*neat*o! (Everybody knows its Wendy on the drums!)
They're back, in a brand new Hi-Fi Adventure. Check 'em out, and discover what's Incog*neat*o!
