"In 2003, trombonist and composer Brett Sroka began exploring beyond his jazz background and became fascinated with electronic music, surrounding himself with synthesizers and software. As he sought to reconcile the six hundred years of technology between trombone and computer he also found, in Carl Maguire and Shawn Baltazor, musicians of similarly elastic and adventurous temperaments. As they played throughout New York City and the Northeast US over the next few years an idiosyncratic dynamic began to cohere and Ergo was born. Ergo's music is fresh and different -- jazz musicians exploring the boundaries of electronic music -- and one of stark melodic beauty, enveloping electro-acoustic texture and empathic imagination. It has been compared to music as diverse as Duke Ellington, Autechre, Sigur Ros, Sun Ra, and King Crimson."
