Smoke - Music of Marc Mellits

Smoke - Music of Marc Mellits

by New Music Detroit

Whether you call it visceral or rockin’, the music of Chicago-based composer Marc Mellits is never less than smokin’ hot. In this album of ensemble works, New Music Detroit (NMD) not only finds the groove, it shakes it.

SMOKE is the culmination of a long and fruitful relationship between NMD and Mellits.

The four works - three of which have not been previously recorded - display Mellits’ unique spirit and virtuosity in an album that spans a full spectrum of emotion — an eclectic combination of driving rhythms, soaring lyricism, and colorful orchestrations that all combine to communicate directly with the listener.
