Brendan Eder Ensemble
Today we’re listening to the Brendan Eder Ensemble, a project from LA-based drummer and composer Brendan Eder. Since graduating from Santa Fe University of Art & Design in 2009, Eder has published a lot of music across film scores and original works.1 As Brendan Eder Ensemble – a “crossover classical chamber group”2 – he makes mellow, jazzy instrumental vignettes that are composed like micro scores. That’s the style of the “cozy concept album”3 Cape Cod Cottage from 2021, which calls to mind Ender’s fellow Angelino John Carroll Kirby. We’re also playing the Ensemble’s self-titled 2015 debut LP, which is a bit more lively.
Have a really nice Wednesday.
Eder composed the score for director Ari Aster’s breakout short film The Strange Thing About the Johnsons.
