The Mellits Consort is an ensemble devoted to the music of Marc Mellits. It is an amplified group consisting of Violin, Cello, Electric Guitar, Marimba, and Keyboard. The music is both hard edged and rhythmic as well as lyrical and sultry. The repetitive nature of the sounds often propels the music forward, spiraling into groove patterns with soaring lyricism. The combinations of instrumentation and timbre often results in a unique scoring always aware of moving the music forward. The ensemble has thrilled audiences throughout the US as well as Europe, sometimes incorporating video into the concert.
