"Exposing New Music To The Blog-Reading Masses"

WATCH: The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble In The Studio

Imagine if you went to a symphony concert, and instead of Mozart and Chopin, you heard songs that wouldn’t sound out of place at a Dead Maus, Skrillex or David Guetta set. Well get out your glow sticks (but shut off your cell phones), because Berlin-based group The Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble prove electronic music can translate to the concert hall. Visual proof after the jump.

Using electro music as a jumping off point, the band, which includes  piano, tympani, harp, strings and horns, have explored a full spectrum of sounds on two albums, 2010′s You Make Me Real and 2011’s Mr. Machine.  The band is working on their third album, which Daniel Brandt says will go beyond club fodder.

“With our

first two albums, part of the creative inspiration for us was interpreting electronic dance music using acoustic instruments,” says Daniel Brandt. “As that’s not so much of an experiment for us anymore, there’s a sense of freedom on the new album. We’re recording using anything at our disposal, working with more vocalists, and conceiving of our music as songs, as opposed to something that necessarily has to work on the dance floor.”

Stateside fans and curious onlookers alike will be able to see Brandt Brauer in all their  ten-piece ensemble glory for the first time with a special Lincoln Center engagement. The band previously played for American audiences at Coachella and MoogFest. Watch the group in action and view their other live dates below.
