Darcy James Argue

Great article on Darcy James Argue in the Boston Herald, all about his DIY jazz orchestra that plays a conglomerated metachronistic music he labels as Steampunk:

“My approach has been to take this very old-school instrumentation and hack it to try to force it to play music it wasn’t really designed to do, and use it to re-create electronic music effects acoustically,” said Argue, who studied with NEC orchestra guru Bob Brookmeyer and earned a master’s degree in 2002. “I am definitely inspired by steampunk ideas about our relationship to technology (and) the whole do-it-yourself aesthetic.”
