Mayhem Circus Electric

Avant Groove      ---     Jazz!

Mayhem Circus Electric is a raucous improv band that makes excitement out of thin air and develops written themes with a singular purpose.  And just a hint of electric Miles Davis.  Lubricity captures the spirit of Mayhem Circus Electric in mid-flight with sonic celebrations of solid rhythmic invention underneath spiraling themes and counter-themes.   Metallic percussive fury complements exploratory bass clarinet.  Oh Yeah!

MCE takes chances in an aggressive musical exploration, but always gives you something to hold onto.  Sometimes a theme, sometimes just a strand of tonality, always interesting rhythms.  Just when it seems like things might get all abstract on you, the band takes you to a higher level of avant groove. 

Mayhem Circus Electric exploded out of the ever-expanding New Haven Improvisers Collective.
NHIC is a far-reaching collective of creative musicians forming into a particular group to play particular music in a particular moment.  NHIC is interaction, conflict, and harmony.
