Electric Beethoven's latest album 'Hear No Evil' is a funky and experimental journey through six of Beethoven's most iconic tunes. Recorded live at Color Red Studios in Denver, Colorado, the album showcases the band's improvisational prowess as they embark on a series of vamps and ramps to create music that surprises even themselves. Fans of Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, and Snarky Puppy among others will groove on their reimagining of the music of Beethoven.
Unlike their previous albums, which delved deeper into `Beethoven's vast repertoire, “Hear No Evil” focuses on well-known classics such as "Für Elise" and Piano Sonata No.8, also known as "Pathétique." But don't expect a faithful rendition - Reed Mathis and his bandmates give these classic pieces a funky facelift and dance floor makeover.
The album also features six remixes and rearrangements by guest artists including Michal Menert and Sidecar Tommy of Beats Antique. The result is a double LP that takes listeners on a soulful and funky journey that leads to unexpected places, igniting the mind, body, and spirit.
What is even better, not only is the album available on vinyl for the analog collectors, CD for the on-the-go crowd, but also as a high-resolution download for the audiophile funksters and dance floor jumpers. Electric Beethoven's playful and experimental approach in the studio creates music that is exciting and fresh. This 2022 release, “Hear No Evil” is a testament to the band's ability to blend Beethoven's classical genius with their electrifying and unique sound, creating something entirely new and unexpected.
