SoundClouder of the Day | No Mates Ensemble

No Mates Ensemble is the musical project of Mat Ward from Hobart, Australia. His inspirations range from 20th century composers to 70’s funk to Frank Zappa. He creates music he calls “DIY Modern Classical.” ”I like woodwinds and can guarantee that there is too much percussion on almost everything I do,” he writes.

"Spider Race" is a fun track featuring woodwind and brass quintet, piano and drums, inspired by avant-garde composer John Zorn.

"It is impossible to put into words some of the extraordinary music i have come across on SoundCloud; such talent and willingness to share is a gift i cherish. Thank you to all, especially those that take the time to critique my stuff or explain and discuss their own work."
