The Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble is an internationally recognized new music group that combines acoustic instruments, electronic hardware, composed material, and structured improvisation. Hear analog synthesizer treated as a rare and unpredictable performance instrument! The Ensemble’s contemporary electro-acoustic music is performed and recorded live, with no overdubs or sequencing.
The Ensemble has played chamber concert series, new music series, galleries, and alternative performance spaces nationwide, including The Tank (NYC), AS220 (Providence RI), The Lilypad (Cambridge MA), Meridian Gallery (SF), Cafe Du Nord (SF), and Trinity Chamber Concerts (Berkeley).
The Ensemble has presented extensive programs of live music to experimental film. In 2010, the Ensemble attracted global attention with concerts of Depeche Mode’s Violator, performed entirely live, start-to-finish, with a complement of strings arranged by Jack Curtis Dubowsky, to mark the album’s 20th anniversary.
This June the Ensemble releases its third full length album and CD, Jack Curtis Dubowsky Ensemble III. It continues the tradition of a brainy mix of nocturnal ambient tracks, slow jams, and funky krautrock.
The Ensemble features Jack Curtis Dubowsky on Roland Jupiter Six and bass, and Fred Morgan on drums and percussion. Dubowsky and Morgan met at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and have played together as the Ensemble since 2008. Dubowsky has an extensive catalog of concert music distributed online by Sheet Music Plus and Theodore Front Musical Literature, Inc.
