    The Angel and the Brute Sing Songs of Rapture is the first studio release by Dialectical Imagination, the piano/drum duo of Eli Wallace and Rob Pumpelly. Eli and Rob have developed a unique form of musical expression they call "ecstatic music" which radically integrates the creative spirit of free-improvisation with the structural integrity of composition. The album comes on a faux audio cassette tape which is actually a USB flash drive which can be re-used and which makes a great conversation piece for tea and sandwiches with your auntie. The drive is fully loaded with high quality WAV files and album art by Free Light Design. It is also available as a digital download.

    This recording is the first of a 2 volume series. Volume 2 (The Angel and the Brute Sing Songs of Wrath) is scheduled for release mid 2017

about

"The music that Dialectical Imagination play ... heeds to some invisible, intuitive force that guides them through tonality and dissonance, barren and overflowing."
-S. Victor Aaron (SomethingELSE!)

"The Angel and the Brute Sing Songs of Rapture presents musical enigmas to be sure, but it reliably spikes with energy and intelligence that cannot be overlooked."
-Karl Achermann (All About Jazz)

"... six free flowing improvisations that mix melody with majesty and mayhem."
-George W. Harris (Jazz Weekly)
