Faux Pas Quartet is an Indianapolis based free form improvisation ensemble whose sole purpose is the spontaneous expression of the unconscious.
The resulting music, quite literally, comes from the same stuff of which dreams are made. Archetypes of the psyche rising unfettered through the medium of the unconscious and becoming manifest in the shared conscious reality. The music is soothing, agitating, floating, rhythmic, funny, scary, sad, angry, melodic and atonal.
Relax, open up and take the time to flow with the music. Above all, give yourself permission to explore the irrational.
