Instrumental band Sound Tribe Sector 9 will bring its layered sonic landscapes, developed melodic movements and deep groove sensibilities at 8 p.m. Oct. 26 to the State Theatre.
The music is simultaneously progressive and retrospective. It draws from the core creative values of the jazz greats and the funk-soul innovators while utilizing modern advancements in music production, basically just getting wicked with whatever they can make a sound with.
In speaking of his interaction with the band during performances earlier this year, Perry Farrell stated that STS9 "speaks in the future tense."
A loyal and musically open-minded fan base around the world has helped STS9 become one of the few groups to find success as independent, instrumental artists.
Embracing a near-constant touring schedule, including performances at Japan's Fuji Rock Festival, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Red Rocks, and Austin City Limits, STS9 has carved a niche of their own in a crowded industry. Through the music, the band covers a wide spectrum of styles and influences.
To date, STS9 has released 10 studio albums, all currently on its own 1320 label.
STS9 has defined a songwriting style that approaches composition through sound sculpture. Through this process, they have found a welcomed balance and structure to complement their approach to live performance and improvisation.
