MASS Ensemble

Tonight was my second time in my life I have been lucky enough to experience one of the coolest most unique musical groups I have ever seen. The musical group's name is MASS Ensemble. And tonight, like in the past, I have seen and experienced the group at the Main Street Arts Festival in Fort Worth, Texas.

The group is indescribable as most of the instruments that they play are unique to MASS. They are most famous for their large Earth Harp with unique wire strings that can be stretched many many yards...unfortunatly tonight they didn't have the Earth harp (which I had seen last time I saw them), but tonight they did have the boat harp which was 25 feet long. This string instruments they play are performed on with resin covered gloves. Also tonight they had the drum orb which is a huge round metal structure with multiple drum heads and the aquaguitar, an instrument that incorporates three unique guitars into one.

Check out their website to see and hear really interesting video and sounds of this very eclectic musical group.

Wish I could seen them. Only day I had free to go to the Arts Festival was Thursday. Man it sucks working six days a week sometimes...
