A band that makes abstract deconstruction music.

An experiment in playing music and trying to come up with something else.

  • Tom Ray - Vocals, Keyboards, Percussion
  • Rob Gugle - Drums, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards
  • Cliff Hammer - Bass, Guitar
  • Eric Brusewitz - Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals

Lorenzo’s Music is a creative commons open-source band from Madison WI. Creating music using only open-source tools and software like Ardour and Ubuntu Studio and have created a method to use GitHub for music as a collaborative platform.

The music library has been used in video games, short films, and podcasts. They are also the only band to have ever been featured on Forbes.

One way to describe our music would be - it's like if Tom Waits tried to create an emo new wave band. It's abstract deconstruction music.

Lorenzo's Music itself takes an angle of being very abstract in a way that we deconstruct music out of quick melodies and song structures that we come up with.

We deconstruct everything chopping up recorded parts and moving them around in the song like a collage.

It's kind of like William S. Burroughs when he made the book Naked Lunch. He cut up different words and sentences and pasted them together to see what they would be like. 

His was a collage of words and ours is a collage of music.

When thinking of what our music is, do we call it indie rock? Do we call it alternative? Is it experimental rock? Art Rock? Probably... It's just something that feels natural to want to do when we create.
