tEEEm are an improvised music ensemble comprised of Zeke Ruckman (drum set/electronics), Adam Halliwell (electric guitar) and Josh Kelly (saxophone). The band explores concepts of 60's era free jazz, combining intellectual thought with outward expression of emotion in the instrumentation of saxophone, electric guitar and drums. The music draws heavily on free jazz concepts, but embraces the contemporary influence of sample-based and electronic music. The band aims to create music that feeds off energy which builds through the act of creation.
The music of Omelette pivots between written and improvised music-making. The written serves to suggest a direction, feeling or colour, the improvised to see this idea and sound to the next one and so on. There is no expectation but to listen and trust. We like the music to dance and sing. We hear it as our folk music, made in the moment. Although influenced by all the music we listen to there is a nod to the folk music traditions of East and West Africa, Persia and Cuba, Miles Davis, Tony Allen, Ornette Coleman, Morton Feldman, Jimi Hendrix, Fela Kuti, Little Richard, Aretha Franklin, .................. you get the picture.
