Inner Ear Brigade (IEB) is an ensemble of musicians based in the San Francisco Bay Area who play a unique mix of progressive rock, free jazz, experimental pop, all delivered through their originally detailed compositions and arrangements. The music is “fun, happy, accessible, and proggy.” Steeped with a vintage analog sensibility, effects processing, and synthesizers, IEB crafts their sounds from “ RIO elements (Rock In Opposition), Canterbury (Sound), and Zappa”. Bandleader/ guitarist/ composer Bill Wolter studied composition at Mills College with iconic avant-garde guitarist/composer Fred Frith, and has been involved in a wide variety of new music/creative music endeavors in the Bay Area. Inner Ear Brigade is the ensemble in which he displays in his uniquely original compositions — detailed epic musical odysseys that will take the listener for a journey through well-crafted songs and improvisation.
