The Floating Opera Orchestra

The Floating Opera Orchestra

The Floating Opera Orchestra is the moniker of composer and multi-instrumentalist, Brandon Brown. Amidst a cinematic collage of every imaginable style and genre beats the heart of a shy, quirky musician fiercely clinging to tradition while actively blurring lines and causing a silent stir in a dwindling, shtick-driven music scene in Austin, Texas.

The sound of the Floating Opera Orchestra has been called a New Orleans paradigm with Slovakian undertones; Charles Mingus and Nina Rota dining with Tom Waits; a touch of Eastern European dark circuses; a vaudeville-inspired instrumental tapestry; a magnetic monster; a contagious soundtrack.

Difficult to categorize, yet easy to enjoy.

There is not one story, but a proliferation of characters that tantalize the listener with suggestions of vast scenarios and organic tapestries; such digressions are less the product of careless craft than of a lush and frantic imagination overwhelming its own project. Indeed.

(Also known as Brandon A. Brown & the Floating Opera Orchestra)
