Bing and Ruth Premiere Debut Single "Rails"

Brooklyn band Bing and Ruth is an 11-piece ensemble led by composer and pianist David Moore.  Described by the New York Times as "making the most of layered and atmospheric melody," the band utilizes clarinets, voices, cellos, and a buffet of other acoustic instruments to craft expansive soundscapes and quiet microtonal textures.  Formed among friends in 2006, they have self-released two records, the "Bing and Ruth" EP in 2006, and the full-length "Kentile Floors" in 2007.

In it's young life the ensemble has garnered a reputation for unique and engaging life performances, with recent shows in the New York area including the Wordless Music Series, the MATA Festival, the WFMU Festival, Stochastic Brooklyn, and the Darmstadt New Music Series at Issue Project Room.  They have shared the stage with a wide variety of performers among whom include Múm, Max Richter, and So Percussion.

Additionally they have become known for their habit of performing in unique spaces not normally associated with music; places like an abandoned meat locker, a rural chicken coop, a vacant apartment, and a warehouse rooftop.

David, along with Bing and Ruth, was recently commissioned to create two new multimedia works with filmmaker Sébastien Cros that saw their premier at the 2009 MATA Festival in New York City.

The ensemble has recently completed work on a new full-length album with an expected release in 2010.
