Wish You Were There: MASS Ensemble at Sleepless Night

After Sleepless Night in Miami Beach this past Saturday, Crossfade's Twitter friends (let's follow each other, I'm at @Crossfade_SFL) and, uh, real-life people were raving about a performance by MASS Ensemble. This Malibu, California-based quartet performs a sort of global, downtempo trip-hop kind of thing, but the musicians do so with "sculptural instruments" they've designed themselves. This includes the awesome "earth harp," which was formed on Saturday by looping some bungee cord-type things for strings over the top of a building. Amazing.

Here's a video of their set in Miami from YouTube, by Tomas Loewy Photography, or user coolpoolmedia.
