Artist Information


The two create instrumental songs that range from passive, ambient soundscapes to violent crescendos and use the spaces in between to build and deconstruct transient melodies within each piece.

1939 Ensemble are an instrumental duo from Portland, OR.  With an unusual Line-Up: Drums, Vibraphone & Noise.  Drawing influences from Krautrock, Jazz & No Wave, 1939 Ensemble moves between ominous dissonance noise to sharp bombastic beats.

The duo features Jose Medeles and David Coniglio.
