Blues In Space is both all and nothing you might think, often chaotic and always an intense musical experience. Led by New York City based cellist, Rubin Kodheli, Blues in Space is quickly rising to the forefront of a new avant-rock movement.
What people are saying:
“Rubin Kodheli is a virtuoso. He is a true artist who is passionate about not only pushing the boundaries of his talent, but also exploring new frontiers in music not only as an interpretive artist, but as a creator….”
“Kodheli's playing has been described as ‘Hendrix –like in its smearing vibrato”
-Nate Chinen, Village Voice
“Are Blues in Space a metal band? Art-rock? Avant garde? Yes, all of the above
and more. Bands like Blues in Space make a good battering ram: they destroy
boundaries. It would make as much sense for them to do Bang on a Can as it
would for them to do Ozzfest or for that matter take up residency at a place like Barbes.”
