The Motet

The Motet is a world-class ensemble that whips audiences into a whirling frenzy using sheer impromptu force. The rhythms are spontaneous and textured and the beats are hard-driving-- energy the band uses to create a repertoire between themselves and the audience that is rarely seen in today's world of manufactured rock. The Motet consecrates the ground on which dance music meets free-form improvisation, and the audience responds to the primal, sacred sound. While their influences are easily recognized, their overall sound defies categorization. At the heart of the band is Watts, who single-handedly composes and arranges all of the band's music. Therefore, much of the distinctive character of the Motet's sound comes from having complex compositions created from, and revolving around, a drummer's perspective.
