Welcome to entreat's mp3 site. We're a very diverse band.. At times, an experimental processed acoustic project. Sometimes a stark and emotional ethereal band. At other times, an electronic pop band..
Why this name?
We basically just threw out a bunch of one word names, and entreat (sort of randomly chosen for The Cure's live album of the same name) won.
Do you play live?
No. Entreat is currently a studio project.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It has allowed independent bands to receive international recognition and bring their music directly to their target audience.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
It would depend on the terms.
Band History:
Members Joshua Heinrich and Jaroslaw Myszewski formed entreat in October 1999 with two somewhat contradictory goals: 1. To explore experimental electronic and processed acoustic music and 2. To create more standard ethereal and electronic music for mainstream consumption.. These two goals led to a rather diverse project that at times can seem like several completely seperate bands. Some songs fall in the category of danceable electronic pop tracks like "Un Mundo Perfecto" while others are marked by Heinrich's stark minimalist guitar and ethereal vocals complimented by Myszewski's subtle electronics.. And still others fall in the category of experimental electronic music such as "Piece for Processed Acoustics and Peach Schnapps", a processed acoustic piece that was very well received by the academic electronic music community. A CD release of some kind has been in the works for around 3 years of sporadic writing and recording sessions but never finished, and in 2003 Myszewski moved, turning the project into something of a long-distance collaboration with even fewer recording sessions. Entreat, however, still exists and a CD (probably an EP) is still in the works. We just don't know when it will finally be released.
