Bio

 

The Obsessions Octet was founded in 2005 by Kent Sangster. a jazz saxophonist, and his wife Joanna Ciapka-Sangster, a classically trained violinist, out of their long-held desire to make music together.  This group is the most innovative, ambitious, crazy and satisfying project that they have undertaken to date.

 

The Octet consists of two quartets: a classical string quartet and a jazz quartet (sax-piano-bass-drums). The ensemble plays chamber-jazz over a mix of material that leaves space for improvisation. Although originating in different parts of the world, these eight unique musicians make their home in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
