The Ives Band works to innovate a new approach to familiar melodies. The band plays multiple melodies simultaneously, usually in contrasting keys and tempi, creating musical collages inspired by Charles Ives, Luciano Berio, John Oswald. Melodies come from well-known folk tunes, pop songs, classical music, children's songs, etc.; anything that is familiar or cliche in contemporary American culture. Melodies remain intentionally recognizable, while the experience of hearing melodies is radically reconstructed. Music is directed and arranged by composer and pianist Andrew Jamieson.

-Zachary Hazen, and Mia Bella D'Augelli, violins
-Joshua Marshall, tenor saxophone
-Andrew Jamieson, Brett Carson and Ben Zucker, keyboards
-Roger Kim, Guitar
-Aaron Oppenheim, latpop
-Tim DeCillis, percussion
