In Ancient Greek music theory, "ekmeles" is an adjective used to describe tones of indefinite pitch and intervals with complex ratios, tones "not appropriate for musical usage." In New York City, a new vocal ensemble breathing life into those disallowed tones new and old, praised for their "extraordinary sense of pitch" and "exquisite clarity of diction" by the New York Times. New York is home to a vibrant instrumental New Music scene, with a relative paucity of vocal music. Ekmeles was founded to fill the gap by presenting new a cappella repertoire for solo voices, and by collaborating with these instrumental ensembles.
