Pronunciation: \ˈtan-jəntEtymology: Latin tangent-, tangens, present participle of tangere to touch

1. A sudden digression or change of course

The Grand Tangent pushes the scope of instrumental music. Composed of four core players and a rotating list of accomplished guest artists, the Tangent’s music blends across genres and creates a fresh sound with influences from Jazz, Hip Hop, Blues, Classical, World, Metal, Electronic Music and Trip Hop.

Officially formed in 2007 while students at the Berklee College of Music, The Tangent spent many a cold winter day rehearsing and jamming in the basement of an Allston house. It was here they noticed the relationship between the music they were creating and the color and atmosphere of the basement. Experimenting with colored light bulbs and collective band visualizations, The Grand Tangent developed their sound through group improvisations and intensive writing sessions.

For the last three years, The Grand Tangent has been active in The East Coast performance scene, playing at many well-known venues in Boston and New York. In May 2009, the band was chosen as a featured performer in support of independent film, “The Why “( The Grand Tangent is currently spread between Boston, Atlanta, and Los Angeles and is actively pursuing performance dates and licensing opportunities with other mediums and artists.
