About Angels in the Chamber
Angels in the Chamber is unique under the heavens. Featuring Garry Novikoff (piano, guitar & vocals); Pamela Sklar, (flute & alto flute); Enid Blount Press (clarinet & bass clarinet); and Marc Wager (French horn), the band weaves elements of rock, pop, classical, improvisational and atmospheric music into a highly original genre all its own. Their material co-features originals as well as inventive covers from the 1960s and 70s; the golden age of what was called art rock or progressive rock. Their new debut recording Angels in the Chamber has been released recently.
Angels in the Chamber were finalists in the WNYC Battle of the Boroughs concert at the Greene Space hosted by WQXR‘s Terrance McNight, and were featured on Bob Sherman’s radio show Woody’s Children on WFUV in New York. Their debut recording Angels in the Chamber (2018) includes poignant originals, band arrangements of a Jethro Tull tune and music set to an Emily Dickinson poem.
