Theoretically speaking: Idiosyncratic band String Theory releases CD

(Continued)

The two tried playing as a duo for several years, but felt something was missing. Enter Helder, whose naturally elongated playing style complemented the band’s sound.

“We always kind of struggled playing as a duo with timing and having a full sound,” Hoehn said. “(Helder’s) meter and fullness have been extraordinary. He allows us to take off and do things we couldn’t do as a duo.”

As a trio, the band is also hoping to expand its live performances. They are collaborating with a local writer to combine instrumental music with poetry. They have also collaborated in the past with Mankato Mosaic, including the performance group’s upcoming presentation of “50 Shades of Winter,” which debuts Nov. 29.

“As we’ve moved along, all this stuff has evolved,” Schmidt said. “We’re getting to a point now where we’re starting to have our own sound.”
