The Black Monument Ensemble is the brainchild of Damon Locks. The ensemble is like nothing ever heard before, nothing ever imagined. This is what we should always expect from Locks; something unique.
2019 saw the release of the transcending Where The Future Unfolds (International Anthem), a release filled with a cornucopia of soulful melodies and aged samples. A politicalized release without the unnecessary rhetoric that detracts from the humanistic point at hand. Today Damon Locks’ Black Monument Ensemble shares the live performance video to its new single “Stay Beautiful, which once again is breathtaking. Harmonies abound throughout with a seemingly haphazard percussion that coalesces with wind instruments and Locks’ electronics.
