The Broken Trap Ensemble is Kristina Dutton, Daniel Pearce, Teddy Rankin-Parker, and Aram Shelton.

They explore the group dynamic through the use of strings, reeds, and percussion, employing traditional and experimental techniques to create an aural latticework with slyly dissembled origins, each instrument reflecting the timbre and texture of the others as the group burrows into a singular sound.

Debut album on Astral Spirits in Fall 2014.
