VICTOIRE is a new chamber-rock ensemble founded by composer/pianist Missy Mazzoli. This group, a stirring blend of winds, strings, keyboards and lo-fi electronics, was recently dubbed "an all-star, all-female quintet" by Time Out New York, and was described by Pitchfork as "so good… a pleasingly accessible entrée into the world of pseudo-classical music." Victoire performs Mazzoli's distinct blend of dreamy post rock, quirky minimalism and rich romanticism. Since forming in 2008 they have shared the stage with Tortoise, Twi the Humble Feather, Redhooker, Bing and Ruth, performing at many of New York's top new music venues including The Bang on a Can Marathon, Galapagos, the Tank, The Stone and the Whitney Museum. In spring of 2009 they became the first classical artist to be featured on "eMusic.com Selects". They released their debut EP, A Door into the Dark, on eMusic.com in March 2009, and will release a full-length album with New Amsterdam Records in 2010.
