Through exploring the many realms of stylistic writing for her own band, Erica Telisnor has since created a spinoff of her
jazz and fusion quartet, Abstract Scenario, called the String Alternative. In the new band, Telisnor utilizes instrumentations that reflect the classical spectrum. The result is a unique hybrid of 21st century classical, jazz, and world rhythms and styles. The String Alternative stays distinctly in pursuit of making music that ultimately "grooves from the heart."
