BORBETOMAGUS Don Dietrich, saxofone; Jim Sauter, saxofone; Donald Miller, guitarra + Ravi Binning, harmónio e electrónica - na International House, em Filadélfia, a 4 de Março p.f.. Não se espera nada menos que extremos – o paroxismo. As estéticas do free jazz e do noise vão bem de braço dado.
The words loud and aggressive only begin to scratch the surface of this proto-punk free jazz band; Borbetomagus sets forth a sonic squall that obliterates and has been described as "a huge, overpowering, take-no-prisoners mass of sound." While participants on the downtown New York free improv scene have long thrived on chaos and extremes in volume and timbre, none of them got there before this upstate New York ensemble. Borbetomagus has been pursuing their noisy muse since the late 1970s. They have collaborated with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, Tristan Honsinger, Peter Kowald and others, and have been influential on many American free jazz and noise musicians.
