ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

BoorBaar would be a Contemporary Percussion Ensemble, if such a thing is possible...

It was formed in 2005 by some "Jedi Rhythm Freaks", AKA Cory Beers, John Wash IV, and Mike Robbins. We compose and perform weird, complex yet groovy rhythms for drums and other objects meant for striking, as well as for some items not originally meant for striking.

About the instruments:
Currently, we use tom-toms, some other drums which resemble tom-toms, some tiny toms cranked up to their structural limits (spocks), some Chinese cymbals and bells (very thick, loud ones) as well as the various parts of a device constructed by us that we refer to as "The Entrail Strainer", or Strank for short. It is made of one very large propane tank, upon which is mounted the former interior of a machine clothes-drier, upon which are further mounted six magnesium plates of distinct pitches (at least that's what we think they are...), and atop all that are mounted several pieces of sheet metal, a.k.a the crasher. This device is usually played by several of us at once.

About the music:
BoorBaar is particularly concerned with weird rhythmic relationships, vagaries of perception, fast interlocking rhythmic grids, High Stimulus, and putting things on top of other things (figuratively and literally speaking). That is, superimposing rhythms upon one another in manners that might seem unlikely/uncanny/insane. We nonetheless dig it when folks dance to them. Irregular music to dance to, coming soon...
