Brendan Murray is a self-taught musician living in Medford, MA. He has actively recorded and performed with electronics since 1999. He regards his music as a balance between spontaneous sound making and compositional rigor, with an emphasis on drones and repetition. He records and processes instruments and tapes until all traces of instrumentality are blurred, leaving only large blocks of pure sound.


He has recorded four full-length CDs, four cdrs and two cassettes for various record labels in the United States and Europe. Murray has also toured extensively throughout the United States as a solo performer and as a member of various improvising ensembles.


Brown Wing Overdrive is an electronic trio from Brooklyn specializing in improvisation.  Members include Chuck Bettis (electronics and vocals), Mike IQ Jones (electronics and objects), and Derek Morton (electronics and banjo)  Between them, they have deep histories in punk rock and electronic improvisational music.  Their music has been described as "amorphous ebb-and-flow ooze rippling over No Neckian pick, blurt, and throttle".   Their debut CD, "We Have Issues: live at Issue Project Room", is available on Living Myth Records. 


Hope to see you there!
