brendan murray:

Brendan Murray is a self-taught musician living in Somerville, 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. He is actively involved with long distancecollaborations with musicians and sound artists such as Seth Nehil, Richard Garet and Chuck Bettis.
