BoorBaar would be a Contemporary Percussion Ensemble, if such a thing
It was formed in 2005 by some "Jedi Rhythm Freaks", AKA Cory Beers, John Wash IV, and Mike Robbins, who compose and perform weird, complex
yet groovy rhythms for drums and other objects meant for striking, as
well as for some items not meant for striking (but struck anyways).
About the instruments:
Currently, they 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 referred 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-washer, 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 often played by
several or all of them at once.
About the music:
BoorBaar is tasked with the creation and performance of new original works unusually high in weird rhythmic relationships, fast interlocking rhythmic grids, High Stimulus, and things on top of other things (figuratively and literally speaking). That is, rhythms superimposed upon one another in manners that might seem unlikely/uncanny/insane. BoorBaar nonetheless dig it when folks dance to them. Irregular music to dance to, coming soon...
BoorBaar's audiences are extremely diverse.
We are available
to perform to any audience.
