• Show Bio for Kevin Drumm
"Kevin Drumm is an experimental musician based in Chicago, United States
Emerging from the city's improvised music scene, in the 1990s he became one of the world's pre-eminent prepared guitar players. Since then his work has expanded to include electroacoustic compositions and live electronic music made with laptop computers and analog modular synthesizers. His early recordings contain mostly sparse, quiet sounds; recent works have been more loud and dense.
Drumm has collaborated with many artists working in similar fields, including Japanese guitarist Taku Sugimoto, multi-instrumentalist and producer Jim O'Rourke, and many European improvisers such as Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and German trumpeter Axel Dörner. He has also worked with the artist group Simparch, composing a piece for their installation Spec, shown at Documenta XI in Kassel, Germany and at the Renaissance Society in Chicago. Drumm has also worked with saxophonist Ken Vandermark's Territory Band, which brings together American and European players who work in both jazz and free improvisation.:-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Drumm)

sample the album:
"Originally released in an edition of tour-only CD-Rs by harrowing sound artist Kevin Drumm himself in 2012, The Back Room is five tracks of the harsher side of Drumm's always dark sound world. Electronic feedback, clipping fuzz, haunted delay sounds, and a perpetual, often nauseating din are broken up by brief stretches of distant bell sounds that get drenched in feedback before too long. Sharp and formless, The Back Room is noise without hope. Its painful textures shift from one dark path to another rapidly, tricking the listener into thinking there's a way out of Drumm's circular maze."-Fred Thomas, All Music
