The Special edition of GotHGSB will consist of founding members:
David Grollman is a percussionist from NYC who performs freely improvised music. He performs in art galleries, tiki bars, and venues of curious ambience made more curious by his mongrel sounds. David bows, scrapes, blows, slaps, rubs, caresses, abuses, and generally tests the limits of his instrument. Anything is game. Anything may be a participant if the musical conversation calls for it. Artist, instrument, audience, and environment become ambiguous terms, conspiring in a theatrical exploration of chance dynamics and serendipitous exchanges.
Andy Haas has performed, recorded and collaborated with many musicians who were at the center of the creative avant garde music coming out of NYC by the ’90s, such as John Zorn, Fred Frith, Ikue Mori, Thurston Moore, Marc Ribot, and more. Haas was an original member of Toronto’s Martha & the Muffins, which formed in 1977. He played on the first 3 LPs for Virgin Records, including the saxophone solo on the international hit song “Echo Beach.” After recording the 3rd Muffin LP with producer Daniel Lanois, Haas left the band and relocated to New York City.
