Chris Corsano is a drummer who has been at the forefronts of free improvisation, avant-rock, and noise musics since the late 1990s. His dedication to collective improvisation has led to collaborations with all sorts of kindred spirits and appearances on over 150 records. He's worked with saxophonists like Paul Flaherty, Joe McPhee, and Evan Parker; string-aces Sir Richard Bishop, Okkyung Lee, and Jim O'Rourke; and one-of-a-kind artists like Björk, Ghédalia Tazartès, Merzbow, and Jandek. Constantly seeking to expand his sound beyond conventional notions of what drums can and can't do, Corsano attacks his kit with everything from cello strings stretched across his snare drum to contact microphones on hi-hats to a slew of extended techniques of his own creation. 
 
 
“Corsano, despite being arguably the most riotosly energetic and creative drummer in contemporary free jazz, does far more than merely bash his kit into submission. Playing loud does not mean abandoning subtlety, and Corsano’s sudden shifts of texture and dynamics are a wonder to behold”

COLD BATH STREET
 
Cold Bath Street's 'Dream of Space' concerts promoted their Sound Research Rebellion album and saw them working alongside staff of Alston Observatory and visual artist Anne Fox to create something really special. Compared to Bowie, Floyd, Can, Gong & Jethro Tull. 
 
"A unique and very special opportunity and experience"
Tim Saunders
