Labyrinthine and florid melodies streaming over alien funk counterpoint make the ecstatic music of Blarvuster, the latest brainchild of critically acclaimed bagpiper/composer Matthew Welch. Inspired equally by Celtic lines and South East Asian ensemble textures as well as avant-garde rock and minimalism, Blarvuster’s line-up of some of the brightest young
stars in the New York experimental scene ardently evoke a seamless hybrid of musical languages that issues forth its own fictional tradition.
