Chris Corsano is one of the most sought-after percussionists in the nebulous sphere of intentional aural insanity that constitutes free music and its various iterations as noise, psychedelia, and having-something-to-do-with-jazz.
Since the late '90s, Corsano has performed solo and in infinite combinations of players -- both heartily obscure and incredibly popular. In the early 2000s, his partnership with free jazz sax shredder Paul Flaherty thrust his singular technique and experimental methods onto a higher platform of notoriety and esteem. Since then, he has collaborated with everyone from day-and-night trippers like Six Organs of Admittance, acoustic diviners like Matt Valentine and Erika Elder, and even Björk.
Corsano will be in town for a string of dates around South Florida (complete information after the jump), including a stop at Radio-Active Records in Fort Lauderdale. We gave him a ring to talk shop before the gig.
