“Immersive... Guitarists station themselves around the perimeter of the room and let it rip, producing harmonic overtones similar to those heard in Gregorian chant... Immense...” --WASHINGTON POST

DC experimental music collective BOAT BURNING plays "maximal minimalism," an intricate hybrid of composition and improvisation for electric guitars where elemental passages performed on a profusion of instruments -- sometimes 70 or more -- produce shimmering towers of densely-stacked harmonics. The result is powerful, evocative music that combines the widescreen, panoramic sweep of classical with the sheer physical thrall of punk.

Led by founder / guitarist Andras Fekete, Boat Burning's core ensemble includes guitarists Norm Veenstra (TONE) and Geordie Grindle (The Teen Idles); Jonathan Matis (DC Improvisers Collective) and Robin Diamond on guitar and keys; and Mark Sherman on percussion.

Boat Burning's debut ep, produced by Mission of Burma's Roger Miller and recorded at Inner Ear Studios by legendary Dischord Records engineer Don Zientara, will be released December 2017.
