In the infectiously ecstatic fervor of Blarvuster's music, Scottish bagpipes, Balinese gamelan, minimalism, improvisation and rock converge in a labyrinthine, multi-textural sound. Blarvuster will be performing the Mosaic of Iridescence (2010) at a CD Release Party and free Concert to be held at Zebulon, 258 Wythe Avenue in Brooklyn, NY on December 8th, 2010 at 8pm. Also on the bill will be Ches Smith (www.myspace.com/chessmith) and the David Crowell Ensemble (www.myspace.com/davecrowell).

Led by Matthew Welch, Blarvuster (www.blarvuster.com)
has been a mainstay at New York venues including John Zorn's The Stone, Issue Project Room, Zebulon, and The Cornelia Street Cafe and has delivered commanding commissioned performances at The Kitchen, MOMA's PS1, Roulette, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (EMPAC), and The Western Front (Vancouver). Blarvuster, whose self-titled debut CD was released on John Zorn's Tzadik label (11/2010)
, presents a completely unique form of music played with extreme virtuosity and sensitivity by a stellar line-up of some of the brightest young musicians in New York.
