Additional details

Gary War is an Avant-Garde musician born in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1979. His recordings combine tape and digital collage techniques with heavily synthesized electronic psychedelia, acid punk, musique concrete and certain elements of classical music, progressive rock and dance music into a mutant strain of damaged yet accessible future music. War is currently based in New York City and Gloucester, MA.

Free sound mavericks White Out first arose from the subterranean depths of New York's fading meat packing district in the fall of 1995. White Out's core nucleus of Lin Culbertson and Tom Surgal employ a unique array of instruments including: analog synthesizers, cast off effects units, electric autoharp, flute, expanded drum kit, singing bowls, springs, Cambodian shells, temple woodblocks, chains, metal scraps, air tubes, gongs, bells, whistles, etc. Shape-shifting from gig to gig, record to record, White Out never plays the same thing twice. Over the years White Out has cultivated an extended family of accompanists to join them on their sonic odyssey. These guest artists include: Jim O'Rourke, Thurston Moore, Nels Cline, William Winant, and Mike Watt among others.
