Astral Spirits is excited to present the third tape release from Austin-based group SSBT. “247 Main” was recorded on tour in the pacific northwest in 2014. SSBT is a free improvisation trio of Chris Cogburn (percussion, No Idea Festival founder), Steve Jansen (guitar, saxophone, tape manipulation, worked with Frank Rosaly Christina Carter, Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten, James Fella and more) & Parham Daghighi (an Iranian-American artist who focues on electric guitar, alto saxophone & vocal/text work rooted in the Persian language).
Each side of the tape presents different sides to SSBT’s personality, from the inital free jazz ecstasy of “Pockets” to the minimal, electro-acoustic explorations of “Cool Problems” and many other places in between. Throughout the 40 minutes of the tape sounds emanate from all corners that defy strict definitions. Instruments & sounds meld into one another without knowledge of their exact origins. A growing empathy has become quite apparent (especially on 247 Main) among these three improvisers…it has only grown stronger through touring & playing together over the past few years. SSBT has roots from noise to free jazz to electronic music and beyond but they are fast on their way to creating their own unique sound world that defies categorization.
