Nathaniel Brennan

I am currently active in 3 projects. SECTION 35, Obituary, and CRUUDEUCES (which is longtime collaboration with Seamus Williams.) I have toured several times since 2009. Stylistically I integrate elements of noise and found sound with free jazz, mostly prepared reeds (alto/ tenor saxophones and clarinet.) Creating tape loops, deconstructing field recordings and modifying electronics are what I’ve been up to with my most recent solo project, Obituary. I have run a cassette label called ghetto naturalist series (GNS) since 2009 focusing on a wide variety of experimental sound. (Greenfield MA)
