Borbetomagus: A Pollock of Sound
Local drums/sax duo Bad Luck will perform after the screening!

'A Pollock of sound' is the first-ever full feature documentary film on the legendary group Borbetomagus. With a current career spanning of 37 years, and still going, this explains a lot. From 1979 on, Borbetomagus have persevered in a 'no holds barred' musical style, described and boxed by the media so many times that they remain uncategorised. Coming together in upstate NY, far away from the burgeoning NYC scene, they began having a cult status reaching as far as Northeast Asia. With both saxophone players extending techniques beyond recognition and a guitar player utilizing metal shards besides a plectrum, the band have showcased a whole new vocabulary staying true to the word 'free'. Guerilla filmmaker Jef Mertens brings the story as a visual collage, previously only written in select underground media, as told by band members Don Dietrich, Donald Miller and Jim Sauter. Starring writer Byron Coley, drummer Chris Corsano, guitarist Thurston Moore, Japanese noise outfit Hijokaidan, Switserlands Voice Crack and a pontificating intro by Jason Gross.
