INSECT FACTORY is music from Silver Spring, MD musician Jeff Barsky. Insect Factory creates guitar meditations that focus on texture and mood, building layers of dense sounds that slowly evolve into hypnotic and atmospheric drones.
Insect Factory’s newest LP, “Work”, was released in the fall of 2016, to critical acclaim, receiving honorable mention as a top solo guitar record of the year from NPR’s All Songs Considered, and was called “indisputably gorgeous, lulling, and even, at times, rhythmically alluring” by the Washington City Paper.
Sandy Ewen: an improvising guitar player based in Houston. Recordings out with Jaap Blonk, Weasel Walter, Tom Carter, Henry Kaiser and played in small ensembles with Lydia Lunch, Roscoe Mitchell, Maggie Nichols and others.
