About BOAT BURNING
"Victory by overtone, glory by sound"

“Immersive... Guitarists station themselves around the perimeter of the room and let it rip, producing harmonic overtones similar to those heard in Gregorian chant... Immense...” --WASHINGTON POST

DC experimental music collective BOAT BURNING plays "maximal minimalism," an intricate hybrid of composition and improvisation for electric guitars where elemental passages performed on a profusion of instruments -- sometimes 70 or more -- produce shimmering towers of densely-stacked harmonics. The result is powerful, evocative music that combines the widescreen, panoramic sweep of classical with the sheer physical thrall of punk.

Led by founder / guitarist Andras Fekete, Boat Burning's core ensemble includes guitarists Norm Veenstra (TONE) and Geordie Grindle (The Teen Idles); Jonathan Matis (DC Improvisers Collective) and Robin Diamond on guitar and keys; and Mark Sherman on percussion.

Boat Burning's debut ep, produced by Mission of Burma's Roger Miller and recorded at Inner Ear Studios by legendary Dischord Records engineer Don Zientara, will be released December 2017.

"Mission of Burma's Roger Miller strikes again. Cool lurching art rocker... With Trinary System, Roger created a group where anything goes. A lot of the MOB earmarks are there but he's opened the door to a much wider sound..." --Boston Groupie News

Roger Miller's primary motive for forming Trinary System was to free his guitar playing from post-punk constraints. Starting with a brace of songs he wrote that didn't quite make sense for Mission of Burma, Miller uses Trinary System to delve deeper into the full history of rock, hazily viewed through Miller's personal surrealistic/psychedelic lens, with perhaps a bit of funk pelting the proceedings.

Trinary System features drummer/percussionist Larry Dersch from Miller's keyboard/drums project The Binary System, and bassist Andrew Willis, the former guitarist for The Web. Trinary System released its ep debut "Amplify The Amplifiers" in 2016. Their new album will be released in early 2018.
